It’s no secret that migration tools, specialized applications for enabling system refresh and Windows deployment, are critical to the success of a rollout. With that in mind, I found this report in Microsoft Certified Professional to be concerning:
” There were 29 percent of respondents that said they had lost data using Microsoft’s tools [USMT] vs. 11 percent that said they lost data using the newly purchased tools. Similarly, 27 percent using Microsoft’s tools reported that applications did not work after migration vs. 10 percent using newly purchased tools.”
It even shocks us that users are reporting 10% breakage on commercial tools. What tools they are using we know not, but its clear that they are not using the best tools.
