Device as a Service offers complete IT hardware, software, and services solution for a regular predictable monthly fee.
The business environment is changing, even more so in these past few months of a health pandemic. Business owners and leaders want to pay for exactly what they want, when they want it, and eliminate unnecessary waste. They no longer want mass market products but complete customization to fit their specific needs.
Due to this increasing demand for customization, new business models have arisen to accommodate them, and the consumption model will naturally continue to spread into nontraditional industries.
What is the Technology Lifecycle?
A technology lifecycle is technically defined as the span of a product’s existence from its initial development through the period of marketing and active use to eventual obsolescence. It is the beginning to end process of acquiring, installing, maintaining, tracking and the retirement of an asset in a business environment. These assets could be servers, laptops, desktop computer, tablets, or mobile phones.
Typically, a technology’s lifecycle can be extended through ongoing maintenance, updates and upgrades. Upon reaching the end of its most effective stage, the IT lifecycle moves to replacement, decommission and salvage.
For organizations large and small, refreshing a fleet of personal computing devices every 3 to 4 years can involve substantial costs, especially when considering peripheral expenditures for procurement, deployment, training, support, recovery, and asset management.
This is where Device as a Service, commonly known as DaaS comes in. (more…)
