64-bit Migration Consulting for Windows 7 and Windows Servers
Microsoft Windows 7 is available in a 64-bit edition that represents a new benchmark for desktop dependability and performance. Unfortunately, for the majority of businesses the transition to 64-bit technology is challenging due to the need to make a new installation on each desktop. This involves reconfiguring applications, saving and restoring data files, and running new device drivers. Although companies in most cases already have 64-bit hardware, the effort needed to benefit fully from this resource appears too time-consuming. Yet since Microsoft Windows 7 usually requires a from-scratch installation, it represents a great opportunity to move up to 64-bit performance, which can be done with little or no additional effort. Progent's Microsoft Gold-certified engineers have in-depth experience planning and implementing major, efficient OS migrations of in-place workstations and can help your organization get the most out of your network budget by performing the migration to Windows 7 and to 64-bit computing simultaneously.
