Staff Development
A commitment to an Evergreen landscape means not only an adaption of your operating systems but an adaption of your staff to these systems. Through Virtech led staff training initiatives, your staff are empowered to continually develop their abilities ensuring they too are always up to date with your systems.

The Evergreen Journey

We take organisations on a journey which builds on the relationships Virtech has developed with our customers over the past 20 years. Prior to Windows 10, Microsoft released new versions of Windows every few years. 

This traditional deployment schedule imposed a training burden on users as the feature revisions were often significant. That schedule also meant waiting long periods without new features. Virtech's Evergreen approach is a long-term solution to the implementation of Windows 10, creating an unburdened adaptable environment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Most IT departments are managing a diverse IT landscape that can be partially on-premises and partially in the cloud. Amidst constantly evolving business requirements, IT Teams are tasked with reducing costs and the time required to deliver change to End-Users. Without going Evergreen, adaption to change for IT Teams is unachievable, costly and time consuming.

Microsoft’s sustained vision with the OS is to deliver “Windows-as-a-service” through smaller, more frequent updates that gradually evolve the OS over time, eliminating the need for a hard refresh.

Massive legacy IT infrastructure and business applications are not only costly to maintain, they are also inflexible and hold your organisation back from adapting to the constantly changing environment in which you operate. Organisations that fail to stay up to date and ever ready, aren't able to prioritise their resources toward customer experience, adding to a greater disadvantage against competitors.

Evergreen IT provides organisations with all the benefits that come with perpetual migration and stock management. Just as with agile, or lean software development, the roll out process is much shorter and more frequent than with the traditional process.
