Gartner Says “Start Getting Ready to Move to Windows 7”

Gartner recently released an web page devoted to Windows 7 and topics around migration to Windows 7.  In a short video, a research VP from Gartner states that because manufacturers are going to move ahead with Windows 7 companies should look at moving ahead with Windows 7 deployment by 2012.  The statement is more quantified by the fact that Microsoft will be support Windows XP SP3 until 2014.  They feel that organizations will feel the push into Windows 7 much earlier.

At this site is many different links and support documentation about the migration to Windows 7 and how much it potentially could cost an organization.  Based on my research and many, many seminars I would say the number one cost for organization will be in the time spent on making sure applications work within the Windows 7 environment.  I will talk more about Application Compatibility in future posts.  But for now enjoy the Gartner website.
