April 16, 2009

Onsite Computer Services in New Orleans is dedicated to investigating Windows 7 and its features and benefits for our Microsoft small business clients in metro New Orleans.  As IT budgets are increasingly slashed in our present global economy, topics related to cost of ownership, increase in productivity, and ROI are important parameters in evaluating IT expenses.  Windows 7 is designed with manageability advancements that can reduce total cost of ownership by helping to increase automation, improve user productivity, and provide flexible administrative control to meet compliance requirements.

For most users, computers are integral parts of their workday. If computer problems do arise, users become unproductive in a short time. IT must rapidly resolve problems so the cost of IT involvement in resolving issues is minimized. Windows 7 provides many new and improved tools that can help users and IT professionals return to productivity with minimal expense. Users can solve many problems on their own without calling their IT service provider.  When IT help is necessary, Windows 7 provides IT professionals with the tools to rapidly diagnose and solve problems.

Each day Onsite will review aspects of Windows 7 that we encounter in our lab setting.  Windows 7 has a plethora of features that benefit small businesses through enhanced user productivity and reduced expenses:

A common goal of any business is to reduce costs while insuring users realize increased productivity. Resolving problems quickly, with as little IT expense as possible, is a central goal of any organization. Windows 7 aids in this effort to reduce costs while increasing user productivity with the new Windows Troubleshooting Packs.  These troubleshooting packs enable end-users to solve many common problems on their own, reducing the need for IT service calls and expense.

We’ve all used system restore for years; however we often are not aware of changes the system restore will create.  The Windows 7 System Restore tool is designed to inform users and administrators of applications that might be affected when returning Windows to a prior state.

IT professionals spend a significant amount of time with users to understand and troubleshoot problems. Onsite especially found great utility in the new Problem Steps Recorder which facilitates users to record screenshots, click-by-click, and reproduce a problem so IT can easily troubleshoot issues.   IT professionals will appreciate improvements to the Resource Monitor and Reliability Monitor.  These tools enable IT professionals to more quickly diagnose performance, compatibility, and resource limitation issues.

The above improvements launched by Windows 7 can reduce the time, and the associated expense, that IT professionals spend maintaining, troubleshooting, and meeting compliance requirements.  Additionally, Windows 7 Troubleshooting Packs and Problem Steps Recorder improve user productivity through reduced downtime.   There are so many features in Windows 7 to review.  Stay tuned as Onsite continues the discovery process of the new desktop offering from Microsoft.
