Windows 10 Migration

Description

The Windows 10 migration pack will help you during your migration process, from initial planning through to post-migration checks. Moreover, it will accompany you through the regular flow of Windows 10 upgrades.

Note: this pack is a remake of an earlier Windows 10 Migration pack, which is now deprecated. It takes advantage of Campaigns and Scores, two new powerful features which have been added to Nexthink since the publication of the original pack.

Planning

  • Validate which business- and user-critical applications are compatible with Windows 10. Compatibility may differ for each version of Windows 10 (e.g. 1607 - Redstone 1, 1703 - Redstone 2, etc.).
  • Validate which devices have sufficient hardware to be migrated to Windows 10 (32- and 64-bit versions have different hardware requirements). Save money by assessing if certain devices can be upgraded instead of being replaced.
  • Measure the overall satisfaction of end-users with their current device (this will act as your baseline) and discover which end-users are willing to be early adopters.

Roll out

  • On a day-to-day basis, check which end-users are ready and when will be the best time for them to migrate.
  • Be aware, at each moment in time, of your roll-out status.
  • Compare key performance indicators and end-user satisfaction with a before/after approach to ensure that you are not introducing issues.

Post-migration

  • Validate that no major issues have been introduced and that your new Windows 10 environment is running smoothly.
