Windows 7 migrations: An industry view of enterprise application compatibility
As more and more businesses move forward and embrace Windows 7, many are finding their migration path blocked by compatibility challenges.

Windows 7 has been available to the enterprise for 2 years. Many organisations have now made the move, and common challenges have been identified. This ChangeBASE white paper discusses the application compatibility challenges that lie ahead for those who haven't yet migrated to Windows 7, allowing them to benefit from the experiences of early adopters.
