Maximizing Productivity for Technical Professionals

The Need for Advanced Technology for Technical Professionals
In many organizations, the work of engineers, designers and data analysts is the starting point for organizational success. The speed at which these technical professionals can complete their tasks may dictate the overall speed of the organization. And so the tools they use matter. Next-generation hardware and software products provide substantially better performance, offering the potential for major productivity gains.

New devices and software are enhancing productivity for the technical professional in two important ways. First, more powerful and capable devices reduce unproductive time. Second, they drive dramatic improvement in collaboration among teams and project-based groups, which are often a large part of the technical professional’s workday.

Next-Generation Technology Enables Productivity Gains for the Technical Professional
Recent advances in both hardware and software have resulted in the requisite performance for productivity gains. A simple calculation illustrates the point: With increased performance, a technical professional can reduce wait time or time spent on unproductive tasks by 30 minutes per day. In the course of a year, this results in organizations gaining back more than three weeks of productive time. New software for workstations extends the performance gains by increasing the amount of addressable memory and multiple CPUs.

Many other advances enable improved performance. Persistent memory delivers the fastest data storage possible and keeps information available when a system is shut down. There are also new features for reducing the time to download files from servers. As security dictates more data being stored remotely, making remote storage perform like local storage eliminates a lot of wait time. Another way to avoid wasting productive time is eliminating recovery time for corrupted files and data, a capability available in the latest software.

Yet, more gains are possible. With new devices that deliver uncompromised power in a mobile form factor, out-of-office time can now be much more productive. Mobile workstation products are now on par with their stationary counterparts, including support for the same broad range of peripherals, such as multiple monitor setups.

The second critical key to increasing the productivity of technical professionals is to enhance and improve collaboration. When project teams work more effectively, every member of the team is more productive. In making collaboration more productive, new hardware and software deliver a number of benefits. The starting point is making the network connections that are essential to collaboration seamless and less demanding of user intervention. Next is the ability to more effectively share information and files. This includes both simplifying file transfer and improving the speed of sending and receiving data from others or remote servers. Improving security functionality allows technical professionals to focus on their work rather than running security tools. Built-in security means users no longer have to jump through hoops to collaborate.

Lenovo and Intel Enable Technical Professionals to Do More Now
The next-generation Lenovo devices powered by Intel® processors are built to support the demanding workloads of technical professionals. New Intel-based Lenovo workstations raise the bar for technical computing by delivering even more power, performance and utility than older desktop systems provided, including extremely large physical memory, multiple CPUs and blazing-fast graphics subsystems.
