Migrating to Windows 7 is inevitable for IT organizations, despite whatever misgivings end users may have about losing the familiar look-and-feel of their desktops and having to learn new procedures designed to deliver new functionality. But this migration doesn’t have to be painful for users or their IT counterparts, and it doesn’t necessarily have to be a money sink. In fact, using desktop virtualization in concert with a Windows 7 migration can act as a launching pad for a more agile, efficient desktop architecture - one that is less expensive to maintain and less complex to manage. Organizations are working to migrate their desktops to Windows 7 before Microsoft’s 2013 deadline for withdrawal of Windows XP support.

This paper explains how adopting desktop virtualization can simplify the Windows 7 migration, and additionally reduce costs, improve efficiency and enhance security around the desktop infrastructure. It’s like “killing two birds with one stone.”
