Organizations everywhere have either made the jump to Windows 7 or are planning to do so. As discussed in our 2010 Windows 7 Migration Survey Report, there are common characteristics and practices among companies who were successful in their upgrade, offering others the opportunity to avoid the same bumps in the road. The conclusion of the study was that a smooth and efficient migration to Windows 7 requires a sound migration plan and an integrated, automated solution.
There are plenty of tools available to help with automation, security, backup, virtualization and other parts of the process, but not all organizations have the resources to buy such solutions. And in some cases their current machines do not even meet the requirements for the upgrade. You can imagine the predicament of a smaller business, non-profit, school or other type of organization that wants to upgrade, but isn’t able to afford it.
The Symantec team wants to help, so we are offering those organizations a chance to win the tools they need to make the move to Windows 7 – including up to $70,000 in hardware, software and services. All they need to do is create a two-minute video explaining why they are the most deserving of such a prize – the more entertaining and compelling, the better.
Check out the “Dollars for Desktops” web site for all of the details. We will accept video submissions until Jan. 31, 2011, so don’t miss this opportunity to give your organization the boost it needs to take advantage of new technology.
