Time Is Money
A comprehensive technology lifecycle management strategy helped Saint Louis University's IT team get a handle on the campus's sprawling device landscape and wring out efficiencies across its desktop purchasing, deployment and support programs.
Identifying and monitoring a college or university's installed hardware and software isn't as straightforward as it might seem. Managing the task manually can be labor-intensive, making it a less-than-desirable day-to-day strategy. Integrated asset management solutions help campuses monitor and optimize their IT resources for improved performance and control, increased accountability and reduced costs.
Stretching Aging Resources
When budgets are tight, institutions often must make do with what they have. IT managers can extend the lifecycle of existing resources (and boost performance in the process) by employing such cost-saving strategies as virtualizing whenever possible and shedding nonessential programs.
