More-Efficient PC Imaging on a Stable Platform
PC image deployment can be challenging because of frequent driver updates and incompatibilities that require retesting and validation. IT teams can overcome these challenges with a PC platform that assures stability based on extensively tested and verified components with limited updates over a period of time. A stable, validated platform makes it effortless to manage life cycle complexities, reduce incident count, and experience flexible transitions to new technologies, helping ensure the continuity of business operations.
Challenges in PC Management and Imaging
Managing a business PC fleet has become more complex, due to the sheer volume of software updates and driver incompatibilities involved in today's IT environment. This can cause challenges with PC imaging in particular.
PC imaging, or system imaging, helps IT teams rapidly set up and configure multiple PC form factors for users. An image requires extensive system testing and validation to ensure driver compatibility and that applications work properly. This qualification process can take up to 90 days prior to rolling out images across the business.
Frequent driver and software updates mean retesting to validate updated configurations. IT teams also must schedule and deploy a new rollout, which can be disruptive to employees.
With stability out of the box, the Intel vPro® platform gives IT control over the PC management life cycle and delivers the latest platform technologies in one integrated and validated solution.
Benefits of a Stable Platform
Having a reliable platform designed to scale for future growth helps businesses avoid the network or software compatibility problems that may arise when deploying less stable computing infrastructure. Stable platforms also give users peace of mind, knowing they can expect their PCs to perform well for years, with minimal downtime or disruption.
