New resources to help business deploy to Windows 7
For the past few months, I’ve been traveling to many corners of the world visiting customers large and small.  Everywhere I went, I continued to be humbled by the overall positive feedback IT professionals gave me on the value of Windows 7 to their organization. That said, IT professionals also told me they need a thoughtful and strategic plan for how they roll out any new technology within their organizations, including Windows 7 and Office 2010. I also heard they need a tangible way to evaluate the technology’s business value in light of today’s continued economic realities. Additionally, they said they need to have a centralized way to easily manage their desktop infrastructure particularly as they are also evaluating technologies that will help them optimize their desktops such as Office 2010, Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V) and Internet Explorer 8.
In response to this feedback we’ve created some new partner and self-service resources to help organizations assess business value and build a plan for deploying a modern desktop environment with Windows 7 Enterprise, Microsoft App-V, Internet Explorer 8 and Office 2010 Professional Plus. Here’s an overview of these resources:
You can also read more about companies that have moved through the proof of concept and pilot phases and can learn from their experiences. Sanofi-aventis, one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world, and O2 Ireland, a mobile phone service provider, both provide good best practice stories and you can read more in their case studies.
If you are considering deploying Windows 7, I would encourage you to take advantage of this new deployment program and learn for yourself what the combination of Windows 7 Enterprise, Office Professional Plus 2010, App-V or Internet Explorer 8 can mean for you. I highly encourage you to learn more about new deployment program options by visiting the Windows Enterprise site. If you want to start to kick the tires yourself, we have packaged guidance and resources to help you to build a technical proof of concept as a new area on our Springboard Series on TechNet, available today.
