ITEE Meeting: September 10, 2010

Thursday, September 2nd, 2010

Topic: Is your company ready for Windows 7 and Office 2010 deployment?

 Microsoft recently announced that Windows 7 has surpassed the 150 million unit sales. That means 15% of all the PCs in the world (nearly a billion) are now running Windows 7, making the new operating system (OS) the fastest adopted OS in history.

 But the good news for Microsoft may not be the same for your IT department. A PC refresh will not only take time and cost money, but proper planning and prioritization with other complex projects like deploying Office 2010 is critical.

 If these are some of your IT dilemmas, IT Executive Exchange (ITEE) will be holding a discussion on September 10, 2010 that should be of interest to you. The next ITEE meeting will discuss some of the features and best practices to help you make the decision to upgrade to Windows 7/Office 2010 or not.
