Business Owners Are Consistently Purchasing the Wrong Hardware for Teams

Join ChannelBytes and ByteSpeed for a roundtable discussion on June 3 at 11 a.m. CST to learn what computer hardware is needed for business

​According to a Spiceworks report, businesses spend on average 22% of their total IT budgets on end-user hardware. This includes equipment such as desktops, laptops, mobile devices and more. However, the majority of these purchases are made without fully understanding the practical needs of teams.

To address this knowledge gap, ChannelBytes and ByteSpeed are teaming up to host a free roundtable discussion on June 3 at 11 a.m. CST. This session aims to empower tech leaders with the information needed to purchase the correct equipment, keep costs in check and get the most from their hardware.

“Hardware is ever-changing and both business owners and administrators are consistently fighting the same frustrating battle with new tech,” says Anna Hanson, Sales Director of ByteSpeed. “Leaders know they need to have the right hardware, but determining what those needs demand is often hard to quantify.”

Join ByteSpeed panelists Kevin Andrews, Senior Technical Engineer; Josh Knutson, Esports and VR Solutions Director; and Robert Ogan, Head of Servers and Infrastructure for an educational roundtable discussion focused on:

  • Questions tech leaders should be asking about hardware and which features are most important to consider
  • What different industries and specializations need to evaluate when shopping for new hardware
  • How to lower long-term acquisition and ownership costs

“Whether you’re competing in esports, running a creative department, or looking to setup an internal server rack, your technology needs to reflect specific use cases,” says Chris Lee, Co-Founder of ChannelBytes. “Buying workstations for sports leagues will only set up players for failure and using gaming hardware for rendering workstations hinders animators.”
