ThinkVantage™ Technologies brings your IBM PCs one step closer to being self-configured, self-optimizing, self-protecting, and self-healing to help save you time and money throughout the life of your systems. In short, ThinkVantage Technologies let you focus your attention on your business, rather than on your computer.

ThinkVantage Technologies are software tools designed to help clients drive down IT support costs (especially those associated with managing and supporting systems after initial roll-out), increase security, and decrease the complexity of today’s IT infrastructure.
