Now is the time to move to Windows 7® or Windows 8®
Whether you need help getting started, or you discover roadblocks during the migration process, we can help you move your workforce to a modern operating system with Dell Services.

Windows XP support officially ends on April 8, 2014. Any XP machines left on your network will expose you to tremendous security risk and escalating costs.

Dell experts can help make your transition rapid, easy and hassle free.

Windows Migration Services

Dell’s holistic approach to migration can help at any stage of your journey from planning, to migration and education services. As Microsoft’s #1 Windows 7 deployment partner, Dell has developed unique tools and proven practices to ensure readiness and a cost effective migration.

At Dell we believe that the secret of an efficient Windows migration is application, hardware, and deployment readiness.
  • Prepare for Windows 7 or Windows 8 by inventory and compatibility testing applications. Identify all of the hardware, and determine what must be replaced and what can be upgraded. Where are you in the journey?
  • Automate the migration process including the base image, OS settings, applications, user data migration, domain join, encryption and all other steps in the PC build process. The goal is to reduce, or eliminate, the need for hands-on technicians, and even enable users to migrate themselves. 
  • Implement track device readiness, application readiness and user change management throughout the migration schedule. Dell’s cloud-based Client Deployment Manager helps track and manage the migration.
  • Educate your workforce to thrive on the new system.
