planning to move to windows 7 migration isn t the only consideration today

How do I manage costs?

How do I take advantageof virtualisation?

Planning to move to Windows 7 ?Migration isn’t the only consideration today

How do I keep mydata safe andapplications secure?

Should we go withRich Clients orThin Clients?

Should employeesbring their ownPCs for work?

Should I embracecloud services?

How do I keepmy mobile users productive?

the need for a desktop strategy the desktop is more than just an operating system
The Need for a Desktop Strategy The desktop is more than just an Operating System

Data & User Settings Considerations

  • Application Considerations

Primary Desktop Challenge:

PC Components are bound together, making hardware & software difficult & expensive to replace

  • Solution:
  • Remove the hard wired dependencies and consider the layers independently

Data & Settings

  • Hardware Considerations



Will consumer devices be allowed on your network?

How will you support mobile devices?


How will users access data from different PCs?

How will you provide data security on all devices?

Is data searchable across PCs, local networks & the cloud?

Do you know how many applications you have?

How will you manage the application lifecycle?

How will you manage the hardware lifecycle?

How will you provide access from anywhere?

  • Operating System Considerations

How will you handle migration?

How many images will you need to maintain?

How can users get to their environment from other PCs?
