Today, companies are regularly relocated in order to be closer to their clients or employees or simply to expand their hiring capacity.
When a company is relocating, the IT department is in high demand throughout the entire project.
Here you will find a detailed explanation of the background behind an IT relocation, the issues for the IT department, and how ceBoxOS® can facilitate the relocation of terminals.
The CIO must anticipate the implementation of terminals and technologies linked to the IT equipment in this new building.
Many companies choose to replace their IT equipment, especially terminals, as part of a relocation in order to offer users a new and homogeneous environment and because the cost of moving a computer from one building to another ranges between €250 and €350 per terminal.
Once the new building is operational, the information system should be activated quickly. For the CIO, it can be a serious challenge: they have to securely configure the network, servers, and terminals in a way that is fully transparent to users.
The configuration of the workstation can be one of the most time-consuming aspects of this process, and one that uses the most resources. IT teams must deploy and configure hundreds, even thousands, of workstations with the organisation’s corporate image (OS + applications).
Even once the workstation is prepared, and with the installation of the operating system and software being prepared in advance, an on-site configuration is essential, at least for a new network.
Prior preparation can be tedious and time-consuming
Deployment deadline is very short
Between €250 and €350 per desktop required for recycling
Onsite configuration necessary, desktop by desktop
Need to take inventory of user needs ahead of time
As part of a relocation, the ceBoxOS® solution simplifies and automates the deployed desktop on a new site. The terminal administrator can manage the project without travelling.
From a central dashboard, the master(s) are prepared and assigned to users. In summary, the ceBoxOS® solution makes it possible to distribute corporate images remotely, and on 100% of desktops, without placing excessive demands on the network.
