Desktop management is a comprehensive approach to managing and securing all the computer systems within an organization. Despite its name, desktop management also includes overseeing laptops and other computing devices that are used within the organization.
For IT managers, keeping users' computers up-to-date can be a challenge, especially given the never-ending task of upgrading software to prevent security breaches. Desktop management software helps administrators automate, standardize, secure, and audit all the computing devices within their enterprise.
There's a saying in IT that goes, "If you're going to do it more than once, automate it." With the number and type of computing devices—and the scores of software applications running on them increasing rapidly—there are plenty of opportunities to apply this sentiment to desktop management.
For businesses with multiple servers, desktops, laptops, and tablets—each running different versions of different operating systems with their own set of software applications—it can be time-consuming and challenging to ensure they're all managed and secure. Not to mention this all has to be done while the admins look after the hardware and software inventory, configurations, security, patches, and software licenses.
Which desktop management software is best for your enterprise? The answer depends on the features that you're looking for. Every business has its own set of demands, but there are a few common factors that are important to consider.
