The number of notebook PCs to be deployed.
(Range: 0-50,000)
The number of desktop PCs to be deployed.
(Range: 0-50,000)
The number of IoT computing endpoints to be deployed. Examples include digital signs, conference room PCs, and point of sale (POS) terminals such as kiosks, vending and ATMs.
(Range: 0-50,000)
Calculated total number of computing endpoints to be deployed.
(Range: 10-150,000)
Number of years that computing endpoints will be in use.
(Range: 3-10)
Number of operating system refreshes expected over the life cycle of computing endpoints.
(Range: 0 to once per year)
Average number of support incidents expected for each computing endpoint over the first year of deployment.
(Range: 2-12)
Estimated number of incidents over the life of all computing endpoints in this scenario.
Select “Yes” if computing endpoints will be customized with a corporate operating system image and/or corporate applications.
Select either small business (1 to 99 employees), medium business (100 to 499 employees), large business (500 to 999 employees) or very large business (1,000+ employees).
Employee hourly wages can be based on mature market industry averages or entered manually.
When choosing “Industry Averages”, employee labor costs are based on a specific industry selection.
The average hourly cost (salary + benefits) of an IT worker for the selected industry or entered manually.
(Range: $1 to $100 USD)
The average hourly cost (salary + benefits) of a full-time employee for the selected industry or entered manually
(Range: $1 to $100 USD).
The average hourly cost when an IoT device is out-of-service.
(Range: $10 to $1,000 USD)
Please note: The total number of notebooks, desktops and IoT computing endpoints must be 10 or greater.
The estimated life cycle cost of all computing endpoints deployed including hardware, deployment, and maintenance costs.
Estimated from endpoint costs and volume.

Notebook and desktop costs are based on an average of Intel® Core™ i5 and i7 processor-based systems sold worldwide during Q3 2017.

This tool estimates IoT hardware cost to be the midpoint between mobile and desktop price points.
Estimated from IT labor and logistics costs.

IT labor costs include planning, installation and configuration time.

Planning time increases with the size of the deployment.

Estimate assumes software installations for up to 10 systems at once.

Planning, installation and configuration time are increased for scenarios with a custom system image.

The Intel® vPro™ platform scenario assumes activation of Intel endpoint management features, thus increasing labor costs. Activation time scales with network complexity and is derived from company size input.

No other cost factors, such as software, are included in the estimate.
Estimated from Total Incident Cost and OS Refresh Cost.
Estimated from IT labor costs and productivity loss from endpoint downtime, whether from a PC user or an IoT device.

An algorithm estimates total incident count over the life of the deployment based on Year 1 user input. Incidents increase as the endpoints get older.

80% of incidents are assumed to be simple remote fixes.
20% of incidents are assumed to be complex, requiring on-site or service center repair.

IT costs are based on issue resolution time, whether the incident is simple or complex.

PC user downtime cost is based on issue resolution time for simple incidents. For a complex incident, productivity loss is based on the wait time to repair the issue, with worker productivity cut in half without a PC.

For IoT devices, downtime cost is estimated from user input and the wait time for issue resolution.

Wait time and resolution times for simple versus complex incidents are based on paid research.

Intel® vPro™ platform scenario assumes A) 10% incident reduction from efficient proactive maintenance and B) conversion of half the complex incidents into simple remote fixes due to utilization of Intel® Active Management Technology as well as acquiring systems supporting the Intel® Stable Image Platform Program.
Estimated from IT labor, logistics, and productivity loss from endpoint downtime.

IT labor costs include planning, installation and configuration time.

Planning, installation and configuration time are increased for scenarios with a custom system image.

Endpoint downtime is based on installation and configuration time with worker productivity cut in half without a PC and IoT devices impacted based on downtime cost entered into the tool.

Logistics costs are removed for Intel® vPro™ platform scenario which assumes efficient remote OS re-imaging. Without Intel® vPro™ platforms, systems are sent back to IT for re-imaging (assume software installation for up to 10 systems at once).

No other cost factors, such as software, are included in the estimate.
Indicates return on investment from selecting Intel® vPro™ platforms for this specific deployment. ROI is estimated by dividing Total Added Costs into TCO Savings.
Indicates the higher hardware and deployment costs for the Intel® vPro™ platform scenario.
Indicates the lower Total Cost of Ownership for the Intel® vPro™ platform scenario.
