As indicated in the table above, the City owns 2,086 PCs and hand held devices. These include desktops, notebooks, tablets, smart phones, public safety computers, public kiosks and public workstations. There are 10 different vendors supplying devices to the city. They include Dell, Apple, Compaq, Gateway, Hewlett Packard, Lenovo, Panasonic, Data 911, Microsoft, and Samsung. With the City’s approximately 1,500 employees the ratio of devices to employees is 1.39 to 1. The findings result in the following conclusions:  There are too many device vendors to provide timely and cost effective logistics, support and maintenance.  Many field workers such as maintenance folks do not require a computing device so the ratio of devices is skewed but illustrates the abundance of computing power.  Special requirements dictate certain devices, as with police and fire laptops.
