Key considerations l.jpg
Key Considerations

  • Volume Licensing (VL) strategy - Microsoft policy requires the activation of all editions of Windows 7, including those obtained through a VL program

  • Windows 7: 32-bit or 64-bit – What O/S will your applications work with best

  • Deployment method. Mass rollout, slow rollout, or just install on new machines through PC lifecycle replacement?

  • Deployment tools - Microsoft has some nice tools to help with a Windows 7 migration.

  • Windows XP Mode – Requires the Virtual PC image kept up to date with security patches etc.

Key Considerations (cont’d)

  • Training - technicians and end users will require training

  • XP support - 2014 was the original end of life date for XP. Lessons learned - Leverage your XP migration project documentation.

  • In-House applications - Coordination between desktop support group and application development to ensure applications work with new operating system.

  • Resources - Use Gartner Research for project costing and scheduling.
