New research conducted by Gartner has revealed that there are better opportunities for the deployment of hosted virtual desktops (HDVs) in China and India.
According to the results of a survey, the economic downturn means that some areas, such as Australia, are struggling to find room for HDVs in their budgets and it is unlikely that there will be any large deployments over the next year.
This is despite them having a high priority among large and medium-sized companies in the country.
In comparison, markets such as China and India have better opportunities, but place the adoption of HDVs further down their lists of priorities.
Lillian Tay, principal research analyst at Gartner, said that although the market for hosted virtual networks will "accelerate rapidly through 2013", vendors must "approach emerging and mature markets with different go-to-market strategies based on a multitude of different local factors".
