Personal Computer Life-cycle Management (PCLM) is set of processes which manage end-user devices transforming desktops from procurement to sunset. A well developed methodology will cover all aspects of architecture, procurement, management and decommissioning of end user devices.
Transforming desktops is a multi-faceted process. To start, you need to get a hold of your existing desktop service inventory applications.
In supporting increasing needs for agility in a world driven by the increasing consumerization of IT (CoIT), desktop transformation can no longer be seen as an infrequent process. To quickly deliver change, you need to best understand what the impact of that change is. Auditing should be continuous as seasonal or limited use applications that may be missed through manual processes will be identified and flagged as they occur.
