What is most valuable?

The ability to actually interface with a Windows desktop is valuable.

How has it helped my organization?

It makes things easier. The app that they provide you works off Mac and Windows. Even if I have my instance upon Azure or any other cloud platform, I can just use the normal Desktop Services app to give it an IP, the logon credentials, and... more»

What needs improvement?

When I am connecting, I can do so from a Mac command line. However, to log in to a Windows server, I need to use this client. If Microsoft can find a way to remote into a Windows VN without using a client like this, that would be great. I... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Applications are ready for BYOD scenario’s, since RDP is a multi-OS/device technology. No more app testing for client OS migrations. The valuable features I mentioned assure a stable and highly available environment with maximum uptime for... more»

What is most valuable?

It becomes easy to use since I am using a Mac. It is easy for me to use Windows when I'm using the remote desktop. It's very compatible with Mac. It's easy for me to do any of my tasks that require Windows.

How has it helped my organization?

For my university project, I was doing a data mining project. I had a Mac which does not support the Excel field add-ons that only Windows supported. The report desktop feature helped me to just commute into it.

What do you think of Microsoft Remote Desktop Services?

Valuable Features: It allows access to the computer from any location. • Improvements to My Organization: I can telecommute into the office. Since we have to be on a secure network, it gives me access into my system at work that is more secure than my system at home. • Room for Improvement: There could be better options and it could be faster. I haven't had too many issues with it, but it's just a very basic program. • Stability Issues: I haven't had any issues with the stability of the product. • Scalability Issues: I haven't experienced any scalability issues.
