You’ve wanted to deploy Windows 7 since the date it came out. Far more secure and manageable than Windows XP and far less cranky than Windows Vista, getting on Windows 7 is what you need to make your job easier. What’s holding you up? It might be your applications. Some apps just don’t work atop Windows 7. Others need a little extra care to get them functioning. Microsoft recognizes this need and provides a suite of application compatibility tools like the Application Compatibility Toolkit and the Microsoft Assessment and Planning Toolkit that solve this problem. Yet both of these tools can be hard to use without help. Get that help with a jump start from Microsoft MVP and deployment expert Greg Shields. You’ll leave this session with everything you need to inventory your apps, determine the fixes they need, and remove all the hurdles to your Windows 7 migration.
