Nowadays, companies are regularly relocated in order to be closer to their clients or employees or simply to expand their hiring capacity.
As part of a relocation, the IT department is in high demand throughout the entire project.
Here’s a detailed explanation of the background of an IT relocation, the issues for the IT department, and how ceBox® facilitates 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 deployed quickly. For the CIO, it’s a serious challenge: They have to securely configure the network, servers, and terminals in a way that is fully transparent to users.
The workstation part is one of the most time-consuming and the one that uses the most resources. IT teams must deploy and configure hundreds, even thousands, of tworksations with the organization’s corporate image (OS + applications).
Even with preparing the workstation and installing the operating system and software in advance, an onsite configuration is essential, at least for a new network.
Prior preparation tedious and time-consuming
Deployment deadline very short
Between €250 and €350 per desktop for recycling
Onsite configuration necessary, desktop by desktop
Need to take inventory of user needs ahead of time
As part of a relocation, the ceBox® solutions simplifies and automates the deployment desktop on a new site. The terminal administrator can manage the project without traveling.
From a central dashboard, they prepare the master(s) and assign them to users. In summary, the ceBox® solution makes it possible to distribute corporate images remotely, and on 100% of desktop, without placing too high of a demand on the network.
