Cutting the time and cost of OS deployments
Migrating to Windows 7 or Windows 8 is optimized with 1E solutions and services
Upgrading to a new operating system like Windows 7 or 8 can be very expensive, complicated and
time consuming. Using Microsoft System Center 2012 Conguration Manager and 1E technologies
you can address the most challenging of scenarios. We employ proven software tools and business-focused technical consulting to deliver an extensible, end-to-end operating system deployment
solution all without any servers and with zero impact on the business trafc on your network.
Simple steps to optimizing Windows 7 or Windows 8 deployments
Understand usage data and compatible applications
AppClarity™ leverages Microsoft Conguration Manager
to instantly obtain an accurate picture of all deployed applications. Each software install is instantly analysed to determine if it is used, occasionally used or unused. It will map out-of-date and incompatible installations across your estate.
Clean up IT environment and ensure computer health
Unused licenses can be harvested from machines using a policy-based approach. When a license is unused it can be reclaimed automatically or with user consultation. WakeUp® determines computer health through 27 health checks which are performed on each PC prior to migration to maximize the number of PCs which will be candidates for zero-touch migrations.
Shop for Operating System upgrades:
Shopping™ gives users an easy-to-use wizard to schedule migration or deployment themselves. Users can schedule the migration out-of-hours or at a time when it is convenient to them so it does not disrupt their work or productivity. Also IT can shop for an upgrade on behalf of a group of users.
Choose applications to be reinstalled
Users see which applications they had under the old Operating System and whether they were ever used, enabling them to select which applications they require under the new OS. Application compatibility is automatically handled, with newer versions installed if required.
Keep data safe
Peer Backup Assistant allows user data to be saved to peer machines eliminating any need for local servers. Nomad Enterprise dynamically elects a peer to store the data and once the OS migration is complete, the data is reinstalled back from the peer. Data is only retained on the peer during the migration process and is deleted when migration has concluded.
Wake up PCs for scheduled non-disruptive migration
Wake-on-LAN instantly powers on and patches PCs out of hours so that workers’ productivity is unaffected. This means a zero-touch Windows migration including reinstalling the pre-selected applications on users machines. WakeUp will power down the machine once deployment is complete and power up the machine in the morning so it is ready for immediate use.
The most appropriate PC from each branch is automatically selected to receive the data. If the elected PC is powered-off, even half-way through a download, a different PC is elected automatically allowing the deployment to continue and complete seamlessly.

WHAT ANALYSTS SAY
“The Total Economic Impact of Windows 7”, the Risk Adjusted ROI for companies after completion of migration was 129% with an average break even period of 13 months.”
80,000 desktops migrated in just four months
In 2012 one of 1E’s customers sought to upgrade its entire estate and migrate all desktops to Windows 7. Using Nomad it completed its Windows 7 migration on 80,000 seats in four months of which over 30,000 were completed in a single month, all with zero disruption to the business:
Signicantly reduced number of servers needed in the enterprise.
A continual optimized process for day-to-day systems management (to cover replace and refresh cycles).
Only one 1E consultant worked on the project with the internal customer team.
Minimum resources, maximum expertise.
