Google Cloud Next event is just around the corner, and we couldn't be more excited! In preparation for the Apps Admin Pop-Up Shop within the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, Here’s a run-down of everything you need to know about the Chrome devices you can get your hands on this Summer.
According to recent statistics revealed in 2017, during 2018, around 5.5% of all the PC devices sold will be Chrome-based solutions. This means that Chrome may have officially surpassed Linux as the ultimate OS for enterprise facilities. Not only are Chrome devices easy to use, versatile, and adaptable, but they're also secure, and low-cost too - perfect for those who don't want to compromise on performance due to a low budget. From Chromebooks to Chrome boxes there are many incredible reasons for organizations from every vertical to add these solutions to their company arsenal. For example:
When Google announced they would be releasing their very own OS alongside a range of incredible devices to support and enhance the enterprise world, critics didn't think that the Google solution would ever come close to Linux and Windows in terms of popularity. Now, of course, more companies are starting to tap into the benefits of these simple, accessible, and lightweight devices than ever before.
There's a good chance you're already familiar with the concept of "Chrome". Chrome is one of the most popular web browsers on the market today, developed by the incredible technology giant - Google. Chrome devices, on the other hand, are hardware solutions made for work, that tap into the vast selection of unique cloud-based services and apps that Google has to offer.
Chrome OS by Google is an incredible open-source operating system created by Google and based on the Linux OS. The operating system was inspired by the success of the Chrome web browser, and it's designed as a platform that connects users to their data and applications within the cloud.
For a Chrome Device Admin, what's worse than KFC running out of chicken? Yup, you guessed it, Chrome OS having no available new devices to bring to the marketplace this spring. Things seem a little slower than normal for Chrome devices this year. While it's safe to say that the devices that already exist in the Chrome portfolio are impressive, they're just not enough to highlight the latest features and fantastic updates that Google's Chrome Operating System has to offer.
Chrome is by far one of the most effective, popular, and efficient cloud-connected solutions and browsers in the world. That's why so many enterprises embrace the Google framework when preparing for digital transformation. With chrome, business devices can access a new generation of solutions for a range of workflows. From improving collaboration between staff members with video conferencing, to improving customer experience with digital signage, there's plenty of ways for a retailer business to empower itself.
The Chromebit has been described as a 'computer on a stick' - an apt description for a pocket-sized device that’s less than 5 inches long. It’s not the only computer you’ll ever need. It’s not even the only Chrome OS device you’ll ever need. But it does have its uses.
Using a Chromebit for digital signage requires some hardware and a process with several steps. Once the configuration is complete, making changes to the signage content is nearly trivial.
