          Not-So-Hidden Costs of Legacy Systems

          Time to Let Go

          Refreshing PC technology may seem like a strange way to go about lowering TCO—but it’s an idea that’s rapidly gaining popularity among IT professionals. While the initial deployment adds costs to your IT budget, a PC refresh lowers support and maintenance demands—not to mention adding productivity and security benefits. By looking beyond the short-term costs of new hardware, it’s possible to see the long-term savings that more powerful, efficient technology offers.

          The performance benefits of upgrading to the latest PCs are fairly obvious. But did you know that older PCs are at risk for security issues? Not only do security incidents increase as a PC gets older, but so do the costs to resolve them. Recovering older infected PCs requires more resources from your IT staff.

          Rising support costs are a telltale sign that your infrastructure is overdue for an upgrade. As your systems age, you have to do more to them in order to keep pace with your users’ demands. New application deployments, service packs, and patches drive support costs up with every year.

          Cut Costs and Boost Productivity

          The optimal time to refresh your PCs is every 3 years—that’s when you’ll see the maximum payoff. To keep costs low, some organizations stagger their refreshes, rolling out a portion of their total machines at different intervals. While this tactic eliminates the lump sum of a full-out refresh, it actually costs more in the long run. It draws out the deployment, adding costs and creating compatibility and support issues. It’s much more cost-effective, easier on your IT staff, and better for your operations to roll out new PCs all at once.

          If you’ve been putting off updating your infrastructure, now is a great time to discover what a PC refresh can do for your organization. A deployment of cutting-edge, energy-efficient PCs equipped with Windows can help you cut costs, boost productivity, and simplify manageability. A Desktop Transformation Assessment service can help your organization plan for this deployment and ensure a smooth transition to new technology.  When looking at new PCs, you’ll notice there are a lot more options to consider, like thin client computing vs. traditional desktops, powerful workstations, sophisticated mobile technology and the benefits of multi-core processing.

          Powerful Technology to Support Mobility

          A system refresh presents the ideal time to evaluate new notebooks and tablets for your mobile needs, with powerful technology to help your users work more simply, more securely, and more reliably. Features like extended battery life, energy efficiency, easy wireless connectivity, and other time savers, are just a few of the gains you can expect in new offerings.

          Think Big. Go Thin.

          Also, evaluate the fit of thin clients. Thin clients are an excellent way to improve cost efficiency, security, and manageability, and offer hardware and software savings up front. The long-term benefits of thin client computing include reduced support costs due to greater reliability, fewer components, and centralized management. For organizations with typical performance demands, thin clients offer extraordinary value. However, if your work relies heavily on resource-intensive applications or multimedia, you may wish to deploy the latest and most powerful PCs or workstations, or thin clients specifically designed for resource-intensive and multimedia applications.  Also, there has never been a better time to evaluate the fit of Virtual Desktop, or VDI, for your systems.
