Does your business operate using Windows XP?
Windows XP was a very popular choice for businesses upon its launch in 2001. However, from April 8th 2014, Microsoft will not release any security patches for Windows XP as it has reached end-of-life. It will still run, but your organisation will no longer be compliant or supported.
Things to consider:
- Compliance – Retail & PCI, Healthcare & HIPAA
- Cost of supporting the desktop infrastructure based on Windows XP
- Planning – assess your current environment NOW as to start planning for best fit OS & devices
Cloud Business has put together a 4 step XP upgrade plan for businesses to follow, in order to take the pain out of the XP end-of-life. We appreciate you will need to assess, plan, look at your current environment from machines and programmes to user experience – so we have taken this into account with our XP upgrade plan, which includes:
1 – XP upgrade workshop: half a day consultancy on your current environment, output: a recommendation report
2 – Based on our recommendations choose to migrate or upgrade to Windows 7 or 8
3 – As part of this decision, choose your devices, OS, support deal and payment option (lease or purchase)
4 – Your business is now either migrated or upgraded, running new machines and a new operating system
