    Hi everyone,

    We've had more than a few questions in the community on device migration, so I'm excited for the next live Q&A we have scheduled! On September 19th from 1:30 - 2:00 p.m. CT, @Mike Gonzales and @Brad Hodges from Baylor University will share their time-saving tips for using Code42 for moving end-user data, immediately following the 7 Questions to Answer Before Starting Device Migrations webinar that they will be co-hosting. The magic will happen in this very discussion thread.

    You'll have the opportunity to chat with Mike and Brad directly, but if you aren't able to attend in real time, please share your questions in this thread and we'll ensure that they get answered.

     Need a few prompts?

    • What are your questions about upgrading your users to Windows 10?
    • What are your questions about handling user settings and profiles during migration?
    • What are your questions about deploying an in-place or wipe-and-reload migration?

    Anything else? What are your questions around device migration?

    Thanks again to @Mike Gonzales and @Brad Hodges for co-hosting the webinar and sharing your Windows 10 migration story. We have a few questions that were submitted through GoToWebinar. We would love to hear your answers in this thread:

    Q1. Can you tell us more about Power BI and how you use it in your environment?

    We pull out Code42 data using the Code42 API, and drop it into a database hosted on campus.  Then we connect into that database with PowerBI and create dashboards.  Another nice feature is a sortable table.  There's also a natural language Q&A feature in PowerBI that will create graphs dynamically.  Here are a couple of pictures of the dashboards we've created:

    Question submitted by Jimmy at Central OK:
    Could Baylor give a list of the types of problems that Code42 fixes as compared to the MDT/USMT?

    ​One of the main benefits of using Code42 over just MDT/USMT is that we have Code42 backup the user device every 15 minutes.  With this, if the user is at home working on some presentations or documents, we still have the ability to capture those files.  This allows us to have the user be on any network and still have the ability to setup their new device from a backup.  Also by having the restore and files stored in the cloud it reduces the amount of storage and network bandwidth that is required for this process.  We have had real good success with this for devices that were lost or stolen when a user was traveling as well.

    And a comment submitted to the webinar manager from Minda at Dickinson - "on our back-up settings, we include everything everything inside the user profle so on restore all their settings and licenses also get copied back."

    The nice thing about using Code42's integration with USMT is that it decouples user settings from your backup selection, so that if you find an app that has problems when overwriting AppData files on a restore, you don't have to increase the complexity of your backup selection.

    How much time do you save, on average, for new PC deployments?

    Our installations technicians had a pretty streamlined workflow already, but I'd say it cuts down the average time in the user's office by about 15 minutes over a manual checklist.  That doesn't factor in time savings from a more consistent workflow that reduces follow-up with our help desk and other technicians.
