Microsoft has made the operating system (OS) migration process simple to upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10. Yet, there are many applications that will have conflicts or simply won’t install on Windows 10. While Microsoft and other vendors supply user environment management (UEM) tools to assist with migration, they are incapable of fixing applications which will not run on Windows 10. Other tools, such as AppDNA, can help identify problems but they do not do much to solve the issues. The reality is, there have always been migration challenges for every version of Windows dating back to its earliest versions.
Many of the largest industry leaders around the world are taking advantage of Cloudpaging technology as they are migrating from older Windows OS versions (such as Windows XP and Windows 7) over to Windows 10. Cloudpaging technology currently saves large enterprises between $5 million and $10 million annually in IT and software licensing costs. Cloudpaging can be used to migrate legacy, home-grown, bespoke, or in-house applications onto Windows 10 and Server 2016 platforms.
