The modern workplace is flexible and mobile. Do desktop PCs have any importance at all in this scenario? Yes, because in the next few years as well employees will spend their time in the office and the desktop PC remains one of the established standards for efficient working. But what will change will be the overall conditions of the workplace and the interaction with the office and flexible working. Current desktop solutions are, for example, Thin Clients. These “thin” PCs make easy and flexible working possible.
Because comprehensive hardware and the associated moving parts can quickly cause space bottlenecks, especially in small offices. In the next few years office space will become ever more expensive, since rents are rising. The result: smaller workplaces, that must be set up more efficiently.
Anyone who does not want to do without desktop PCs here will find that Thin Clients can be a genuine alternative. Thin Clients are flexible and convenient to set up, and in view of their compact construction, being a slimmed-down PC, they can fit into any workplace. This means that Thin Clients are just handling the data entry and are managed centrally, which makes them a very cost-effective solution. The central management means that data is better protected, since local storage is not possible any longer.
The programs and updates are also installed centrally, thus making the management of the PCs simpler and more cost-effective. And nonetheless you can work on a Thin Client in just the same way as on a conventional PC: the central management and control makes it possible for a Thin Client to have access to centrally stored data. In this way thin Clients offer the advantage that they are configured as small and very economical embedded systems.
They do not use much electric current, are often very cheap to buy, and the central management of the system makes it possible to change a defective Client very quickly.
Thin Client solutions save in interaction with virtualization costs, because the administration work is centralised. Thus, for example, software updates can be installed quickly and easily, because only individual images need to be updated instead of each Client individually. Thin Client solutions are ideal for the flexible workplace: processes can be automated, hardware is reduced to a minimum. In addition, thanks to virtualisation there is not an uncontrolled proliferation of applications or operating systems.
The users can hardly store anything locally – no virus scanners or firewalls are needed on the Clients. Operating systems can be installed easily and are managed centrally.
