OS Migration for the Enterprise

OS Migration

You’re not alone – mobile OS migration is no small feat for any organization.

Enterprise organizations across the world are facing the same dilemma – end of life support for legacy Microsoft operating systems. Integrating a transition plan to a modern mobility platform for multiple devices and operating systems across your enterprise can be both daunting and expensive.

The good news? You don’t have to do it alone, and it doesn’t have to be difficult, disruptive to your daily operations, or costly. Carlton Technologies is here to empower you with the technical expertise and savvy to turn the complicated OS migration into a seamless transformation that can actually improve productivity, increase efficiency and drive profitability throughout your entire organization.

At Carlton, we offer unparalleled customer service, with a technical support team educated and trained to stay fluent and knowledgeable in current technological advancements. This expertise is passed on directly to you. We can guide you through this complex transition, helping you make well-informed decisions about how to best support your enterprise environment, saving you time, money and frustration. With Carlton, you don’t have to do an OS migration alone.

Running a successful, efficient and productive enterprise environment comes down to three critical factors:

  1. Seamless device integration
  2. Extended lifecycle management
  3. Infallible security

So how do you achieve these critical components, given the loss of mainstream support and the precarious nature of patches, new releases and erratic support coverage? Carlton has the solutions that can support your transition to the right mobility platform and help you mitigate security vulnerabilities and ensure stability and cohesion across your organization.

Mobile enterprise environment customers demand longer usage lifecycle from their mobile devices – up to five years longer than the average smartphone user. This has a huge impact on your OS migration strategy.

Given its large market share and extensive ecosystem of apps, developers and VARs, Android has evolved as the prevalent operating system for workforce enterprises, and for good reason. There are three vital reasons Android is the smart choice for your OS migration plan.

1.) OS Migration Security

Android delivers the highest level of security by deploying application isolation and exploit mitigation techniques. Users can also implement lockdown techniques through mobile device management or Honeywell Enterprise Launcher to further reduce the risk of malware intrusion. This gives you control over what the user can do and what apps can run on the system.

2.) Added Features 

  • Bulk provisioning to speed device setup
  • Device owner mode to allow fully managed devices at the corporate level
  • Encryption enabled by default to protect personal and corporate data
  • Always on VPN

3.) Compatible Hardware

Selecting the right hardware is crucial for a successful OS migration. The best choice is hardware that can support multiple operating systems, like the Honeywell CN75 and CK75 Series or the Honeywell CN51 mobile computer. With these mobile devices, you can choose either the Windows Embedded Handheld platform or Android, and Windows Embedded Handheld devices can be converted to Android at a future date. This allows existing legacy applications to continue running until your entire enterprise is ready to transition to Android.

We promised that you would not have to go through this transition alone. At Carlton Technologies, we offer the best enterprise mobility products and solutions on the market, coupled with world-class customer support.
