Session

  • Who I am
  • Goals
    • High-level education on adoption trends and resources (with links for follow-on)
    • Discussion about what others are doing around Windows 7 deployment
    • Get stumped by good questions
  • Non-goals
    • Convince anyone to deploy Win7
    • Show all of my slides
    • Contradict what someone else from Microsoft is telling you
slide3

Agenda

  • Session goals/non-goals
  • Why I have seen customers move [to Windows 7]
  • Common toolsets, resources
  • Customer examples
    • Plan (2)
    • Adopt (1)
    • Grow (1)
  • Additional Resources
slide4

Why I’ve seen customers move

  • Their end-users want Windows 7
  • XP 9+ years old, poor Vista adoption
  • Reduce IT costs:
    • Simplify ecosystem (BitLocker, AppLocker, BranchCache, DirectAccess, . . .)
    • More automation (WIM, USMT, better tool-support, GPO capabilities)
  • Compatibility
    • HW support
    • XP-Mode –vs- MED-V
    • (IE8)
slide5

Customer 1 (Plan)

  • Environment
    • 95%+ Windows XP
    • Multiple, autonomous locations
    • Mature IT processes
  • Approach
    • Small pilot group (no mainstream DIY)
    • Evangelize with user-base (parties, cake, …)
    • Build image for supply to OEM
    • Initial mainstream push through HW refresh
    • Leverage Microsoft benefits, partner POCs
  • Progress
    • Pilot users happy, and slowly growing
    • Image targeting Q3 CY2010
  • Bumps
    • Early-cycle
    • Learnings, as they simplify their image
    • Other projects
    • IE8
slide7

Customer 2 (Plan)

  • Environment
    • 95%+ Windows XP
    • 5% Macintosh
    • Decentralized
    • Less IT standardization
  • Approach
    • Multiple pilots across organization
    • Centralized planning project, with some cross-organization collaboration
    • Leverage Microsoft benefits
  • Progress
    • Win7 population growing
    • Official decision pending
    • User-education pending
  • Bumps
    • Other projects
    • Multiple organizations == multiple efforts
    • Application Compatibility: More difficult to collect, analyze, and remediate across organizations
    • Gaps in end-user education (MSFT pending)
slide8

Customer 3 (Adopt)

  • Environment
    • 90%+ Windows XP
    • 5% Windows Vista
    • Huge developer population
  • Approach
    • DIY pre-RTM
    • IT provided early-cycle access to standardized ISO (network drive)
    • Leverage Microsoft programs, Microsoft benefits, partner
    • Thin image built, with new capabilities being added in-cycle (apps, DA, …)
    • Grow pilot through group-level opt-in
  • Progress
    • 8%+ pre-RTM adoption
    • 20%+ currently on RTM
    • Case study in-progress
  • Bumps
    • Other projects
    • Localization
    • Application Compatibility not fully collected yet
slide9

Customer 4 (Grow)

  • Environment
    • 80% Windows XP
    • 20% Windows Vista
  • Approach
    • Aggressive
    • Pre-RTM pilot
    • Corporate image ready RTM+30
    • Huge DIY adoption
    • Advertised push
    • IT-touch == Win7 upgrade
  • Progress
    • 20% by RTM+90
    • Growth eventually stabilized to 3%/month
    • Currently 40%+
  • Bumps
    • Very Early-cycle (deployment tool bugs, made friends with MSFT developers/testers)
    • IE8 not a showstopper (Terminal Services/Citrix)
