Citrix XenApp 5.0 upgrade/transition to XenApp 7.5 - Where do I start?

Hi EE,

We are running a small XenApp 5.0 farm with 4 servers all serving up published applications. Most of these servers are running Windows 2008 which come June 2015 will be unsupported by Citrix.

I've been thinking about this a bit lately but don't even know where to start. 7.5 just seems so vastly different from 5.0 - has anyone faced this challenge and come up with a plan or attack or some design ideas on how to deliver similar functionality to our users?

I've registered for a few Citrix webinars coming up which look like they may be right on target for what I'm doing but I've played this game before with Microsoft and the webinars ended up being Sales seminars. I figured I'd try my luck on EE as well.

Open to any and all ideas, thanks guys.
