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.Ray Ramcharran, Project Manager, John Lewis Partnership Services

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.Download full case study here.
