  13. 13. The Deployment Project… Testing Process Infrastructure Remediation Image Engineering Application Management MigrationOffice Deployment Security Deployment Operations Readiness Project Process and Team Guidance Business Case for Deployment Do I need to invest in test hardware, personnel, and infrastructure? Do I replace all of my users’ hardware? Do I need to build and maintain an image for each hardware class? Are my applications going to work? Do my techs need to manually migrate everyone’s files at their desk or in the lab? Office, too? Does that mean more testing and images? How do I think about policies, data, and security now? Do my users need to send their hardware to IT or be without their PCs for a day? How is this going to impact users and the helpdesk?
  14. 14. …It Depends • Windows architecture and deployment tools change for a reason • Test? • Hardware? • Image management? • User data migration? • Hardware specs and application requirements pretty static for 3+ years • Security updates are easier to integrate into the project
  15. 15. …What it Means • Refresh existing hardware- don’t wait for hardware replacement • Make the process fast and not disruptive for users • Test wisely, but don’t expect things to break as often as before • That means fewer helpdesk calls than with previous OS deployments
