Eden Technologies Presents "The Windows 7 Snowball Effect" Webinar Session
Eden Technologies is pleased to present the webinar, “The Windows 7 Snowball Effect - Managing Multiple IT Initiatives while Migrating to Windows 7” on Tuesday May 15, at 12 pm (EST).
What starts as a relatively straightforward OS migration to Windows 7 rapidly turns into a complex web of sub-projects, dependencies and changing priorities. Like a snowball rolling down hill, the Windows 7 project picks up mass and momentum as you get deeper into the planning.
“Many organizations haven’t migrated to a new OS since Windows XP, well over five years ago, and while some companies have continued to invest in upgrading desktops, many have held off, knowing that Windows 7 was around the corner,” said Susan Ergun, Director of Professional Services at Eden Technologies. “The time and resource investment in a project of this scale is significant. Organizations want to leverage costs and take advantage of newer technologies.”
“One of the great challenges our customers are facing is how to effectively manage their IT initiatives with minimal impact to the end user,” says Christie Cox, an Eden Engagement Director. “Server consolidations and/or virtualizations, changes to desktop security, upgrades to business critical applications, adoption of desktop management tools and upgrades to remote access solutions are some of the initiatives IT teams are managing. Each one of these projects is significant in scope and impact.”
This webinar is for anyone in the planning stages of a Windows 7 migration. Participants will benefit from the experiences of seasoned Engagement Directors Susan Ergun and Christie Cox, and founding partner Andrew Sweeney, who will pull from their 40+ years of combined client and project management engagements to share their experiences and tips on how to avoid being hit by the Windows 7 Snowball. Registration for this webinar is free at https://www3.gotomeeting.com/
