With enterprise organizations struggling to keep pace with a rapidly changing workforce, the challenges facing IT continue to mount. This IDC study, commissioned by Intel, set out to learn about the current challenges around the deployment and use of PCs in organizations and better understand the potential benefits of leveraging a single silicon platform.
Meet the Challenge of Hybrid Work
The massive shift to hybrid work has dramatically increased complexity for IT, which must deploy and manage PCs for employees spread around the country or the world. And many are doing this while working remotely themselves. In this paper, you’ll discover the benefits of standardizing on a single silicon platform, and the key learnings from the recent IDC survey such as:
There is a 29% increase in the amount of time a company spends supporting a fleet of PCs with multiple silicon vendors.
51% of the respondents said leveraging a single silicon platform would make securing PCs more efficient.
33% said it takes more time to manage each PC if their company supports multiple silicon platforms - The average increase in time was about 15%.
34% thought standardizing on a single silicon platform would make the job of imaging PCs more efficient.
39% said standardizing on a single silicon platform could improve fleet stability resulting in better performance and less down time.

In this IDC white paper commissioned by Intel, learn how an IT organization can limit complexity while also cutting back on the time it spends imaging, securing, and managing PCs — as well as creating a better user experience by moving to a single silicon platform.
Discover IDC’s Key Findings
Improve user experience. One of the key challenges for IT with more hybrid work is addressing high levels of complexity and the potential negative impact this can have on employees.
Save precious time. Standardizing on a single silicon platform makes it possible to save time both at the initial deployment and for the entire management life cycle of the product.
Simplify and streamline. One critical benefit of vPro is that Intel evolved the platform to be highly capable without adding excessive complexity.
Make management easier. 72% of the respondents said vPro makes PCs easier to manage.
As the world becomes increasingly complex, there is value in looking toward simplicity where possible. One area where this can be true is standardizing on a single silicon platform.
As you can see, there are clear potential benefits of standardizing the vectors of security, deployment, management, and overall experience on a single silicon platform.
