Written answers (Question to Employment)

My Department utilises a wide variety of computer operating systems and associated services across its extensive ICT desktop and server environments. The number of Windows 7 operating system devices across the entire network is 11,010 and consists of desktop PCs, small factor PCs used for video conferencing and laptops.

I am advised that the project to upgrade and replace the Windows 7 operating system on these devices is well underway and will complete during 2020.
