Solutions to reduce cost of Windows 7 deployments upto 25%

Noida, India -- Nov 16, 2009 - HCL Technologies Ltd. (HCL), the global IT services provider, today announced launch of its XpressMigrate suite of offerings for Windows 7 migrations enabling enterprises to minimize risk, bring higher visibility and reduce Windows 7 deployment cost upto 25%.

HCL’s XpressMigrate suite consists of three offerings:

  • Remote Desktop Deployment Solution for Microsoft Windows 7

  • Application Compatibility Factory Service (ACFS) for Windows 7

  • Application Packaging Service (APFS) for Windows 7


Remote Desktop Deployment offers centralized deployment of the operating system and packaged applications which automate the deployment process for extremely low manual intervention. It also provides assurance against loss of data through a robust user state backup and restoration process for user data and settings. HCL has also developed a Deployment Dashboard at the core of this solution which will provide both an overall as well as in-depth status report for all deployments. This dashboard gives visibility on milestones like number of deployments completed, failed deployments and status of opened tickets, status view of current active deployments, time taken for deployments, and upcoming schedule for deployments.

The ACFS and APFS offerings provide application compatibility, packaging and re-imaging solutions that offer an accelerated Windows 7 deployment based on Microsoft Best Practices using HCL’s tried and tested migration approach.

Commenting on this innovative solution, Maninder Singh, Head of End User Computing Services, HCL Technologies Infrastructure Services Division (HCLT ISD) said, ?Our XpressMigrate suite offers compelling benefits to enterprises like centralized deployment of Desktop OS & Applications, automated process with minimum manual intervention, high visibility, reporting and simplified image management.
