Michael Silver and Steve Kleynhans, VP in Gartner's client computing team, recommendations for organizations that believe they're unlikely to complete their migration projects by April 2014 should prioritize their applications and users so that they can reduce the risks by addressing critical resources first.

Gartner defines a critical application, or its user as one where if the application fails or the user can't do his or her job, there could be financial or legal consequences.
