CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) said it has announced the availability of CA Desktop Migration Manager to help resource-constrained IT departments transition from Windows XP to more secure operating systems.
A scalable, easy to use migration solution for the management, upgrade, and maintenance of laptop and desktop systems, this product is available for free download for all enterprises affected by Microsoft´s decision to discontinue support for Window XP.
System migration challenges are particularly relevant today as organizations strive to keep their IT systems productive, competitive, updated and secure. The challenge of recreating each user´s unique desktop environment is compounded when executing upgrades or enhancements for thousands of PCs. This includes retaining and transferring: system and application settings, network and printer settings, data files and folders, email address books, preferences and more. When performed manually, this process is time-consuming, labour-intensive, error-prone and costly, thus impeding the adoption of new technology.
