If you are like me, you can barely keep track and manage the devices on your plate as it is – and now your school/organization is going to add a Chromebook for every student/employee? While Chromebooks can be less management intensive than a Windows PC, we usually see a LOT more Chrome devices than PC’s because Chromebooks are extremely cost-effective. The time savings you gain due to a simpler device are lost by the sheer number of devices that you’re now responsible for. More devices mean that we need better management and inventory solutions.
Join IT Pro Today contributor, Eric Rux along with Ken Galvin and Jody Evans of Quest for an informative discussion that will help you understand solutions to your Chromebook and network device management headaches.
In this webcast, you’ll learn about:
- Today’s pain points when it comes to asset management
