Does your PC lifecycle management (PCLM) reflect the issues associated with mobile users? Many organizations face expensive inefficiencies by not managing mobile assets effectively. These inefficiencies include dispersed and manual data collection, and inventory tools that are dependent on a connection to the company network.
PC life-cycle management (PCLM) solutions primarily focus on deploying or moving an application or an operating environment to a new user location. Functions include packaging, distributing, installing , and updating an application or an operating environment. These solutions provide a certain level of automation and are certainly more advanced than dealing strictly with scripts. However, they have complex workflows and do not provide the highest level of automation. In today's multidevice world, where the average user carries three or more devices, this paradigm alone is not agile enough for modern end users.
IT organizations are largely siloed between the desktop and mobile management worlds. IT has addressed management of mobile devices with modern enterprise mobility management (EMM) solutions. However, Windows desktops have been managed separately using older PC lifecycle management (PCLM) technologies, which have fallen short of basic IT and end user expectations of today’s evolved, mobile-cloud workforce.
The VMware AirWatch® Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) solution is a single, platform-independent approach for managing every device and every operating system across any organizational use case. The solution combines traditional client management requirements with modern EMM efficiencies enabling IT to deliver OS policies, patches, and apps over-the-air. Cloud-first management with instant push technologies and self-service capabilities ensure lower cost management, better security, and peak user experience regardless of the device being used to access the corporate environment.
