How to transition Your Windows Mobile
and Windows CE Devices to Android
Like millions of companies and users, OPI customers will soon face a major decision in 2020 when Microsoft cuts support for their Windows Mobile and Windows CE OS. Many will use this as an opportunity to rebuild their applications for greater speed and efficiency. OPI is here to make this transition easy and painful for its customers.
STEP ONE: Which Industrial Mobility OS is Right for You?
Right now there are over 15 million enterprise devices dependent on a Windows legacy OS that will need to make this decision.
You can choose to stay with Windows or move over to Zebra’s Android. A Windows to Windows transition will require a complete software rebuild. Which is why so many enterprises are choosing to go with Android.
Key point: Android is currently at 80% market share of the mobile market. It is best positioned to become the dominant mobile OS in the industrial setting.
Understanding the benefits and limitations of each OS is important before moving to the next step.
STEP TWO: Select an OS Migration Expert
Find a service provider that understands your business needs and has a proven track record with OS migration.
Note – OPI has strong migration credentials.
Take the time to communicate clearly the needs of your company and ensure your provider understand your expectations. It may be a cliché, but don’t be afraid to ask questions.
STEP THREE: Plan for the Future
Take into account your company’s future and growth. This migration is not just a short-term solution. Consider your company’s needs in 5 years, 10 years. It’s often easier to plan for a solution that can grow with your company rather than scramble to keep up with your company’s growing needs.
STEP FOUR: Assess the Skillset of Your Team
Depending on the size and industry of your company, you may already have employees with skills in this field that you can leverage. Having a consultant like OPI with mobility and migration expertise is a big plus for your operation.
STEP FIVE: Take a Quick Inventory of Your Hardware
What is the condition of your hardware devices? This may account into the budget and timing of your migration. Can you stay with the hardware you currently utilize for the next few years? Are you overdue for an upgrade? The OS you choose must rely on the hardware you depend on.
STEP SIX: Create a Detailed Project Plan
Enterprise OS migrations impact all company employees whether directly or indirectly. Preventing and planning for any issues that may come up during the migration process is crucial. It may be useful to sit down with your core team and discuss any issues that may come up internally during migration.
As this migration will involve multiple team members, the project plan should clearly state who is responsible for which task. It’s important for everyone to have clearly defined roles and deadlines so that a single individual holds no one up.
STEP SEVEN: Make OS Management Easy
Technology is ever-changing. With updates being pushed out on a yearly, sometimes monthly basis, the new skill set of today is adaptability. Make sure that you have a strategy in place for maintenance of your devices and new OS. If you work with a great service provider, you will always be able to come back to them with questions or additional assistance.
