Migration learning and changing your desktop

Migrating your desktop and the process of changing the applications and working environment you have used and are familiar with, is a challenging and potentially daunting exercise.

The worry that users cannot use the new systems and therefore are unable to continue working is something that the correctly focused training will assist you and your team with.

Global Knowledge have devised a range of migration focused videos that will enable your team to carry on working the day after the migration. The range includes all the major areas:

  • Microsoft Windows 8.1 desktop
  • Microsoft Windows 7 Desktop
  • Microsoft Office 2013 (Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint)
  • Microsoft Office 2010 (Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint)
  • OneDrive
  • Internet Explorer 11
  • Lync 2010
  • Lync 2013
  • SharePoint 2013
  • Webmail

Below you will find a selection of sample videos; these are normally used in conjunction with additional learning tools and services. For a guide on Migration Sizes download this document.
