Thin Clients in Charitable Organizations

Jul 6th 2015 at 3:11 AM

Charitable organizations that offer residential groups for people in need of assistance face a variety of challenges. In order to pursue their goal of inclusion and cope with the decentralization this entails, efficient thin clients or zero clients are used in many residential groups and in management.

Decentralization increases the number of IT workstations

With the help of robust and reliable thin clients, personnel within the residential groups can access the organization's centralized IT infrastructure at any time. Thin clients are also very energy-efficient and more environmentally friendly than PCs because they have fewer components – they merely establish a connection to the computer center. Employees operate the applications that run there via the thin clients as secure access devices.

Converting existing hardware into thin clients

In order to achieve this inclusion, there are more and more decentralized residential groups which, with the help of the thin clients, can be connected to the centralized IT applications in a cost-effective manner. In order to reduce costs, existing PCs can be converted into thin clients, for example with the help of the IGEL Universal Desktop Converter 2 thin client software (UDC2). Even notebooks can become mobile thin clients and taken spontaneously into a meeting room for example. The connection to the computer center is then established via WLAN.

Thin clients offer a high level of security

The higher level of security is another argument in favor of thin clients in charitable organizations. The devices can easily be secured against unauthorized access. The thin client's USB ports must be enabled by the administrator prior to use. Furthermore, users themselves cannot install any software on the thin clients. Last but not least, thin clients and zero clients are not worth stealing because they cannot be used without a centralized IT infrastructure.

Centralized management reduces operating costs

The greatest advantage of thin clients lies in centralized management. In the case of thin clients from IGEL Technology, virtually all settings can be configured remotely via the network. To ensure that, where possible, no administrative tasks at all are carried out locally on the thin clients, IGEL supplies the Universal Management Suite (UMS) remote management solution along with the UDC2 software and all physical thin clients and zero clients. This makes the thin clients a particularly cost-effective solution for charitable organizations.
