If Windows 7 is so hot and customers are moving, there are three key questions that enterprises need to answer: 1) How do I prepare for Windows 7? 2) How do I migrate to Windows 7? 3) How do I stay productive on Windows 7 after I've made the switch?
Fortunately, Novell has an answer with the ZENworks Trifecta. Specifically: 1) To prepare for Windows 7, the answer is ZENworks Asset Management 2) To migrate to Windows 7, the answer is ZENworks Configuration Management 3) To stay productive on Windows 7, the answer is ZENworks Application Virtualization Over the next few slides, we'll describe how each of of these ZENworks Trifecta pieces helps you get to Windows 7.
First, in terms on preparing for Windows 7, ZENworks Asset Management – the first part of the ZENworks Trifecta – can help you with that. Specifically, as a quick refresh of ZAM – it's our product that helps give a clear picture of all hardware and software assets in your company, from the desktops and notebooks on your network, to the software that's on them. The reason that's important is because it can help remain compliant with your software licenses and identify potential rogue devices on your network, which if not taken care of, can pose a security risk for your enterprise. So the logical question is, how does this help me prepare for Windows 7? Bottom-line, with ZAM, you can determine key targets for Windows 7. First, you can run Windows 7 readiness reports to determine what hardware can actually support Windows 7 based on standard Windows 7 configuration laid out by Microsoft. Second, you also have a clear view into your contracts and leases, so you can determine which devices are up for renewal and when, making those prime candidates for a migration. Third, through our software asset management capabilities, you get to see exactly what software is on your machines, and know right away if they are compatible on Windows 7, helping you assess potential alternatives if they're not. At the end of the day, by having a clear picture of what assets are Windows 7 ready – both hardware and software – can give you the key insight you need to know in preparing for your Windows 7 move.
The following slide shows some of the Windows 7 readiness reports you can run in ZAM to assess how ready for Windows 7 your environment is. For instance, the left hand chart shows whether or not your existing devices can support Windows 7 based on their existing hardware configurations – their processor speed, RAM, hard disk space – all aligned to Microsoft's recommended Windows 7 requirements.
Now, let's say you've used ZAM and have determined that some of your devices are ready for Windows 7. Let's say those devices are currently on XP and you now want to migrate over to Windows 7. How do you do it? That's where the second part of the ZENworks Trifecta – ZENworks Configuration Management, or ZCM – comes into the picture. ZCM contains some key capabilities that lets you migrate to Windows 7 with ease. For instance, with ZCM personality migration capabilities, you can automatically extract your existing Windows XP personality (e.g., application settings, bookmarks) and data so you can restore them onto your Windows 7 devices after the migration. Then, through ZCM OS imaging capabilities, you can automate the migration process by creating a policies that push and install Windows 7 onto your target devices (of course you don't need this step if you're introducing new devices with Windows 7 already pre-installed). And finally, you can leverage ZCM wake-on-LAN capabilities which allows you to do this migration off-hours, which minimizes the disruption of migration to your business. The best part of these three capabilities I've just described – personality migration, OS imaging, and wake-on-LAN – is that they're based on simple policies that you create and automatically deploy to your target devices, which saves significant time, money, and risk from manual processes. Better yet, by leveraging this type of policy-based automation, you set the foundation for building in repeatable processes for future migrations down the road.
One of the key reasons you should invest in ZCM for your migration is shown by some recent data from Gartner. Specifically, Gartner estimates that the cost of moving from Windows XP to Windows 7 is significantly less when in environments where machines and locked and well-managed environment – that is, machines are managed with tools, policies, and processes – versus when those devices are unmanaged. Specifically, the cost of migration is roughly 50% less for a locked and well-managed environments, versus an unmanaged environments. And again is largely driven by having automated processes in place to do the migration that saves time, reduces errors, and ultimately saves money. Bottom-line, if ZCM were installed in your environment, your cost to move to Windows 7 could be roughly 50% less than if ZCM were not installed. In addition, by then having ZCM running your environment, you would ultimately have much better PC manageability that would not otherwise receive if a systems management solution were not in place. That said, Windows 7 really does become that compelling event for you to consider investing in ZCM – again, not just as a way to soften the cost of the migration, but ultimately, as a way to lower the cost of managing and securing your endpoint environment for the long run.
Finally,you've prepared for a Windows 7 migration, you've made the Windows 7 migration, what do you need to do next? How do you stay productive on your machine? That's where the third part of the ZENworks Trifecta comes into play – ZENworks Application Virtualization, or ZAV. Now first, before I describe how ZAV keeps you productive on Windows 7, I want to also highlight how ZAV support your migration efforts. As previously described, you can use ZCM to automatically upgrade your XP boxes to Windows 7. That said, you can then use ZAV to rapidly move your applications over, minimize testing burden, and enure they work side-by-side without conflict. This can include applications like Internet Explorer 6, which many business applications rely on, in addition to your LOB applications. At the end of the day, ZAV supports your Windows 7 migration in several key ways – it reduces the time to install applications (since applications aren't installed with ZAV), it ensures your applications can run side-by-side without conflict (because ZAV applications run in their own self-contained box), and it dramatically reduces testing time across applications (because applications don't conflict with each other).. Finally, having deployed ZAV in your enterprise, you can continue to reap the benefits that it brings. For instance, you can use ZAV to: - Ensure new applications you install run in isolation, thereby preventing application conflicts, changes to the OS registry/.DLL Library, and ensure locked-down computers remain secure - Rapidly give you users the apps they need without having to install them, thus freeing IT resources, reducing downtime, and maximizing productivity - Allow your users to run virtual applications directly from a USB Stick (or other removable storage media), allowing them to take their applications with them as needed (freeing nomadic and home-based users).
As we've just discussed, this slide highlights the three key parts of the ZENworks Trifecta – ZAM, ZCM, and ZAV – that can help you make the move to Windows 7, and ensure that you can continue to easily manage your Windows 7 machines in your heterogeneous environment.
In addition to ZAM, ZCM, and ZAV, our endpoint security management products – ZENworks Endpoint Security Management, ZENworks Patch Management, and ZENworks Network Access Control – also support Windows 7.
By combining these products previous described, Novell Endpoint Management solutions can ultimately help manage and secure your Windows 7 devices, along with your other devices, across their life cycles.
Using Novell Endpoint Management solutions, enterprise can lower the cost of managing and securing their endpoint environments while increasing end-user productivity. We deliver these solutions by focusing on three key capabilities – endpoint configuration management, endpoint security management, and IT asset management. In the following slides, we'll describe how each of these capabilities delivers the benefits you need for your end-user computing environment.
Now, when considering solutions across various vendors, it becomes critical to look at cost. One reasons why we think ZENworks makes for a more compelling solution over the competition – for instance, LANDesk, Altiris, and Microsoft – comes down the cost. For instance, if you consider a typical deployment where you want to manage 1,000 desktops, through central location and 10 branch offices, the cost of ZENworks Configuration Management is substantially less than the competitors. Specifically, the total cost of the deployment based on list prices – which takes into account the cost of the endpoint management software (including maintenance), incremental operating system cost, incremental 3 rd party software such as databases, and any incremental hardware – is 23% less than Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager, 105% less than LANDesk Management Suite, and 136% less than Altiris Client Management Suite. The reason for this dramatic savings is a direct result of the flexibility and choice that ZENworks Configuration management delivers. Specifically, because ZENworks Configuration Management supports Linux, such as SUSE Linux Enterprise, and comes embedded with a Sybase database, that means you save significant money on the back-end because you can leverage you existing investments are not forced to purchase Windows Server 2008, 1,000 Microsoft Core Client Access Licenses (which are required required to “talk” to Windows Server and are very expensive), and the cost of Microsoft SQLServer. In addition, if you don't have these investments already in place, it's no secret that the TCO of owning SUSE Linux Enterprise can be significantly less than Windows Server and its associated Client Access Licenses. Finally, by not being locked into a Microsoft architecture – which you would certainly be forced into with the Microsoft, LANDesk, or Altiris solutions – this cross-platform differentiator in ZENworks Configuration Management ultimately aligns with with IT infrastructure choices you want to make for your organization down the road.
In addition to comparing costs among competitors, another key metric to understand is the actual return on investment ZENworks will deliver to you organization. According to a 2008 IDC report, running a combination of ZENworks Asset Management, ZENworks Endpoint Security Management, and ZENworks Patch Management can deliver annualized benefits of roughly $28K per 100 employees. For a 10,000 person company, this translates to yearly benefits of roughly $2.8M. Now, these benefits come in three forms – increased IT productivity, increased end-user productivity, and IT cost-savings. Specifically, the IDC study found that 45% of those benefits were from increased user-productivity – specifically, by implementing endpoint security, patching, and asset management, users experienced benefits such as less downtime, reduced time dealing with software compatibility issues, fewer problems dealing with security-related issues, fewer calls to helpdesk, etc. More importantly, when IDC looked at the return on investment, it found that customers who deployed these three ZENworks products experienced a 726% return on investment over a 3-year period, with an extremely rapid average payback period of 7.5 months. Clearly, these number speak for themselves – huge annualized benefits driven by increased user productivity, large ROI, and rapid payback – these are all reasons that make ZENworks an extremely compelling solution that delivers immediate value in your enterprise.
