An evolving need
Gartner says worldwide PC shipments grew 2.8% in second quarter of 2020.
This aligns with the trend we’ve been seeing among businesses having to pivot in the face of the pandemic, sending employees to work remotely. Companies are seeking devices that can:
Although device usage increased this year, many IT leaders still have some reservations:
Among the top devices procured to combat security concerns are leading brands powered by Windows.
With the Windows 7 end of support earlier this year, many companies are upgrading to Windows 10, the most popular software choice holding 47.65% share of the operating system market.
“Customers are using Windows PCs to stay productive, connect and learn in this time. In fact, over 4 trillion minutes are being spent on Windows 10 a month. A 75% increase year on year.” – Panos Panay, Chief Product Officer of Microsoft
And the use of mobile devices paired with secure, efficient and powerful software may only continue to rise.
“Our best estimate is that 25–30% of the workforce will be working from home multiple days a week by the end of 2021.” – Kate Lister, President of Global Workplace Analytics
But among today’s IT leaders:
Inadequate and/or patchwork device management processes may also mean wasted time and money taking care of issues as they arise.
And sometimes, IT simply has other priorities than device management.
While this is understandable, it leaves devices and the employees who rely on them hanging and waiting for sufficient support and care.
Refresh cycles: IT teams are struggling to keep up with refresh cycles.
Employee experience: Adoption and device experience is rated as poor or below expectations.
Priorities: The IT organization needs to prioritize higher-level business objectives — not end-user devices and support.
Anticipating cost: Device and lifecycle management costs are difficult to anticipate and manage.
Provisioning: The IT organization wants to move away from imaging, but lacks modern provisioning methods of skills.
Incurring T&C cost: Asset management is lacking, and complex leasing end processes drain time and resources.
