A recent report from Gartner shows that despite the time and cost involved in migrating to the newer versions of Windows or Office there is little payback in total cost of ownership (TCO) savings. Costs will also be higher if some upgrades have been skipped. For example, the cost of moving to Windows 7 will be higher for companies who have not deployed Windows Vista and are moving direct from Windows XP, as more remediation and testing will be needed.
By contrast, incorporating VMware View and ThinApp into the migration process for Windows 7, delivers significant benefits:
- Up to 50% reduction in cost of migration
- Time to upgrade cut by half
- Ongoing operational costs as much as a 40% lower
It also delivers a huge range of strategic advantages, which will help to make your organization more lean and competitive going forward.
