Summer 2018 has kept M-Tech exceptionally busy with projects across the country. With Windows 7 and 8.1 already being out of Mainstream Support, there’s been the pressing need for schools and businesses who haven’t already, to update to Windows 10. Combined with this, we’ve been implementing upgrades from Windows Server 2008 and 2012 to Windows Server 2016 and configuring software to comply with the GDPR.
A round up of one of our summer 2018 projects: Villiers High School
Villiers High School in Ealing educates over 1000 secondary age students. During the 2018 summer break, Villiers had a project to refresh their estate with around 300 new computers. This gave the school the opportunity to roll out Windows 10 and benefit from the many additional features of interest to them.
M-Tech helped to design, configure and deploy an environment that could manage, maintain and fully support Windows 10. The technical solutions company upgraded the Windows Server Domain Infrastructure to the latest version and commissioned MDT/WDS to deploy Windows 10 to all desktops and laptops. Group policy objects for users and devices were also created based on the school’s requirements to enforce settings for end-users and simplify the overall experience of switching to a new Operating System (OS).
“We are very happy with the service received from M-Tech Systems; they clearly explained all of the processes that were required over the scope of the works and helped to adapt changes that we wished to make. The consultant who carried out the majority of the works was very professional and offered excellent recommendations that aided us in our deployment of Windows 10. M-Tech were very thorough with testing and helped resolve any issues that we faced during and after implementation.”

Thanks to the systems put in place, the secondary school is now able to save time through automated OS deployments and have a more secure environment that is up to date with current standards.
