Executive Summary

Enterprise IT departments are quickly embracing the Microsoft Windows 7 OS: in a recent survey, 87 percent of organizations said that they plan to deploy Windows 7, and almost half do not plan to wait for Service Pack 1 before rolling it out.1 Because Microsoft does not support in-place upgrades of Windows XP to Windows 7, however, the migration can pose a daunting challenge for organizations that bypassed the Windows Vista OS and continued running Windows XP, but still need a means to execute clean installations of Windows 7 while retaining critical data. The migration can pose an even larger challenge for midsize organizations, which may need to carry it out with limited staff and financial resources.
