In an environment of accelerating business cycles and geographically dispersed teams, Intel’s employees have greater demands for collaboration and seamless connectivity–and they want the freedom to choose the devices that best suit their work styles.
Intel IT is facilitating this ‘consumerization of IT’ with an innovative approach, letting employees use their own companion devices to access corporate data. At the same time, we are enabling greater productivity and collaboration by providing employees with higher-performing mobile business PCs and new tools.
Enabling global collaboration
To enable a collaborative environment that helps Intel’s workforce increase personal productivity, build stronger global teams, and work more effectively with external partners, Intel IT is deploying high performance mobile business PCs, enterprise servers and an advanced wireless network.
Increasing productivity with mobile PCs
After investigating various options, Intel IT has selected mobile business PCs as our standard computing platform. Their highly portable and robust feature set provides a productivity advantage to Intel employees by enabling collaboration and inspiring innovation throughout all areas of the enterprise.
Proactive PC management
Maximizing client stability is extremely important. When a system or application crashes, it has a substantial impact on user productivity, consumes considerable IT support resources and as users experience more frequent PC issues, and can develop a negative perception of an IT organization. Intel IT is implementing a strategy based on proactively fixing problems before users experience an impact.
The future of the enterprise: Preparing for the Compute Continuum
To support IT consumerization, Intel IT is shifting focus to deliver services to any device. By taking advantage of a combination of technologies and trends—such as ubiquitous internet connectivity, virtualization, and cloud computing—we have an opportunity to redefine the way we provide services to meet changing user requirements. Intel calls the vision of seamless, consistent experiences across devices the “Compute Continuum,” and Intel IT has established a program to help deliver these capabilities.
Intel IT spotlight: Considering desktop virtualization
With the goal of improving business productivity, Intel IT has embraced desktop virtualization as a core strategy to improve employee choice and flexibility. This approach allows IT to focus on delivering secure services rather than managing hardware platforms.
