On our customers' agenda
These services address core business issues facing organisations today.
Selecting the most appropriate technology to meet business needs can be a time-consuming process, fraught with technical, operational and financial challenges.
Environmental goals, total cost of ownership, business agility and user productivity can all be impacted by IT procurement and lifecycle management decisions.
Choosing and procuring the right technology is just the beginning of the IT supply chain challenge. Organisations also need to ensure effective asseting, configuration and deployment while maintaining technology standards and continuity of supply.
To successfully address all these issues, organisations require a set of diverse skills, systems and processes.
By partnering with a trusted IT provider, however, organisations can avoid the investment associated with establishing these capabilities internally and better meet their IT sourcing needs.
Computacenter's broad portfolio of Supply Chain services simplifies the sourcing and deployment of IT, so you can focus more resources on strategic activities.
Depending on your specific needs, we can assist with:
Configuration and Logistics: Includes hardware configuration, build management and asset tagging. Computacenter can ship pre-built devices to required locations with next-day or guaranteed-time delivery options.
Release and Deployment Management: Facilitates the implementation of changes to the IT environment based on ITIL best practices. These services incorporate:
Patch Management: Ensures devices are updated correctly and quickly to prevent security vulnerabilities, improve functionality and address known issues.
Application Packaging: Ensures Microsoft Installer packages meet business needs and are delivered in line with industry standards
Build Management: Helps create, simplify and manage standardised operating system environments
Product Management: Enables the right products to be identified and seamlessly transitioned into an existing environment
Computacenter's Supply Chain Services enable customers to maximise their investments in new technologies and maintain supply chain efficiency. This will facilitate:
Cost reduction: A simplified IT supply chain reduces administrative overheads and associated costs while improved centralised configuration, release and deployment management helps minimise the total cost of ownership.
Risk avoidance: With centralised and transparent Supply Chain services, we can help standardise your IT infrastructure to reduce the risk of support issues. We can also provide early visibility of product changes to ensure a seamless transition and continuity of supply to multiple geographies. By pre-building and testing new devices in our Configuration Centre, we also minimise the volume of dead-on-arrival devices.
Growth and change: Our services will speed up the deployment of new technologies needed to strategic business initiatives and new members of staff, thereby safeguarding productivity and enhancing competitive advantage.
