IT organizations are on the brink of a new wave of desktop transformation, with Windows 7 operating system (OS) migrations a critical stop on the journey. These OS migrations are extremely complex and pose real risks in terms of end user downtime, business interruptions, and increased costs. IT needs to ensure migration projects go quickly and smoothly, and that the resulting user environment becomes easier to access and manage.

For most companies, Windows 7 migrations are part of an enterprise-wide desktop evolution that may include any combination of desktop virtualization, server-based computing and application virtualization. With this in mind, businesses can benefit from using a Windows 7 project as an opportunity to re-examine strategies and solutions for ongoing desktop and user management. By taking advantage of RES Workspace Manager and RES Baseline Desktop Analyzer, not only can organizations ensure a relatively rapid, pain-free and successful transition to Windows 7, but they can also enhance the end-user experience and enable simpler desktop transformations in the future.

Windows 7 migrations conducted today can, in fact, be designed to greatly ease the pathway of future migrations. Windows 8, for example, is not far away; and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) initiatives may be expanding in the future as well.
