Both public and private organizations acknowledge that managing the PC lifecycle becomes more complicated and expensive as the variety of PC devices and employee workstyles increase. In order to be fully productive, different groups of employees have different needs in terms of end-user device hardware, software, and configuration. While IT departments are trying to provide and support a wider range of technology to an increasingly dispersed and mobile workforce, while maintaining low end- user disruption, they are also under a lot of cost pressure. However, consolidating processes and enlisting the help of a vendor partner, such as Dell, might reduce costs and provide expert-level knowledge for better PC lifecycle management operations.

Managing the PC life-cycle environment can be a complicated and expensive process. Enterprises with old and outdated
systems require increased support, have higher maintenance costs, and see interrupted workforce productivity. However,

desktop infrastructure environments at their organization. All respondents were significantly involved in the decision-making
process for PC and device management and had significant expert-level knowledge about the PC life-cycle process.
