As of April 2014, Microsoft will no longer offer service to Windows XP. With the deadline approaching, many organizations are either preparing or putting off their respective migration to either Windows 7 or Windows 8. With a well-crafted Windows migration strategy in place, companies can improve user productivity, enhance security, and avoid high installation costs. Symantec suggests a four-pronged approach to help ease the burdens migration can cause. These suggestions are: 
  1. Assess
  2. Prepare and plan
  3. Ready to migrate
  4. Post-migration management
Coupled with Symantec’s superior migration solutions that both simplify and secure the overall process, these tips will help your organization successfully navigate the complex process quickly and efficiently. Stop worrying about tomorrow and let Symantec help you today! To learn the best tips for successful migration, check out this article:...

Good news from Symantec CEO Steve Bennett has arrived in the form of a Customer and Partner letter.

The important bit for us is that Endpoint Management is explictly listed as being a critical part of the Symantec portolio moving forward. This is something which was not clear in the previous company strategy annoucement.

He closes by saying,

"Despite any rumors to the contrary, all of these technologies remain a critical part of our product development and overall portfolio. We believe that through greater alignment of these technologies, Symantec will improve our product integration to help you improve and simplify your end users’ IT experiences"

I'm blogging this out as I know there are many Altiris Administrators out there who will let out a huge sigh of relief on this one.

Kind Regards,
Ian./...

Hello Everyone,

I thought i would share this with you all, it is a webcast on Symantec best practice approach to effective patch management for clients and servers.

Attend our webcast to learn how to build and roll-out a complete patch management strategy to:

•Ensure that Windows, Mac...
