Executive Summary

PCs are essential in today's enterprises, yet managing a PC fleet can consume a significant portion of IT's time and budget. Finding ways to keep employees productive with powerful notebook PCs while keeping IT management costs low requires a combination of sound IT management practices and technology that maximizes benefits to users and minimizes effort for IT. Intel? Centrino? with vPro? technology is the culmination of a large-scale initiative to support efforts to keep business users as productive as possible on notebooks and help IT keep cost and efforts low to manage the entire PC fleet. This paper presents the results of research sponsored by Intel and conducted by Wipro Product Strategy & Architecture (PSA) practice, designed to examine the potential impact of Intel Centrino Pro processor technology on the total cost of ownership (TCO) for business notebook PCs. This analysis examines how Intel Centrino Pro processor technology can help reduce infrastructure complexity, and how the technology affects manageability and IT costs. This research extends concepts originally described in Wipro's New Insights on PC Management study, which detailed the relationship between infrastructure complexity and overall notebook support costs.
