RES Baseline Desktop Analyzer
Every IT project must first consider its impact on the user. It is therefore key to have an accurate insight into your current desktop infrastructure, before making any changes. After all, changes can impact the operating system and important applications. Even if you know what was installed on the laptop or desktop when it was delivered the user, it is often unknown what has happened since then.
How can you, the IT professional, make changes to the hardware, operating system or even application(s) for your users, if you don’t know what is installed and used today?
RES Baseline Desktop Analyzer is here to help
RES Baseline Desktop Analyzer is a free online service that provides insight into the current state of the desktop environment. This insight is a critical first step in any IT project.
RES Baseline Desktop Analyzer will give you a clear insight into your:
- Hardware Inventory
- Application Landscape
- User Population
- Location Layout
- Printing Topology
This information will help you assess and predict the impact of changes, such as an office relocation, hardware replacement or an upgrade to Windows 7, on your users.
