The focus on digitalizing business processes is certainly not just a passing phase. Companies that have not started asking what they can do to prepare themselves for the future are already late to the game. However, a large number of businesses still operate IT workplaces in classic on-premises systems, often at high costs and with limited flexibility and scalability. State-of-the-art cloud workplace solutions offer an effective alternative with several key advantages. For instance, all relevant applications and data can be accessed any time from any location. But is the investment really worth it? And how can companies identify the best solution for their requirements? Cloud provider PIRONET has teamed up with the research and consultancy company Experton Group/ISG to develop a quick, user-friendly tool to assist with these crucial decisions. They are launching their Cloud Workplace Calculator to coincide with CeBIT 2017 in Hannover.
Thanks to its intuitive design, the online tool swiftly reveals the savings to be made from migrating classic desktop environments to the cloud. Just a few reference values – such as the company’s size and sector, IT budget and workplace strategy - are required for the tool to deliver a fully customized cost comparison. This result shows the savings potential both per client and company-wide over a defined period. The calculation is always based on replacing traditional, on-premises client management with a virtual desktop environment (cloud workplace) supplied by a professional service provider. The Cloud Workplace Calculator can be used free of charge at http://cloud-workplace-calculator.com/ .
