Migration to Microsoft Windows 7 and Office 2010 involves moving all or part of the enterprise to new Operating Systems (OSs) that promise longer support time frames, greater efficiency and ease of use. Enterprises are concerned with how to best migrate their OSs, some from Windows Vista and others from the earlier release, Windows XP. They are bound to be confronted by a host of challenges, as well as some degree of risk. Issues such as software compatibility, licensing agreements and Service-Level Agreements (SLAs) move to the fore. However, Gartner research highlights opportunities for change, ways to improve the client-computing environment and steps to minimize risk.
