I saw a sign recently with these six words: Change, of any sort, requires courage.
Change can be so difficult that sometimes we’d prefer to convince ourselves that it’s unnecessary. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right?
But how do you know it ain’t broke? Complex systems and (infra)structures often fool us with their own forms of what amounts to landscape amnesia: By inches, conditions deteriorate, and this happens so slowly and in such small increments that we do not notice.
And maybe that would be okay, for a while anyway, as long as everyone (read: your competitors) accepts those deteriorated conditions. But when others around you begin to c-h-a-n-g-e — and they change in ways that make them more productive and cost-efficient, then anyone who does not change has a problem.
So even if you can’t explicitly point to the kinds of obvious desktop management travails that drive some businesses to Desktop-as-a-Service, you may see hints about your organization’s need to update an aging and inadequate IT environment from indicators like …
- Ongoing desktop security challenges
- IT support costs that are rising fast
- Needed hardware upgrades that are too costly
- Underutilized IT solutions
- Difficulty identifying root causes of IT problems
