SmartDeploy Announces Support for Windows 8 Migration


SmartDeploy, a leader in IT management solutions, software and services, announced the ability to fully support migration and deployment of Windows 8, Microsoft's latest operating system (OS). SmartDeploy Enterprise, the reliable solution for economical deployment of all versions of Windows, now has expanded functionality to fully support Windows 8 deployments. SmartDeploy Enterprise is a single-image management solution for migration, remote imaging and simplified PC break-fix.

SmartDeploy recommends companies look at the current OS versions in place and determine the timeline to upgrade now. Many IT departments will need to reevaluate and adapt the current migration strategy, while dealing with resource constraints, tight budgets and unreliable tools. Developing a comprehensive plan and equipping the IT team with a flexible toolset can simplify current and future migration projects by centralizing management and improving reliability.

“With Windows 8 officially launched, IT departments large and small should prepare now for Windows 8 and the new Windows devices that will enter the workplace,” said Aaron Suzuki, CEO of SmartDeploy. “Fundamental changes in Windows 8 will make OS migration more complex than in years past. The centralized single-image management capabilities of SmartDeploy Enterprise simplify migration and ongoing image management for all of the OS versions in a modern business network.”
