Windows 8 migration services

Tailor your migration to your specific needs with end-to-end services, from Consulting Workshops and Application Compatibility Services to Optimized Deployment and Asset Recovery Services:

Dell Consulting Workshop. We start by learning about your environment and understanding your requirements. This includes helping you gather the information you need to make informed decisions about your choice of operating systems and new technologies — such as desktop virtualization, bring your own device (BYOD) and IT consumerization.

Managed Deployment Services. Rely on highly rated, certified project management professionals and expert deployment engineers to plan and launch your new Windows installation.

Application Inventory and Rationalization. To prepare for migration, you need to identify all the applications installed on your user devices. We help you create a compatibility testing strategy that reduces redundant licensing and helps you decide which applications to remove from your inventory.

Application Compatibility Reporting. Compatibility testing rarely completes without a hitch. We can help you remediate issues that surface during this process.

Image Management. You can eliminate a huge percentage of network deployment traffic with our specialized services. Create, test and manage your virtual and physical client images more efficiently with secure, 24x7 image management.

Optimized Deployment Services. Cut deployment time dramatically, track dispersed assets, distribute software and manage patches. You can save up to 55 percent of your deployment costs with the Dell™ Optimized Deployment Service Framework.

Dell ProSupport. Get the benefit of highly trained, in-region technical support 24x7.

Asset Recovery Services. Enlist our environmentally conscious approach to asset disposal.
