Samsung for Business
Over the past 18 months the demands on the IT industry have never been greater especially in client computing. The global pandemic has caused much disruption, forcing organisations to accommodate changes to their previous ways of working at unprecedented speeds.
The adoption of hybrid and remote working patterns have driven the need for more robust and agile infrastructures, supported by device requirements that enable ‘anytime, anywhere’ working, be that an office desk, coffee table or kitchen worktop. Whilst supply chains stood up well initially, they soon started to creek and even the well-established IT hardware providers started to struggle with inventory shortages.
There has been at least one piece of good news throughout all these disruptions, the re-introduction of Samsung to the mobile computing market, which in turn has added further weight to their business portfolio.
Samsung now boasts a comprehensive range of Galaxy Book laptop products from their Entry-Level Galaxy Book Go, to their High-End Galaxy Book 360. Acknowledging changes to the business world, along with increased user demand, has led to Samsung not rigidly following the well-trodden ‘Wintel’ path. They do offer some stunning designs based on Intel’s EVO based platform but have also introduced both Chromebooks and Qualcomm CPU based devices.
We shouldn’t be surprised that Samsung have launched such a complete range of laptop devices based on their market leading heritage in the mobile phone and tablet space. Similar to their approach with mobile phones and tablets you won’t be surprised to read that their laptops feature the latest technologoies such as AMOLED displays, Integrated 5G, WiFi 6E, as well as being thin and light in design, yet maintaining all the durability features required of a business class device.
Samsung have wisely followed other manufacturers lead in terms of their Eco system integration. Their computing range connects seamlessly to other Galaxy devices, smartphones and tablets and offers some great features for example the use of Samsung tablet as a secondary display for the laptop as well as shared accessories such as S-Pen and the ability to charge Galaxy Smartphones and tablets via an inbuilt USB-C charging facility of the Laptop.
With today’s constrained product market, we should also mention that Samsung’s supply chain management and control around their design, manufacturing and logistics processes unsurprisingly also applies to their business computing devices. This should hopefully ensure that committed inbound device shipments arrive as planned and on schedule.
When you consider Samsung’s already significant footprint with Enterprise variants of their Smartphones and tablet devices, which are under pinned by their KNOX Secure, Deploy and Manage software suite and business class support, the addition of these new Computing products really does elevate their position in the corporate and SMB marketplace.
When it’s time for organisations to review their mobile compute platforms it’s worth including Samsung in for consideration and assess the benefits they could offer.
