Mitigate Cost by Migrating to Windows 10

Ten years ago, Microsoft changed the IT marketplace by releasing Windows 7, Office 2010, SharePoint 2010, and followed that success with the re-casting of Skype for Business. These products all quickly became mainstays, deployed across entire organizations – Windows 7 is still the OS for ~40% of the globe*.

With new versions of these products recently released, the year 2020 will be a year of reckoning for many firms, as hundreds of millions of installations all reach end-of-life for their support services. While some organizations may choose to operate beyond these dates, the risk of operating without security patches is high, and the increasing cost of staying (doubling per year) has been a strong catalyst for a migration to Windows 10.

Windows 10 is the foundation of the new Digital Workplace. Microsoft’s motivation to get everyone there is embodied in their rapid security updates, new features, and migration support. These migrations still require significant time investments, but when done right, can lower costs.

Sierra Systems has a proven approach for the safe transition of operating system, data, and governance into this Digital Workplace, while advancing your system with:

  • End-to-end Windows 10 upgrades, with optimized deployment options
  • Collaboration enhancement via Teams, Office 365 and Azure toolsets
  • Cloud design and architectural strategy
  • Exchange mailbox migration
  • Lync and Skype for business migration to Microsoft Teams
  • Tools to launch “digital employees”

Our application management services (AMS) teams offer post-migration paths for upkeep of security (including data sovereignty), licensing and process optimization. These services are backed by decades of experience, and the expansive offerings of 200,000 worldwide resources through our new parent company, NTT DATA Services.
