“IDC has a methodology for seeing how tools get deployed and what kind of impact they have, everything from new PCs being installed in law firms and businesses to new software in businesses,” Bob O’Donnell, vice president of clients and displays for IDC, said by phone Monday. “A lot of it has to do with asking people what are the tasks that they do, how long do those tasks typically take and was that time changed or shortened after that technology was deployed.” During this 10-week process, he said the company essentially measures time and dollars spent alongside activities. The report highlights Chromebooks as requiring approximately 69 percent less labor to install and 92 percent less labor to support than traditional PCs, reducing the need to hire additional IT staff.
