Computers have revolutionized the world completely. Information technology has uplifted business and trade, thereby increasing the economy of the society. Every industry has undergone the revolution, with the office sector being no exception. Traditional offices are long gone. Now, every office is computerized to achieve speed and work accuracy, productivity, the integrity of information and better communication, data security and storage, and networking. Computers in offices reduce stress for workers, improving work efficiency. Computers run deep that the offices will stand still and be unable to function in their absence. However, to organizations like schools and enterprises with limited budgets and labor, adapting to a computerized environment on-demand or for business development becomes a challenge. The traditional computers are expensive with hardware and software expenses at the same time. They are complex, bulky and require more than the allotted budget. They require routine IT operation and maintenance, which is also a daunting task.
Operational Pressure: The IT maintenance staff takes care of the operation, maintenance and repair, and upgrades of the hardware and software in a company. It seems feasible for a count of ten computers in an office. If the number increases to fifty or reaches some hundred units of computers, the IT maintenance team has to work in shifts and the operation and maintenance become hard and tiresome.
High overall input cost: The initial procurement cost of an independent host is high and a single unit consumes 250W energy. They are prone to hardware and software failures and require immediate repair or replacement. PCs usually have a three-year refresh cycle, but many companies will not eliminate computers that have exceeded their useful life, and let the computer to turn down slow and affect work efficiency.
Data leakage peaks high: The staff store data locally in independent traditional computers, which is difficult to secure effectively. The risk of data leakage or data loss is high during any repair and malfunction, or sudden power failure and it is easy to copy important information to the USB devices.
Waste of resources: Offices use traditional PCs primarily to process office files, send or receive data, search web materials, etc. This scenario makes many resources of PCs to become idle and wasted.
Failure in office mobility: The independent desktop of the office is bound to the desktop of the host, inhibiting office mobility. When the office demands a change or adjustment to a temporary location or a meeting, using a computer for discussion or deploying a temporary workstation is hard with the unavailability of the compatible software.
