  • Recommended products in solution: KACE is easy to use. It offers a comprehensive solution that customers could deploy in a day, and it is so intuitive that an IT generalist could get trained in hours and upgrade in minutes. 2.KACE appliances save companies money, offering a drastically lower total cost of ownership compared to software based solutions. The appliance form-factor enabled customers to avoid the hassle of software and hardware prerequisites and expensive professional services. The appliance platform coupled with software that was easy-to-use enabled us to do just that and create a breakthrough product for this customer segment. We called the Appliance the KBOX, but under Dell, we will refer them as Dell KACE Appliances.

  • In order to overcome these challenges and have a successful and efficient windows 7 migration, it’s important for organizations to look at the entire windows 7 migration process. Windows 7 migration includes much more than just the deployment of the operating system. It consists of analyzing inventory readiness, migrating user states, distributing software and patches, application virtualization, and ongoing management of assets. Inventory Readiness - Discover all software on your clients and assess which clients are ready for a Win 7 deployment.Network OS Install - Automate the build out of Gold master reference machines. User State Migration - Retain user specific files and settings. When the user turns on their computer for the first time, their files and settings will be there.Software distribution - Easily add files and folders to Win 7 image, eliminating duplicate transfers in the capture, storage and deployment.Patch Management - Patch and update clients on local and remote sites.Asset Management - Track Win 7 licenses and discover which software is being used vs. just installed. Retire unused licenses.
