Everyday more and more companies are making the move to Windows 7. This continues a trend that we saw slowly increase since the Windows 7 release in 2009. As this process has continued, Flexera Software has built up an impressive resume helping our clients make this migration a smooth and hassle-free process. This experience has taught us one valuable thing: companies can do more to minimize the trauma of migration.
Using AdminStudio as a corner stone for migration, Flexera Software augments this software product with a consulting and services know-how to create a full-featured migration solution. Operating system migration is one of the few IT events that touches the daily working experience of every employee. That level of change should not be taken lightly. While a move to Windows 7 and the increased productivity it boasts is attractive, it's not without certain risks.
Gartner recommends 12-18 months of effort to prepare for a Windows 7 migration and at a cost of $2000 to $3500 per application, moving to Windows 7 isn't going to be quick or cheap. Still there are things that you can do to keep the cost down and at the same time minimize the risk of migration. Flexera Software is offering a free on-demand webinar to assist you in maximizing the success of your Windows 7 migration.
