Windows 11 ConsultingMicrosoft's Windows 11 is more of a major update to Windows 10 rather than a radically new client operating system. Changes focus on enhancing productivity by providing the user with an easy-to-customize environment with convenient access to commonly used applications and commonly referenced information. A signature example is the redesigned Start menu, which allows you to pin and arrange icons for your favorite applications for fast access.

Progent's Microsoft-certified consultants can help you verify the compatibility and performance of Windows 11 running your key applications and services so you can assess the benefits to your business of migrating to Windows 11. Migration services offered online or onsite by Progent include ROI analysis, pilot system design, hybrid cloud integration, mobile connectivity, security and compliance consulting, work-from-home solutions, deployment and management planning and automation, network infrastructure design, Wi-Fi setup, patch management, disaster recovery planning, training for IT staff and end users, and post-migration technical support.

Progent stands out for the ability to provide advanced guidance for Windows 11 on short notice. Progent can deliver occasional as-needed expertise or comprehensive project management and co-management services to help you complete major Windows 11 initiatives on schedule and within budget.

New and Enhanced Features of Windows 11
Windows 11 modernizes its user interface across hardware platforms, allows extensive desktop customization, integrates popular apps that previously had to be downloaded, offers native support for Android apps, and provides access to Widgets for real-time information feeds.

Enhancements to Windows 11 include:

  • The revamped Start Menu is the most prominent new feature of Windows 11, replacing the earlier space-hungry version with a compact, center-stage control panel that comes populated with default apps and can be easily customized to include the user's favorite programs.
  • A personal version of Microsoft Teams is integrated into Windows 11 and is accessible from the taskbar. With this trimmed-down version of Teams, you can immediately call, chat, test, or launch a video or voice call with people in your contacts list.
  • Snap Layouts provide an advanced tool for arranging windows into selected zones within predefined layouts on the Windows 11 desktop. Hovering over a window's maximize button displays a menu of available layouts. Clicking on a zone in a layout "snaps" the selected window into that zone. Snap Assist lets you populate your selected layout with additional windows. You can save completed Snap Layouts in Snap Groups accessible from the taskbar.

  • The pre-installed Power Automate desktop flow designer is a robotic process automation (RPA) tool that allows non-experts to record time-saving workflows that can automate all repetitive desktop processes. Power Automate allows you to use built-in or custom processes and can interact with common applications including email, Excel, websites, files, and folders. Power Automate is intended to replace Microsoft's legacy automation tools Windows recorder (V1) and Selenium IDE.
  • Virtual Desktops allow you to create multiple custom desktops that each display applications associated with specific activities and workflows such as accounting, entertainment, or investing. You can create virtual desktops and switch between them from the Task view icon on the Windows 11 taskbar.

  • Windows 11 revives Widgets, which consolidate current information generated by various apps and services. This information can include weather, news, stocks, calendar, and other dynamic data. Users can add, remove, arrange, resize, and customize widgets according to their personal interests and work environment. Each user's newsfeeds are tuned automatically but users can specify topics and publishers.

    Widgets provide up-to-date info on user-specified topics like weather, news, stocks, and calendar

  • Android Apps can run natively on Windows 11. The new Windows Subsystem for Android allows a Windows 11 PC to run mobile apps from the Amazon Appstore. Installed apps can use cellular data if your Windows 11 PC supports a cellular connection and you have a data plan with a mobile service provider.
  • TCP performance for high-speed networks is improved by the inclusion of the TCP HyStart++ and RACK-TLP algorithms in the Windows 11 transport stack. HyStart++ cuts down packet loss during connection start-up and RACK-TLP reduces Retransmit TimeOuts (RTOs).
Progent's Microsoft-certified consulting experts can help businesses of all sizes to integrate Windows 11 into their information network to maximize the business value of Windows 11's new and enhanced features.

Windows 11 Migration Services
Windows 11 will not work with older model CPUs or ones that do not include Trusted Platform Module (TPM) version 2.0. hardware. For in-place upgrades to Windows 11, generation 2 VMs must have two or more virtual processors, meet host CPU requirements, and have virtual TPM enabled. You cannot perform in-place upgrades of existing generation 1 VMs to Windows 11. For eligible devices, you can deploy Windows 11 as an upgrade to Windows 10 using familiar tools like Windows Autopilot, Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT), Configuration Manager, and others. For PCs running Windows 8, you must first implement the free upgrade to Windows 10.

Because Windows 10 and Windows 11 can coexist, you can roll out Windows 11 at your own pace. You can run the same utilities and follow the same workflows to manage both types of clients. You can monitor endpoints, verify application compatibility, and automate Windows 11 deployments with the same tools you use with Windows 10. This ability to support a unified management environment simplifies Windows 11 migration. Progent can help you plan and carry out a Windows 11 migration that maximizes the utilization of your current IT assets including desktops, software tools, applications, services, and infrastructure.
