Migrate to Windows 7

Managing multiple desktops in a fast-paced business environment can be a hassle. Companies are increasingly relying on employee desktops and laptops to perform their day-to-day tasks and Bring-Your-Own-Device policies further expand the reliance on personalized units to complete work assignments. As a result individual devices need to be patched and updated accordingly in order to ensure continued performance and support. This puts a tremendous strain on IT departments as resources for desktop/laptop management soar in terms of staff and expenses. Running on older and multiple versions of Windows, particularly Windows XP, poses additional business and IT risks.

 

The Risks

  • Necessity Windows XP extended support is scheduled to end no later than April, 2014. Companies that have not begun migration consultations are at risk of falling behind
  • Operations Running on Windows XP leaves an enterprise two/three generations behind current OS standards depriving business operations of increased efficiency, additional functionalities and new capabilities
  • Resources Research and studies show that the older a PC gets the higher the resources needed for it to be kept operational
  • Security Companies still using Windows XP experience higher IT security risks, as well as difficulties providing continued technical support for older PCs (Windows 7 experiences 20% less malware and virus attacks)
  • Compliance The end of extended Windows XP support means that companies will no longer be able to satisfy compliance requirements such as regular patching

 

The Solution: Standardize and Virtualize

Migrating away from Windows XP is a must for businesses and can be a difficult challenge to tackle. However, having to migrate to Windows 7 presents companies with a unique opportunity not only to upgrade to a better OS but to increase efficiency and save on cost by virtualizing the desktop environment with VMware View.

The combined benefits of running operations on standardized Windows 7 across devices and virtualizing the desktop environment ensure a worthwhile investment that realizes lower long term costs, increased security, improved employee productivity and smoother IT operations.

Deploying a market-leading desktop virtualization software like VMware View ensures fast and seamless migration to Windows 7 and a strategic business advantage.
