EMPOWERING PARTNERS WITH WINDOWS 7

    EMPOWERING PARTNERS WITH WINDOWS 7

Upgrading Windows estate

As one of the UK’s leading retailers, the John Lewis Partnership (John Lewis) must provide its 2,500 head office partners in London with access to the latest technologies. With its existing Microsoft Windows estate entering extended support, the retailer decided to upgrade to Windows 7 to avoid increased risk and cost.


Computacenter’s experience and best practice processes meant it was able to pre-empt potential issues and ensure an efficient and seamless transition to the new operating system.

OBJECTIVES

  • Continuous Improvement/Innovation
  • Risk Avoidance

Helping increase productivity & satisfaction

Computacenter conducted a comprehensive discovery exercise to assess the retailer’s existing hardware and user requirements at three head office sites, six residential clubs and several home offices. Devices were then upgraded or replaced using a ‘rolling stock’ approach according to their ability to support the new operating system. We were responsible for the build, configuration and deployment scheduling of the devices, which included an additional 700 virtual desktops for overseas developers.
