Following customer feedback we have conducted a series of reviews of Windows 7 with regards to introducing full native support for our desktop suite of products (Talis Alto, Talis Assure etc). We have investigated the impact of the Operating System changes as well as examining ways in which our desktop product suite can be installed on Windows 7 without any software changes in the short term.
We have also conducted a Windows 7 customer survey – and we thank those who took part. This survey concluded that only a small number of customer are planning to migrate to Windows 7 over the course of 2010.
Balancing these survey results with our current development priorities we have decided that for the summer 2010 release of Talis Alto (version 5.1) will be not making any software changes for Windows 7 support. However, for those customers who are moving to a Windows 7 environment this year we will be publishing a set of guidelines in July which will make recommendations on how to install Talis Alto and other products and to explain any issues with running the full suite of Talis Alto applications under Windows 7.
If you have any feedback or comments on this, as always, we welcome your input.
