Measure the Performance and Usage of IT Resources

When it comes to hardware, IT teams often struggle to gain visibility into the performance of these assets from a user perspective, not to mention how they're actually being used. This can make it difficult to measure the success of IT investments, identify problem areas, and pinpoint root causes of issues. Lakeside Software’s Digital Experience Cloud, powered by SysTrack, provides you with that necessary knowledge of hardware assets, allowing faster discovery of any inefficiencies such as under-performing devices, over-provisioned hardware, unnecessary upgrades, and more.

Hardware rationalization use cases

Need-based procurement

“Does our technology fit our business needs?” is a question looming over the heads of many IT teams these days. The truth is that although you may experience improvements in workflows and productivity from all-new equipment, you may also see a costly amount of unnecessary processing power, memory, or storage, too.  

With the need-based procurement capabilities of Lakeside’s Digital Experience Cloud, you can track the utilization of nearly every IT resource on every physical or virtual desktop. This capability helps you optimize IT procurement and ongoing IT maintenance according to actual business needs, not gut feelings.

Hardware performance management

Are we due for a refresh? Do we need to invest in more resources to support demand? These are questions that any enterprise IT department needs to answer but often has to estimate to the best of their abilities.  

Lakeside’s Digital Experience Cloud captures configuration and performance data on devices throughout your environment to facilitate hardware performance management. The solution also couples that with usage data of critical computer resources to determine where to allocate investment, what to refresh, and more.
