Windows XP Migration
Many organizations skipped operating system upgrades when Microsoft Vista was released and the most prominent business operating system in companies today remains Windows XP.
With Windows XP support ending in 2014, you should have already started your migration to Windows 7 and / or Windows 8. During these projects, organizations can often find a high percentage of current applications are incompatible with the newer versions of Windows and this can present significant obstacle in already time-consuming and costly projects.
Whether you have started your migration or are already in progress, we can help you understand application and content usage to accelerate and reduce the costs of your migration project.
Our workspace profiling and analytics provides organizations with the deepest, richest insight into application, device and content usage. This enables the removal of unused applications from any migration project, typically resulting in significantly fewer compatibility issues, as high as 95% in some instances, as the table below highlights.
|Customer example||Total devices||Number of applications||Applications not Win7 compatible|
|Installed||Used||Based on install||Based on used|

Without understanding detailed usage, Windows XP migrations seem complex and time-consuming. By understanding usage, organizations can immediately to start to remove potential migration roadblocks and identify quick wins to the business, identifying those users, applications and devices that can be migrated with no remediation required.
For customers of Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager, we also provide capabilities to integrate our usage profiling directly into the SCCM interface, enabling companies to maximize their SCCM investment and significantly accelerate their desktop migration.
