It's Time To Reconsider Chromebooks

For Some Enterprises, Chromebooks Fill A Legitimate Computing Niche

Why Read This Report

There's been a lot of negative press recently about Google Chromebooks claiming that, two years into their market availability, they're failing. However, while Chromebooks clearly aren't for every organization, or even for every worker within a given organization, they can fill valuable niches for particular use cases. Infrastructure and operations (I&O) leaders should ignore the negative publicity and make their own assessments. This report lays out the preconditions of Chromebook adoption, describing the size, vertical industry, and software environment of companies that should consider evaluating Chromebooks. It also identifies several deal killers in which Chromebooks just aren't a good fit. I&O pros should use this report to help build an end user computing hardware portfolio strategy for the future.
