Broadcast Windows 7 may be Microsoft's fastest selling OS, but some of the larger scale roll outs have started only recently. Rev 1 teething problems, combined with the effects of a slump, fuelled the initial caution.

But with many of you set to cut your teeth on this OS refresh, we have pulled some experts into our studio to give you a bit of help. So make sure to put the 2 June at 11am BST (12pm CEST) in your diary for this spectacular.

Tim Phillips is running the show with a little help from our friend Dale Vile from the analyst firm Freeform Dynamics. Joining them are Gavin Bell from Computacenter and Will Westwick, head of workplace at BskyB, who recently kicked off a Win 7 migration at Sky. He’s also done some serious OS migrations at some ‘major’ British retailers so he knows his OS upgrade path like the back of his hand.

Our panel will explore how to move into the deployment phase, explain the drivers behind the deployment schedule, hold your hand through the deployment choices and point you in the direction of some migration tools. Will himself will give you a run through the lessons he’s learned from his OS upgrade projects and take you through some of his top tips for success.

For any of you planning such a move, this should be just the fillip. You can register right here for free.
