My name is Jamie Smith and I’m a Consultant for Certified Security Solutions Secure Infrastructure Management team. I would like to introduce you to the next segment of our ‘Windows 7 Accelerate with System Center’ marketing campaign: Deploying Virtualized Applications using System Center Configuration Manager 2007. If your organization is still running Windows XP then it’s time to take a long hard look at the calendar and look up April 8, 2014, or better yet, have a look here for the countdown. You have less than 22 months to man the Windows 7 lifeboats and evacuate the decommissioning Windows XP. Seeing as where a typical organization takes around 18 months to do a proper migration, that means there is still some time to step away from the panic button and look things over from stem to stern. One of the ways to can help yourself is by taking some of those applications that you really don’t want to install again and virtualize them.
