For government agencies today, lower budgets and receding revenue streams make productivity more difficult to achieve than ever before. With too much work to do and not enough people, achieving maximum productivity is a priority.
When seeking more productivity by purchasing new, more efficient computers, many government agencies focus on equipment performance benchmarks or initial cost. But agencies should look at the big picture, according to Hewlett-Packard and AMD — two industry leaders working together to bring faster, more energy-efficient PCs with VISION Pro Technology to homes, offices, businesses and governments. That means examining actual workloads instead of focusing on benchmark data. It also means looking at significant savings from reduced power consumption and maintenance after the purchase.
“We’re finding that people often make decisions based on benchmarks that may not represent the day-to-day work that their workers actually perform, so they might be overpaying for their technology,” says Rick Indyke, manager of public sector business development at AMD.
