With XP support sunsetting, customers are concerned about data migration, hardware limitations, compatibility and integration of existing applications and licensing issues associated with upgrading to Windows 7.

  • Application compatibility, testing, remediation, and packaging for the new OS
  • Concerns regarding when and how to effectively transition corporate images to Windows 7
  • Conducting overall Windows 7 readiness assessments
  • Best practices for deploying new systems and/or upgrading in-place systems, once the commitment to move to Windows 7 has been made
