PHASE I
Benchmark with Stratusphere™ FIT
Assess and quantify machine, user, and infrastructure metrics.
Provide visibility into user persona and authored data.
Access applications for usage and master image strategy.
Define the baseline user experience.
Design base image on actual usage metrics.
Group users into appropriate tiers based on consumption.

PHASE I
Visibility Throughout Is Key
Workers’
Desktops
How are users spending
their time?
What are they consuming?
What is the baseline
user experience?
8
Target
Image
Are image resources
adequate and available?
Are problems developing?
Constraints and/or avoidable
crashes ahead?
PHASE I
Summary of Benefits
Collect data automatically.
Accurate data — no lost work time for users.
Reduce migration labor costs.
Accurate metrics lead to accurate planning.
Save on licensing costs.
Identify apps that users have but never use.

Summary of Benefits
Prevent unplanned downtime.
Get fewer post-migration calls to the Help Desk.
Track system performance.
See from the desktop to the data center, and across all networks.
Measure success.
Built-in reports provide accurate ROI and TCO data.

What a migration looks like when
you simplify the process:
Save money.
Reduce migration labor costs; save on licensing costs.
Save time.
Reduce user downtime during migration; manage one image instead of 300.
Use fewer resources.
Centralize migration operations; manage fewer post-migration calls.
Monitor proactively.
Alert administrators to issues; prevent unplanned downtime.
Keep end-users productive.
Optimize performance; provision resources quickly.
18
Simplify the migration process —
and execute it with speed and confidence.

Post-Migration
Monitor and
measure
all hardware,
operating
systems,
and applications.
Define baseline
of usage and user
experience.
Create a master
image.
Conduct phased
image
deployment.
Monitor and
compare.
Easily discover all
the metrics you
need before the
move. Define what
migration success
will mean to you.
Produce reports
and use them to
put a project plan
together.
Create and deploy
a mirror-perfect
image (and
manage one image
instead of 300).
Set triggers to let
you know when
post-migration
performance is
less than ideal —
and drill down to
see where the
problem really is.
Fix it before
anyone reports it
as an issue.
Validate that
migration worked
properly.
Generate reports
that quantify
success.
Disaster recovery.
Use pre-migration
snapshot for
recovery and
repair, as needed.
Recover systems
due to lost, stolen,
or broken PCs.

Imagine this:
You controlled your migration instead of it
controlling you. You migrated on time and on
budget — with minimal downtime and optimum
performance during and after the migration.
