Zero Touch Deployment
The number of devices in organisations has rapidly increased in recent years. Although this increases employee productivity, it also raises the workload of your IT department. The purchasing and configuration of the additional devices results in a lot of extra time-consuming work. It can be difficult to maintain an overview when it comes to device management. Until recently, this was the IT department’s responsibility, but Device as a Service (DAAS) ensures that this can easily be transferred. DAAS is our way of relieving the burden on your IT team and taking care of the entire device lifecycle.
Successfully onboarding hybrid workers: here’s how to do it
Want to know more about zero touch deployment in practice? If you’re onboarding new colleagues in a hybrid working environment, zero touch deployment is a huge asset for both your IT and HR departments.
Smartphones have become essential to organisations. It is important that these devices are held to the same standard as other hardware. Often, new employees are given a new device together with a manual that helps them install the necessary apps and at the end of the lifecycle the employee hands in the smartphone. What happens to the device between these two times is not clear. Bechtle DAAS has a different approach to this. Thanks to our Zero Touch Deployment solution, you can enjoy a number of advantages.
What is Zero Touch Deployment?
DAAS ensures that devices are entirely configured and delivered ready for use, without your IT department needing to give them an in-house check. The devices are delivered to your organisation or to employees at home. This makes the logistical process for rolling out new devices simpler, especially now when working from home is so prevalent. If a new employee joins your organisation, then you can simply order a new device which will be configured and delivered ready-to-use at your office or at the employee’s home. The employee uses their existing organisational log in details and can immediately start working.
You may recognise the following situation. The mobile device landscape in your organisation needs to be updated, this means you need to purchase 100 new smartphones. When the devices are delivered, the time-consuming task begins of manually inputting the correct settings, downloading the required applications (for security reasons) and completing the further configuration of the devices. With DAAS, you make use of a Zero Touch Deployment solution and can say goodbye to manual installations. This means that your IT department saves a lot of time and your employees can quickly get to work when they receive a new device. (This also applies to DAAS Compute)
