  2. 2. Six Step Process1. Inventory Readiness2. Initial OS Deployment3. User State Migration4. Software Distribution5. Patch Management6. Asset Management
  3. 3. Inventory ReadinessWith regards toinventory there needsto be a way to discoverall of the software andhardware on yournetwork. This will help youdetermine yourreadiness and potentialupgrade for Windows 7.Kace’s scanningfeature will help youdiscover all of this.

  6. 6. Initial OS DeploymentContinued… K-Imagining is Kace’s file based imaging format. The two main benefits of K Imagines are that they use smart synchronization and they are editable. All of this helps eliminate duplicate transfers.
  7. 7. User State MigrationThis will permit userspecific settings andfiles to be deployedwith an OS andapplications.This minimized thelikelihood of missinginformation and helpsmitigate end-user downtime. Everything theywanted to retain fromtheir old OS orcomputer will be readyfor them.
  8. 8. User State MigrationContinued… To implement one of these migrations you follow a simple process in which you scan user states from a computer on your network. Then you choose the specific users to where you want to upload the Kace appliance and then enable them for deployment as a Postinstallation Task. After selecting the correct user states for deployment you are finished!
  9. 9. Software DistributionAfter this migration ofWindows 7 is completemany organizationsneed to distributedbusiness softwarethroughout theirnetwork quickly andefficiently.Kace SoftwareDistribution doesn’trequire MSI’s and willtake any file, even .exe. LDAP and Real TimeActive Directoryprovide easy alignmentwith the employeestructure.
  10. 10. Software Distribution This will allows you to easily schedule specified software to certain groups within the organization. If the user is busy they can postpone the installation until a better time. With Remote Replication it helps you manage remote sites just as easily. For more detailed information on Software Distribution go here.
  11. 11. Patch ManagementPatches must bedeployed for Windows 7and for Windows 7Applications.Kace makes thispossibly by providing acentralized interface forpatch deployment formachines atheadquarters as well asremote sites.
  12. 12. Asset ManagementA centralized approachis absolutely crucial tomanaging Lease Info, SWLicenses, and SWMetering.These have directfinancial impacts on theorganization’s coststructure. These costsneed to be analyzed inorder to successfullyupgrade to Windows 7.Kace makes this easy viaa centralized web basedinterface you can viewthis information for eachcomputer on yournetwork.
