Windows 7-8 migration

Many businesses who thankfully, it appears in retrospect, skipped Vista are now considering upgrading their aging XP desktops to Windows 7 or 8. And while there are some crude tools from Microsoft to help with this transition, there are better choices from third-party vendors that can mass migrate desktops while preserving some of the existing user information. There are at least six different products that I have looked at, and here are links to my video or textual reviews so you can get a feel for them yourself. These reviews began in the fall of 2009 and continued up until April 2010 and were published on ITexpertVoice.com, a Dell-sponsored but otherwise independent editorial site focused on Windows 7 related issues.

In addition to these videos, I have done others directly for the vendors themselves on products that can be used to migrate desktops to Windows 7:

Here are a few different versions of various summary articles that I have written:

In addition to these reviews, I have also done a couple of podcasts/webinars on the topic. Here are links to these as well (and you can find copies of my slide decks here):

  • Webinar with Adam Kuhn, IT manager for American Public Power Network and Dell and Prowess product managers (April 2010)
  • Computer America podcast with Corey Holzman and Tim Taylor (April 2010)
  • Chicago Windows User Group (May 2010) — Download the CWUG slide deck here
  • Nashville AITP (July 2010)
  • St. Louis AITP (August 2010)
