Technology major Dell is expanding its PC as a Service (PCaaS) solution in order to expand the reach of Dell PCs among enterprises – promising 25 percent cut in PC lifecycle management cost.
81 percent of young workers say technology influences the job they take, according to the 2016 Dell and Intel Future Workforce Study.
Dell with the PCaaS solution can assist organizations to procure, deploy and support multiple types of devices. Dell can ensure access to PCs, manage and update apps, while protecting against security breaches, driving up productivity and driving down cost.
Dell PCaaS solution offers the latest hardware and peripherals, software, lifecycle services including deployment, support, and asset recovery and financing into one solution with a single predictable, price per seat, per month.
PCaaS enables customers to reduce their daily burden and cost of IT management, allowing them to focus on the transformation of their business. Research shows that customers can reduce the costs of PC lifecycle management by up to 25 percent with PCaaS.
PCaaS Services Delivery Manager provides services engagement for the customer’s Dell PC lifecycle.
Dell Financial Services provides flexible financing options that include the ability to flex the number of systems up or down and/or upgrade PCs mid-term by up to 5, 10 or 15 percent within the 36 and 48-month term options.
Dell has added asset recovery into the standard PCaaS services offer. Asset recovery enables a simplified return of the old equipment to Dell Financial Services with an option for an on-site data wipe service.
Dell also has expanded the software options available for PCaaS customers to protect, secure and manage their investment.
These options include Dell Endpoint Security Suite Enterprise for file-based data encryption and advanced threat prevention; VMware AirWatch for modern, over-the-air unified endpoint management; or Absolute Data and Device Security for asset tracking and adaptive endpoint security.
“IT needs a simpler solution to provide end users with the most relevant and secure technology, and manage it throughout the entire PC lifecycle. They need flexibility in how they purchase manage and retire PCs responsibly – with one point of contact throughout – and we deliver that with PCaaS,” said John Moody, vice president, Client Solutions Services Product Group, Dell.
Dell and VMware also introduce zero-touch Windows 10 Provisioning by VMware AirWatch service, as well as joint engineering initiatives to integrate VMware Workspace ONE, powered by AirWatch technology, with Dell Client Command Suite to enable the next step in cloud management.
These two solutions provide organizations with a choice in how to simplify and streamline PC management, whether they choose a full service solution for procuring, deploying and managing PCs, or opt for self-service PC deployment and management.
“With the integration with AirWatch, setting up a Dell PC can be simple. With a few clicks, employee can have their new device up and running with their applications, making productive in minutes and helping IT reduce the amount of time spent on device provisioning and onboarding,” said Noah Wasmer, senior vice president, mobile products, End-User Computing, VMware.
