Windows 7 remains a popular OS in businesses around the globe. However, the world has changed significantly since its release in 2009. Attackers and threats such as malware and viruses have increased dramatically in both number and sophistication, more organizations are subject to compliance regulations, and strapped budgets are demanding more cohesive and centralized management. These new realities mandate a new OS specifically designed with today’s needs in mind, and Windows 10 fits the bill.
Before you even start a large system upgrade, you need to do your homework. Do you have in-house expertise to perform the work? Is the software compatible with your existing hardware? Will the software integrate with your existing applications? Do you have a Get Out of Jail FREE card (a complete system backup and restore plan) if the upgrade goes completely sideways? This talk will walk you through some of the important things to remember before you start a Windows 10 migration.
Topics included in this webinar include:
- Managing your users’ expectations.
- Taking inventory -- Paid solutions versus free solutions.
- Making the move from multiple point solutions to one unified endpoint management platform
- Minimum hardware requirements. Know when to say no.
- Software incompatibilities. What to do when you find one.
- Creating and deploying multiple images during and after your Win 10 migration.
- User data issues (because we know that they are still saving locally).
