True IT Hardware Lifecycle

Why does my business need a hardware lifecycle plan?

As companies embrace the hybrid workplace, lifecycle management for end-user devices is becoming more complex. However, a few significant advantages exist to having a plan. The first is minimizing your expenses. This is accomplished in various ways, including by preventing overspending on the incorrect hardware during the procurement process and by improving your capacity to repair and update goods to increase their longevity.

Improved productivity is the second significant benefit of having a defined plan. A clear upgrade schedule, for instance, assures that you won’t use hardware past the point of no return when its performance declines because it directly interferes with employees’ ability to do their jobs.

The likelihood of unforeseen outages can be decreased with a good plan. Critical hardware assets can be made less likely to fail and render businesses completely unusable by being monitored and maintained. Of course, even the best strategy cannot totally eliminate the possibility of hardware failures. Still, it can ensure that there are backup plans in place so businesses can swiftly resume operations in the event of an unexpected event.

Here are the 5 stages of the Hardware Lifecycle

1. Procurement

The procurement process begins with the actual asset purchase and is the initial phase of maintaining your IT asset lifecycle. There are always several options available for any IT asset your company requires, but your choice should satisfy your business’ objectives without going over budget. Therefore, it’s crucial to determine the business needs based on the collected data before making a purchasing decision. 

The procurement process entails:

  • Creating purchase orders
  • Predefining the Purchase Order workflow
  • Linking to cost budgets
  • Approval of the Purchase Order
  • Making the purchase and adding it to the inventory

2. Deployment

Our engineers can assist in creating a structured deployment strategy and process-oriented implementation plan. For example, the hardware deployment can include configuration and installation, placing hardware and software assets into production environments, and notating physical asset location.

  • Reduce the time and costs associated with deploying devices like desktops, laptops, servers, switches, and router installations.
  • Develop preconfigured and custom configurations to streamline installations.

3. Maintenance
