Don’t just migrate. Accelerate! Windows 7 and Windows 8 migration Jefferson Raley Portfolio Director, End User Computing Strategic Consulting Practice 2013
The time to migrate is now Problem Windows XP SP3 support ends April 8, 2014 38% of PCs are still on XP No more patches or bug fixes Costly $250/PC/YR for custom support from Microsoft “It’s absolute gold dust to an attacker because they’ll know that any vulnerabilities will be zero-days for you.” - Rik Ferguson, global VP security research at Trend Micro Solution 2013 • Dell Windows Migration Services • Dell Deployment Services • Dell infrastructure hardware and software
What we’re hearing from customers “We just don’t have enough resources to hit the April 2014 deadline in all of our locations” 2013 “Our migration is on the way, but it’s stalled and we need to evaluate why” “We have to get our hands around all our applications – we’re spending unnecessarily on software licenses” “We’re not getting the most out of the automation software we have” “We’re very concerned about training the workforce on a new OS”
