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

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 l.jpg

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)

Common Toolsets/Resources

  • Plan

    • Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor

      • Can my PC/devices/software upgrade to Win7

    • Assessment and Planning Toolkit (MAP) (blog)

      • Can PCs/devices/software on my network upgrade to Win7 (agentless) (video demo) Sample reports

    • Application Compatibility Toolkit (ACT) (blog)

    • Application Compatibility List

    • Volume Activation Planning Guide

  • Deploy

    • Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT) (blog)

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 l.jpg

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 l.jpg

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 l.jpg

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)
