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
