A Comparative Analysis of Total Cost of Ownership Between GMS and Non-GMS Enterprise Devices
This whitepaper aims to explore and highlight the key distinctions between Android Open-Source Project (AOSP) and Google Mobile Services (GMS) devices. The primary focus of exploration is on their impact on the total cost of ownership (TCO) in an enterprise setting across key aspects, including security, flexibility, productivity, sustainability, & the ecosystem. While AOSP devices offer a baseline open-source platform, GMS devices may provide a more comprehensive and user-friendly experience through the integration of Google’s widely used applications. The inclusion of GMS in enterprise devices can positively influence productivity, collaboration, and overall user satisfaction. The whitepaper concludes by establishing a comprehensive framework for TCO calculation and facilitating a comparative analysis of AOSP and GMS devices, factoring in the various costs involved throughout the device’s lifetime.
