Here's an excellent white paper that you can use to help management understand the value of ZENworks.

"The lack of an available security patch or bug fix exposes companies to unfixable problems. We estimate the average cost-to-risks factor at 200 percent to 250 percent.?
Giga, September 2003

Has your company been holding on to aging PCs and their equally aging operating systems because they are ?running just fine?? In the face of a tough economy, this may be understandable, but are you putting your company at risk by not making the switch to more up-to-date hardware and software?

This paper focuses on the software side of things?OS migration. OS migration is typically defined as the process of moving a user's computer (desktop or laptop) from one OS version to a more current one. As you know, this also involves migrating users' personal settings, data and applications. Let's start with a few good reasons to make the switch:

  • Supportability
  • Security exposures
  • Compatibility with industry standards

Here's what you'll find in the paper:

  • TAKING THE PAIN OUT OF OS MIGRATION
  • WHY MIGRATE TO MICROSOFT WINDOWS 2000 OR XP PROFESSIONAL?
  • WHAT MAKES [MANUAL] OS MIGRATION SO DIFFICULT ?
  • EASING THE PROCESS WITH AUTOMATION
  • CHOOSING THE RIGHT SOLUTION
