Assist Ltd. and Futurestate IT Inc. will be hosting a joint webinar on February 8, 2012, titled “Best Practices: Developing a Simplified Approach to Windows 7 Migration”. Migrating to Windows 7 is a time consuming, costly, and potentially high-risk project for any organization. This webinar will cover the challenges associated with these projects. Many of these challenges have caused organizations to delay their migration projects, as they wait for and evaluate strategies and solutions to ease this transition. Topics to be covered during the webinar include:

  •     The risk associated with not migrating to the latest available OS
  •     How to quickly assess your application portfolio and identify cost, time, and resources required for your Windows migration project
  •     How to minimize risk associated with application compatibility
  •     How to leverage the expertise and experience available from people who have “been there, done that”
  •     How to save time, resource and cost, while lowering your risk
