3 Key Topics Attitudes about migrating Manpower requirements Preparing for the migration General recommendations Results of the migration 3

4 4 Attitudes About Migrating

5 Timing and Motivations Typically wait six to 12 months Only 8% migrate immediately Performance, reliability and end-user experience motivated migration Most (62%) set ROI goals 90% met ROI goals 5

6 6 Manpower Requirements

7 Manpower requirements Typically involve half of IT staff Most automated the process 10 PCs worth automating Time consuming aspects: – Planning (17%) – Actual execution of upgrade (12%) – Reinstalling applications (10%) – Inventorying existing machines (10%) – Running pilot tests (9%) 7

8 8 Preparing for the Migration

9 Before the migration What to capture beforehand – User files & documents – Links to network drives – RAM, processor speed, PC age, budget important 10 IT man-hours in preparation 9

10 Hardware recommendations CPU – Minimum: 2 to 2.5 GHz – Optimal: 2.5 to 3 GHz RAM – Minimum: 2 GB – Optimal: 4 GB Storage – Minimum: 200 to 500 GB – Optimal: 500 GB to 1 TB Video RAM – Minimum: 512 MB – Optimal: 1 GB or more 10

11 11 General Recommendations

12 General recommendations Standardization, added security, and virtual desktop 71% replace incompatible applications 12

13 Ensuring success / Easing the process Planning Training Pilot tests 13

14 14 Results of the Migration

15 Results of the migration 78% said process was smooth 63% said easier than last migration Most achieved key motivations Most ran into delays End-user satisfaction increased over time 15

16 Best vs. Worst Practices in Information Management Users offline 2 hours 60% of users extremely satisfied Differences 20 IT man-hours in preparation Extremely important: – Advanced planning (56% ) – Upgrading hardware (45%) – Pilot test (45%) – Training (44%) – Capture user profiles (42%) – Proper inventory (35%) Users offline 6 hours 25% of users extremely satisfied Differences 9 IT man-hours in preparation Extremely important: – Advanced planning (30% ) – Upgrading hardware (31%) – Pilot test (34%) – Training (26%) – Capture user profiles (27%) – Proper inventory (24%) Top tier resultsBottom tier results
