End-user Computing and Mobility Metrics

GOAL OR METRIC: One Automated Image Management Console

RATIONALE:.The number, variety and versions of applications can add tremendous inefficiency, and increases the costs of licensing and support. Two goals are clear: have as few desktop/laptop images to manage as possible and reduce the number of operating systems supported. Best practices are that organizations have one console or tool to manage all applications, images and devices.

POTENTIAL RESULTS:  Lower cost to support because you have fewer versions to manage and lower licensing costs

SIDE NOTES

  • Worldwide among more than 130,000 laptop and desktop devices, Dell uses only one image and uses one console to manage them.
