This IDC InfoBrief explores an emerging model for end-user device procurement and deployment. Device as a Service (DaaS) offers a multi-year agreement in which procurement, deployment, device management, services, and lifecycle management are all handled by one vendor. This new model has the potential to transform how enterprise IT refreshes and manages its employees’ devices (e.g., desktop PC, notebook, smartphone, tablet).
HP Device as a Service combines elements from the company’s hardware and lifecycle services portfolios. By allowing customers to combine a tailored array of devices and services into a single contract with a single monthly payment, HP DaaS offers significant benefits for many companies. Plus, HP offers an optional analytics platform that can predict problems before they occur.
