As the Device becomes more and more ubiquitous and powerful, organisations are placing greater focus on them to improve and increase their business revenues and practices. Devices such as Thin Clients, Point-of-Service terminals (Tills), Kiosks and Digital Signage are growing in their prevalence and importance. As such, organisations are now focusing on the effective management of all IT resources including those that traditionally may not have been managed using Systems Management Tools.
Do you currently use SCCM to manage your IT estate?
Do devices form part of your IT estate?
