Google Chrome OS: Accelerating Device Lifecycle Management
Google Chrome Os Accelerating Device Lifecycle Management
IT organizations are facing increasing endpoint device management challenges, the result of increased IT complexity as well as the COVID-19 pandemic and concomitant shift to working from home. One-fifth of knowledge workers reported that devices were the area in which their company was least prepared to effectively facilitate the work-from-home transition.
ESG testing in a controlled environment demonstrated the speed and simplicity of device lifecycle management with Chrome Enterprise. Download the report to learn the difference between Google Chrome OS and Windows laptops:
- A Chromebook as delivered from the factory was configured in under 7 minutes, compared with over 25 minutes for a Windows laptop (76% faster), and required approximately half the number of user intervention steps.
- A factory reset and redeployment of an existing laptop was 96% faster with Chrome (more than 29 minutes versus less than two minutes).
- ESG found that a typical mid-sized organization can reduce IT admin costs by more than 60% and lower TCO by more than $650,000 over three years with Chrome Enterprise.
