Windows 10 Upgrade

Deliver a Secure, Enhanced Mobile Experience to Your Users

Windows 10 is an entirely new Microsoft operating system that delivers a fresh user experience, higher levels of security, and enhanced mobility features such as a more advanced virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). With prior versions of Windows nearing the end of their useful life, businesses should be planning, or engaged in, a migration to this new platform. In fact, widespread adoption has already begun.

Veristor’s consultants prepare you for this critical upgrade by helping to assess your current environment and plan a seamless migration approach based on your specific needs and objectives. We then develop a design and deployment strategy that will enable you to maximize the investment in your new platform.


Windows 10 Readiness

The Windows 10 operating system provides many new benefits, but it may not work completely in sync with all of your legacy systems. It’s critical to verify compatibility with industry-specific applications, backup and antivirus software, and peripherals such as printers. By utilizing our Windows 10 migration solutions, you can uncover and resolve compatibility issues before they occur by:

  • Collecting server, desktop, application, and driver data for Windows 10 readiness analysis
  • Identifying compatibility issues that can block your upgrade and the suggested fixes
  • Integrating a readiness analysis with system configurations to accelerate the move to Windows 10

VDI Assessment

Before deploying or expanding a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), it’s important to conduct an assessment of your current compute resources and application usage. A comprehensive analysis can help you measure the value of implementing a new VDI or expanding an existing one. You can then streamline the planning of the rollout or expansion should you decided to proceed. We can help you properly prepare with our assessment tools that include:

  • Scanning machines to gather data on memory, CPU, disk usage, storage capacity, and networking bandwidth
  • Measuring typical desktop workloads by user and by machine
  • Comparing installed applications against application usage to control licensing costs

Deployment Options

Once you determine it makes sense to deploy a new operating system for your servers and end-user devices, the next key decision is determining how to handle the implementation. The method you choose could have a major impact on how smoothly your organization can adapt to the new environment. With our deployment options, we help you explore the viability of several choices such as:

  • Deploying a new operating system across your entire enterprise
  • Upgrading through a system migration
  • Purchasing new hardware

Project Planning

When planning your platform upgrade, the first challenge is to chart the optimal course that enables you to complete the project as efficiently and cost-effectively possible. It’s also important to predict roadblocks so you can remove obstacles that could get in the way and potentially disrupt end users. Our project planning solutions enable you to develop structured migration plans to ensure timely upgrades for your server, desktop, and mobile operating systems by:

  • Evaluating the business and technical requirements
  • Understanding the current state of the existing infrastructure and applications
  • Assessing end-user needs

VDI Infrastructure Build Out

Businesses are increasingly looking to IT to deliver workspaces that allow employees to access data, applications, and communication resources from multiple devices. But achieving this objective can be complex and overwhelming. To help overcome this challenge, our VDI build out solutions give you the ability efficiently expand your virtual infrastructure and improve employee productivity by:

  • Assessing the viability of expanding your current virtualized desktop systems
  • Allocating the precise required compute resources to optimize application provisioning
  • Preventing network bottlenecks and accelerating storage I/O rates

Windows as a Service Release Assessment

Tapping into the Windows 10 operating system as a service in the cloud can improve your IT agility and reduce your licensing costs. But it’s also important to understand how to effectively implement Windows 10 as a service—and make sure it serves your needs. Our assessment service can help ensure you are on the right path by:

  • Understanding the prerequisites to migrate to Windows 10 as a service
  • Leveraging data-driven insights to reduce the cost of deployment, service, and ongoing support
  • Helping you adhere to security and compliance requirements

Enterprise Mobility Management for All Mobile Devices

End users rely on a wide range of mobile devices and operating systems—both personal and corporate-owned. Finding a way to efficiently manage all of them so employees can work productively, while protecting digital assets, presents a major yet common challenge. Our enterprise mobility solutions leverage a range of device, application, and content technologies to simplify management for IT and streamline application access by:

  • Giving users single-click access to all of their apps from an intuitive interface
  • Enabling IT to easily configure, secure, and manage laptops, smartphones, tablets, and IoT devices
  • Increasing user productivity and improving IT security that also enables greater business agility

Windows 10 Migration Assessment and Roadmap

With the advanced features and functionality of the Windows 10 operating system that help businesses continue to move at the pace of innovation, a companywide upgrade is inevitable. We can help you identify your organization’s Windows 10 migration challenges and needs with a comprehensive review of the people, processes, and technologies that are currently in place. Together, we can help you establish an upgrade strategy in a way that supports your business objectives and begins with the highest impact technology moves.
