Since Microsoft no longer supports Windows 7, household users are now left with no other option but migrate to Windows 10. Fortunately, those that are part of business environments can opt for the Windows 7 Extended Support for Business.

However, this is merely a temporary solution, and it can become quite costly the more you choose to stick with it.

That is why upgrading your OS to Windows 10 is the best course of action. Unfortunately, large-scale deployments of a new OS  within a company can be an extremely exhausting and costly endeavor if you don’t make the proper preparations.

That is why most of the time, large-scale deployments and migrations are done via third-party tools.

One good example of such a tool is ZENworks Configuration Management, an enterprise client and mobility management that simplifies IT processes and boosts user productivity.

Why use ZENworks to migrate to Windows 10?

As you can imagine, migrating tens of thousands of users simultaneously from one OS to another is no easy job. In fact,  migrating PCs one-by-one is definitely out of the question, both in terms of time and in resources.

However, you choose a third-party service such as ZENworks Configuration Management.

These services will not only simplify and rapidly accelerate the Windows 10 migration process, but it will perform automatic imaging tasks and pre-boot services.

Another exciting feature is that it will also allow IT, administrators, to manage multiple Windows desktop operating systems and versions. This is particularly useful when a company cannot migrate all end-users at once, thus making it easier to control the mixed environment until the migration is complete.

What’s more, you can use it to manage the lifecycles of all your current and future assets. It also offers full support for Windows and Linux systems, as well as NetIQ® eDirectory, Active Directory, and more.

The best part about this service is that it also offers a Free Trial, allowing you to try out some of the tools before actually subscribing to the entire service.

Conclusion

Migrating an entire company to a new OS can be a nightmare for the IT department.

This is especially the case when there are thousands upon thousands of end-users. However, a small investment in the right set of tools can provide you with a significant return on investment.
