GOAL OR METRIC: $375 to $583 Per Business PC

RATIONALE: In addition to the total cost of ownership (TCO) for business PCs, organizations should also look to best practices for PC deployment. The best organizations strive for deployment costs from $373 to $583, versus the typical cost of $795 (a reduction of 30% to 50%). Speed of deployment is another factor. Today it takes an average 2.9 hours to deploy a single PC in most organizations. The best organizations should look to reduce that by as much as 70% to a range of 0.7 to 1.29 hours, but deployment of less than 15 minutes is not only possible, but available.

POTENTIAL RESULTS: Lower short- and longer-term total cost of ownership.

SIDE NOTES

  • Today it takes an average 2.9 hours to deploy a single PC in most organizations. The best organizations should look to reduce that by as much as 70% to a range of 0.7 to 1.29 hours, but deployment of less than 15 minutes is not only possible, but available.
