This episode is sponsored by Columbus.

Microsoft has made some important updates to its desktop-as-a-service lineup this year, with the launches of Windows 365 and Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD). To help make sense of the differences, the strengths of each, and how they stack up in the broader marketplace, we are joined  by Jason Valenzano, senior technical solution architect for managed services at Columbus. Jason walks us through some of the  details and differentiating factors of Microsoft's virtual desktop offerings and where organizations can best apply each one today.

Factors like onboarding and the complexity of the surrounding IT environment, including security and hybrid needs should be at the top of the list, he says. But don't underestimate the employee experience benefits of the right desktop as a service offering like the flexibility of work location, streamlined IT support, and choice of the devices people can use to get work done.
