Boost IT visibility and business value

Live broadcast At 11:00 BST today we have a studio full of experts discussing how to do a successful Windows 7 roll out.

Tim Phillips is running the show with a little help from our friend Dale Vile from analysts Freeform Dynamics. Joining this pair is Will Westwick, head of workplace at BskyB, who recently kicked off a Win 7 migration of some girth 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. His partner in crime, Gavin Bell from Computacenter, will join him.

Between the four of them, they’ll run us through 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 ticket.

You can join us free right here. Make sure you bring your questions along because this panel is fully primed to help you. ®
