Microsoft Windows 7 ConsultingMicrosoft Windows 7 is a legacy desktop operating system that introduced new levels of performance, security, and reliability. In comparison to prior releases of Microsoft's flagship OS, Windows 7 offered faster startup, better resource sharing, simpler networking, and streamlined administration. Windows 7 also represented a great opportunity for businesses to upgrade to 64-bit computing on the desktop.

End of Support for Windows 7
Microsoft has placed Windows 7 on End of Support status. This means that Microsoft offers no technical support for any issues and no longer provides software or security updates or patches. Although computers running Windows 7 can still function, End of Support status can bring about a growing list of undesirable issues concerned with cybersecurity, compliance, application compatibility, and even civil liability. If you are considering an upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10 or Windows 11, Progent's Windows 10 and Windows 11 consultants can help you determine the potential benefit of a modern version of Windows for your business and can help you plan and execute a cost-effective migration to Windows 10 or Windows 11 based on leading practices.

Progent's Services for Migrating from Windows 7
Progent's methodology for migrating to Windows 7 is based on proven best practices that contain costs and minimize service disruption. Progent can help you assess the business case for upgrading to Windows 7 and can assist you in any phase of your Windows 7 migration, from planning to project management and execution.

Progent can help you determine which approach will be the most reliable and cost effective for your environment.

For large-scale migrations to Windows 7, the use of computer imaging is the recommended way to save time and avoid errors. This involves establishing baseline desktop configurations for different environments within a company network and capturing these configurations as images that can be replicated automatically to appropriate desktop PCs. images include the operating system, drivers, and core applications, making it possible to standardize the way your desktops are configured and avoiding the delay and errors associated with manual installation.
