For a variety of reasons, this manufacturing firm had determined that upgrading the user desktops to the Windows 7 operating system would be in its best interest. However, dozens of applications are in use throughout the organization, and the organization was concerned about potential compatibility issues between Windows 7 and the application infrastructure.
Oakwood consultants conducted a Windows 7 Application Compatibility Factory engagement, which inventories, reviews, and tests every identified application for Windows 7 compatibility issues. If issues are found, remediation steps are identified as a part of the engagement.
The organization now has a detailed assessment report in which every application has been reviewed for Windows 7 compatibility. In this particular case, no remediation steps were determined to be necessary. The organization is using Microsoft Systems Center Configuration Manager to roll out new Windows 7 images to the entire user community.
