Microsoft's Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD), a relatively new technology released in late 2019, has proven to be a vital solution for many enterprises. During the pandemic and subsequent stay-at-home orders, companies found themselves needing to provide their employees overnight with an in-office experience at their home. Powered by Azure, this cloud-based application virtualization service provides users with a complete desktop experience with top level security and compliance — in the office, at home, or anywhere in the world. In addition, Windows Virtual Desktop has also saved companies time and money by eliminating issues that employees would face in an on-premise environment, and by creating a better user experience.
However, as with any new technology, there are still a few issues that can arise and persist, causing end-user inefficiencies and lost time. In due course, Microsoft will address them through improvements in the product but in the meantime, customers need quick, easy, and automated ways to fix them. In this post, I will take you through some of the issues and show you how Access Symphony can solve them in an automated fashion, rather than using the manual way Microsoft is prescribing.
