1E, the IT efficiency experts, detail a new, fully-automated, self-service model to achieve Windows XP to Windows 7/8.x migrations and drive down costs
New York and London – November X, 2013 – 1E, the global leader in IT efficiency software today announced a new eBook,“Zero-Touch Windows Migration,” which outlines the smartest, fastest way for IT teams to deliver new Operating Systems and migrate applications.
The eBook comes as Microsoft’s April 2014 End of Support deadline for Windows XP approaches. Companies who haven’t upgraded to Windows 7 or 8.x by this date face significant security risks and other dangers, though many struggle to identify an efficient and cost-effective way to migrate their users. 1E’s Zero Touch Migration enables late-mover organizations to not only complete their migration on time, but also as a Business-As-Usual activity, in the most cost-effective manner.
This eBook provides practical insight into how IT teams can take a zero-touch approach to a Windows migration with minimal user frustration or business disruption. This revolutionary new approach eliminates the vast majority of manual work and costly desk-side visits, while drastically improving speed and user satisfaction.
“Alternative methods for Windows migration involve an army of engineers and tens of thousands of desk-side visits for large enterprise organizations,” said 1E CEO Sumir Karayi. “Zero-Touch Windows Migration draws from lessons learned through our experience of helping many large organizations complete their Windows migrations, on time and to budget.”
“Together with 1E, for example, one organization was able to migrate 80,000 desktops, from Windows XP to Windows 7, in a little over three months, which we believe to be a record.”
The eBook, features hard lessons about large-scale application and OS migrations to enable IT teams to avoid obstacles and pitfalls, and will serve as a regular reference guide for companies looking for a solution to this looming issue.
Highlights from the eBook include:
- The two biggest challenges in any Windows migration
- The alternative options for overcoming each
- What a zero-touch solution looks like
- How to multiply your app and OS migration rate
