So, it’s 2019 and you’re either planning for your company’s Windows 10 update for later this year or you’re right in the middle of the chaos. Often, the business picks a date and when they do, it always seems to be an unreasonable one. But nonetheless, it’s “The Date”.
Regardless of your situation, the questions from the business are:
- When will the project be completed?
- What progress has been made thus far?
- What you’re thinking is, “How fast can we go?” That’s the all-elusive question.
There are 4 factors to consider when answering this:
- Visibility – Insight into the application and data foot-print, hardware readiness assessment of the enterprise through discovery, inventory and reporting. Not only is the current state of endpoints known, but their end-state is predictable.
- Targeting – Accurately identifying the scope of machines that are ready for their Windows 10 deployments.
- Agility – Streamlining the infrastructure and accelerating deployments through P2P technology.
- Strategy – The goal here is to factor in the logistics, geography, and scheduling details to determine the ideal, most efficient, and convenient method for the user to deploy Windows 10.
Combining the data and information gathered from digging into these factors makes knowing how many OS migrations can be done in a day more accurate…and believable.
