7 Traditional Dell “Companies are weary of long engagements that last for six months and the end result is a PowerPoint with a bunch of meaningless platitudes. What I like about [Dell's services] is that there is an emphasis on consulting engagements that are short in duration and the recommendations are useful and actionable."

9 Application compatibility will continue to be one of the main planning factors in any Windows 7 migration "Moving from XP to Windows 7 is not a magic bullet…you have the same level of application compatibility from XP to Windows Vista or Windows 7" Gavriella Schuster - Microsoft "Moving from XP to Windows 7 is not a magic bullet…you have the same level of application compatibility from XP to Windows Vista or Windows 7" Gavriella Schuster - Microsoft “It will essentially be about as painful for customers to move from XP to Vista as it will be to move from XP to Windows 7” Al Gillen – IDC “It will essentially be about as painful for customers to move from XP to Vista as it will be to move from XP to Windows 7” Al Gillen – IDC “90% of Enterprise customers concerns about Win 7 adoption cite software compatibility” Gartner, 2009 “90% of Enterprise customers concerns about Win 7 adoption cite software compatibility” Gartner, 2009 Application Compatibility

11 Dell Software Inventory & Usage (SUIM) Dell Application Compatibility Reporting (ACR)

12 GREEN – Application is compatible with Windows 7 AMBER – Application requires some level of remediation or packaging RED – Application is incompatible with Windows 7. Consider alternative deployment methods. DELL CONFIDENTIAL Application Compatibility MIGRATE APPLICATIONS TO WINDOWS 7 OFFERS Windows 7 MSI Packaging Application Compatibility Reporting (ACR) Application Remediation Application Sequencing (App-V) Client Hosted Virtualisation (Med-V)

13 Application Compatibility Reporting DETERMINES AN APPLICATION PORTFOLIOS COMPATIBILITY WITH WINDOWS 7 – Uses both automated and manual processes for highest degree of accuracy – Determines installation and functional characteristics of each application – Supports MSI packaged and unpackaged applications – Either feeds directly into remediation/packaging or provides detailed remediation recommendations

27 Migrating Apps to Windows 7 Application Inventory Prioritize the Apps Run Application Compatibility Test

28 Vista In our testing Windows Vista compatible applications are 98% compatible with Windows 7. Applications will require re-testing. XP Must test 100% of application portfolio Migrating from XP to Windows 7 is the same as XP to Windows Vista Migrating Apps to Windows 7

36 What do we with RED Apps? Yes, If it runs in earlier versions of Windows Server No, If is delivered through Server 2008 and newer. Upgrade to Newer Versions if possible. Rewrite the Code Migrate the application to.Net Framework Partial Yes and NoAnswer is No Does Virtualisation with App-V or ThinApp resolve the Problem? Is Virtual Desktop do the trick?
