High Cost Savings Factor to Drive the Market
One of the significant reasons for deployment of thin client solutions in an enterprise is cost saving. Cost savings are possible through lower device costs as compared to PC substitutes, and the option to reuse older hardware. Cost saving is also achieved by making the systems energy efficient through lower heat generation. IT operations could benefit through the central management of all the thin client devices, together with patching and resource allocation between devices.
Thin clients and the transformation of “fat” clients (PCs and laptops) to thin clients provides an opportunity for thin client dealers to market their products to cost-sensitive enterprises due to the relatively low cost of refurbishment of old hardware that has already been deployed, and/or purchasing new thin client hardware solutions.
High cost savings as a driver accounts for high impact on this market, as it is a factor that most of the companies are looking forward to.
