IDC PlanScape: Optimizing Worker Productivity and Data Analysis Through the Use of a Workstation

Authors: Lloyd Cohen, Kevin Permenter
Abstract

This IDC study offers practical guidance to help IT and non-IT leaders justify investment in workstation solutions. This guidance includes answers to the following questions:

  • Why are workstations important for consideration for investment?
  • What are workstations and what are their key use cases?
  • Who are the key stakeholders that should be involved in workstation initiatives? What are their roles and responsibilities for promoting successful workstation projects?
  • How can IT and non-IT leaders help accelerate investment in workstations for their organization?

"Workstations now offer more budget-friendly, high-end processors, so users can purchase a machine that meets their requirements without exceeding their budget. High-end PC users can now migrate to a workstation that provides increased performance reliability and with better graphics for a small price increase. High-end PC users are also beginning to migrate to workstations for the increased performance, reliability, and improved graphics capability for only a small price increase," said Lloyd Cohen, director of Worldwide Market Analysis.
