Lenovo Indroduces PC as a Service Model
This week at Lenovo’s Tech World Transform event the company introduced a new PC, and a new program to offer PCs as a service.
As more companies embrace a subscription model, like Microsoft’s Office 365, and Adobe’s Creative Cloud, it only makes sense that hardware would be the next to fall in line. PC as a service means that a company would purchase the subscription, and be given a PC or tablet or any other type of hardware to use during the subscription period. Lenovo PC as a Service is available now. To find out more and contact a Lenovo PCaaS expert, click here.
In a prepared statement Lenovo said “As new generations of tech-savvy employees prioritize device flexibility and work mobility, organizations are adapting the way they approach and manage workplace technology. The shift towards agile IT, Choose Your Own Device and multi-device synergy is shaping our personalized computing future. “Utilizing this subscription could simplify the financing, deployment, management and disposal process of computing assets by packaging it into a single, configurable solution with a fixed monthly cost. Worry about hardware failure, and budgeting for upgrades could become a thing of the past within this model for businesses.
Lenovo also introduced the ThinkStation P320 Tiny, which is a small machine that packs a serious punch. The P320 Tiny harnesses the power of the latest Intel® Core i processors and relies on NVIDIA® Quadro® Graphics to achieve ISV certification to deliver the performance demanded across a range of professional applications. ThinkStation P320 Tiny is available now at $799.
Both of these announcements show that Lenovo is definitely thinking ahead to how businesses function in today’s world. The PCaaS program is designed to eliminate the burden of buying, deploying and managing computing assets. Using the PCaaS can increase product lifecycle efficiency and reduce overall total cost of ownership. It is really something to consider when thinking about your IT budget needs.
