Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Webcast With Windows 7 ready to bite, the recession drawing to a close - maybe - and a certain optimism crossing the land, we’ll soon enter the season for desktop upgrades. But seriously, what’s the rationale for keeping an up-to-date desktop environment?

In our latest live webcast, on the 3rd November, 2009 at 11am, we tackle this challenge head on. The Lads from Freeform Dynamics are on hand to quote facts and figures from the latest Reg reader research and with host Tim Phillips they'll try to nail the value of an up-to-date desktop estate. Their topics?

  • What are the advantages, both in business and IT management terms, and what is the cost impact of an up-to-date desktop estate?
  • What capabilities are available in modern hardware, and how can they best be exploited?
  • What kind of reception can Windows 7 expect when it is launched, and what impact will it have?

They’ll also look at best practice for defining, deploying and managing upgrades. If you need help with anything specific, or just want to contribute your opinions, join us live and ask our hosts and your peers for their input..

By the time they're finished you should have a clear picture of the rationale for keeping an up-to-date desktop environment, the essentials of an approach for achieving it, and an understanding of how such principles apply to your organisations.
