How to upgrade the desktop AND keep your job
Conclusion: As Windows 7 celebrates its first birthday many organisations are contemplating a desktop upgrade. Most desktops were designed more than seven years ago and there are many new technologies and approaches that need to be considered.
For most staff the desktop is a personal experience, making the upgrade a high-profile project. Treating this as just a technical refresh risks creating a technically successful solution that is considered an expensive failure by the business, or of marginal value. To avoid a career-limiting move, approach the desktop upgrade as a business project that has strong links to key business drivers, and structure the implementation to ensure it quickly delivers tangible business benefits.
