Despite tablets, smartphones and other new mobile devices – the PC remains the central work device for business – the linchpin for creating, accessing and managing documents and data. According to a study by Forrester Consulting , carried out on behalf of Intel in October 2019, 87 percent of IT decision-makers surveyed still consider the PC to be the heart of their company.
Nevertheless, in many organizations today, faced with competing IT priorities, the classic personal computer is given too little importance – or investment. This is a problem. Continued use of old PCs can lead to a long list of unintended negative consequences for the entire organization. Specifically, outdated PCs have a negative impact on productivity and generate high costs. They’re difficult to manage and are prone to cyberattacks.
