Managed Windows 7 or Windows 10 Migration

Using management tooling

Migrate your desktop to a newer version of Windows 7 or Windows 10:
  • Plan a Windows migration
  • Keep track of issues
  • Integrated with Windows discovery information

 

 

[fa icon="plus-square"] Why do I need a migration management tool?

Some of the benefits of using a migration manager:

- Schedule departments / teams
- Keep track of dependent events such as end-user training
- Keep track of Windows OS build problems
- Kepp track of application problems

The issue databases are available long after a successful migration, providing the desktop team some history of what happened specifically during the migration project.

Both are great tools for deployment, upgrades and migration.  But for a program manager these tools are too technical to help plan a migration.  Lens collects the pertinent information necessary to plan and execute a desktop migration - and makes it visibile for all people authorised to use it.
