Azure. It’s a bit slow sometimes but it’s the future.
We’re thinking about shifting every machine to the cloud in the next 1-2 years

Azure WVD is a pretty good solution with strong security options from reverse connect and Azure Firewall, to Azure AD with Conditional Access, to Defender suite of products. Also, Cloud PC service is probably coming soon.

Not yet, but we're getting ready to pilot virtual desktops in Azure.

How is the experience for users? Are they happy in terms of performance vs. desktops? Haven't ran Citrix in a few years and I'm curious how to performs nowadays.

We are using azure virtual desktop in our organisation. So far experience is very good. Administration is super friendly. It’s been 1.5 years we have moved majority of our staff to azure virtual desktop.

We are using Workspot and have about a quarter of people using it. It's been 5 years and we would like to increase the numbers but cost is still an issue.

Without a doubt - Technical Debt! It's a ball and chain that creates an ever increasing drag on any organization, stifles innovation, and prevents transformation.
