One of the most dramatic ways to reduce IT costs yet boosting productivity is with thin-client computing. Gartner, one of the leading IT research firms is predicting as much as a 50% increase in thin-client computing, making it one of the fastest growing sectors in IT Thin-client computing can save 30%-70% of your IT costs.
With thin-client computing, instead of running applications locally on PCs, applications run from a centralized server and deliver screen updates to the “clients”. Much like mainframe and dumb terminal computing, thin-clients are easily scalable, making them a great option not only for large companies, but also for small to mid-sized companies.
Thin Client technology greatly reduces desktop support and cuts down the cost of the standard corporate desktop. Thin Client units are more cost effective (approximately 1/3 the price), require no maintenance, consume very little power, have low bandwidth requirements, and are immune to virus and worm attacks.
SIA has experience not only in the planning and deployment thin-client technologies to its customers, but also in the overall reduction of IT costs while improving overall company productivity and performance.
