Today we unveiled a new service called Client Migration Solution. It’s an integrated set of assessment, design, deployment and management services with tools that our service team tells me can reduce migration costs by up to 62 percent and desk-side time and labor by 88 percent.
This migration service is designed for organizations planning an operating system migration or hardware deployment of 2,500 systems or more. It simplifies the process by addressing common challenges such as network utilization, application compatibility and end-user downtime, all while minimizing costs. As businesses evaluate their need to migrate to Vista, Dell can help them address their migration needs and procedures.
We based these services on our extensive experience managing millions of customer deployments around the globe. Client Migration Solution helps customers better understand their existing client environment by determining hardware and application compatibility, then seamlessly planning, deploying and managing migrated systems.
The solution leverages new patent-pending Dell Automated Deployment technologies that speed the deployment process, reduce post-migration support calls, reduce risk, and eliminate network traffic normally associated with deployments.
After the migration is complete, Dell provides customers with the tools and expertise needed to better manage ongoing technology refreshes and instruction to ensure support staff and end-users are properly trained.
The Client Migration Solution is available now to customers in the United States, Europe and Canada. as well as Dell Registered Partners. Pricing depends on customer needs and their specific client environment. These services are also available on a limited basis in Latin America and will be available to Asia-Pacific/Japan customers later this year.
Update: I was incorrect in saying that the Client Migration Solution is available to Dell Registered Partners. My apologies for that.
