As mentioned, the user experience must be as good as a local session since that is what you are trying to replace. You can provide more benefits (login anywhere, smaller footprint on desk, etc...) but if it is slow or unreliable or unavailable then no benefit is going to matter.

"User experience" is the key element around which all parameters of a Virtual User Session infrastructure must be built. Why user experience? Because a good perception of the solution from a business point of view is key to selling it and towards future investments.
The parameters include stability, scalability, performance, accessibility, mobility and other 'requirements'.
It is evident that business requirements define how the above parameters are filled in, within the framework of time and cost. Anyway, the user experience, i.e. the client as your major shareholder, must always come first.

When I compared various remote access tools and solutions, I found the Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops suite and TeamViewer to be the most effective ones currently available on the market. One of the things that I initially noticed about Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops was the high level of scalability that their security features offer. The Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops solution suite is designed to enable us to keep our networks protected from even the most advanced virus and malware payloads. It offers us several scaling functionalities that we can rely on when we need to upgrade and maintain our system security. These options include: Automatic upgrades. We are able to create a cloud-based security environment for our network. This environment is constantly scanning for potential points of vulnerability. When it finds a vulnerability, the system automatically installs the latest security patches. Centralized security upgrade patching. The suite has a central dashboard that we can use to upgrade and manage the security of all of the devices in our network at one time. Simplified data backup and settings restoration process. If something happens to one of our team’s network-connected devices, the suite backs up our data in a way that enables us to easily transfer it to a new device and restore the network settings on that new device to match the one that was lost. A major benefit that Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops’ suite of solutions offers us is the ability to keep our costs down without compromising on functionality. It allows us to allocate resources to areas of the highest need by employing several cost-saving policies. These policies include: Centralized OS migration and upgrades. Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops’ suite of solutions make the process of migration and upgrade a single, centralized process, making large teams and expenditures of time unnecessary. Access our networks from any device. We don’t have to purchase a specific device type when we want to set up remote network access. This reduces the amount that we need to spend to establish remote network capabilities for our network administrators. One of the aspects of TeamViewer that I appreciate is the way that it supplies us with a comprehensive suite of security capabilities. These allow us to remotely manage our networks while maintaining a high level of security. These capabilities include: Remote device monitoring. TeamViewer runs a security algorithm that allows us to monitor our devices and spot issues before they can escalate. We can watch all parts of our network to keep ahead of potential issues. Endpoint protection. TeamViewer has layers of anti-virus and anti-malware software that protect our endpoint devices from many different kinds of threats. We can also use this solution to easily manage the day-to-day operations of our network. TeamViewer makes it easy for us to run our network efficiently. It has a single dashboard that we can utilize to manage all of our IT assets and resources. Ultimately, either Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops or TeamViewer will empower you to take control of every aspect of your remote network access and management process.

The big benefit that our customers see in using remote access tools is the support for their hybrid work environment.   You can work from home, in the office, on the road, or pretty much anywhere. Your user experience won't suffer and this will provide you with the flexibility and security required to support today's work environments.
