Assured Windows Migration Avoids April 2014 Pain
Chicago, Illinois, March 25, 2013. Olenick & Associates today announces its Assured Windows Migration solution.
About half of all PCs are now running an outdated or “end of life” Windows desktop OS, posing a global technology challenge that cannot be ignored. With Assured Windows Migration, organizations running obsolete versions of Windows can minimize risk while migrating to Windows 7 or 8.
Windows migration is a high-visibility project for any organization with a large PC fleet. President Tom Olenick noted, “Microsoft’s enterprise support for Windows XP will cease on April 8, 2014, so the clock is ticking. CIOs and IT managers now face a stark choice: migrate their desktop fleet or face escalating support costs that could easily mean six figures per year for a large IT organization. We’ve applied our Assured Windows Migration solution to over 40,000 PCs. We don’t just install a new version of Windows—this is a complete solution that improves IT infrastructure, positioning our clients for effective cloud and mobile integration.”
Assured Windows Migration is a defined and proven methodology using five key processes: survey, evaluation, packaging, rollout, and support. Olenick & Associates’ core strength in testing and quality assurance is an integral part of each process, unlike purely technical approaches.
According to Assured Windows Migration practice leader Bill Mertes, “The combination of our process and expertise in testing, packaging, project management and test automation means Assured Windows Migration can dramatically improve the quality of the delivered desktop. Deployments will simply go smoother with our assistance.”
