					WINDOWS 7 IS SOMETHING SPECIAL
ATOS ORIGIN ACTIV7 SPEEDS ADOPTION

Windows 7 is not just another operating system migration. It will act as a catalyst to genuinely new and better
ways of working. It encourages secure and agile collaboration between employees, customers and partners,
working fluidly across different locations, media and devices. Windows 7 helps take these advances into the
mainstream.

As an IT decision-maker, you know better than anybody that in business, migration always needs to be
controlled. You want to get the promised benefits to start paying back quickly, but you also need to guarantee
integration, compliance and compatibility for heritage data and applications.

You will make migration successful – you’ve done it many times before. But first, perhaps, you’d like to get a
real feel of how Windows 7 is going to benefit your organization – of how you are going to sell the business
difference to your company and colleagues.

Let’s get going.
