We are now a further month closer to the cessation of Windows XP and Office 2003 which will happen on 8 April 2014. If you or your business are running Windows XP on any computer or laptop then it is important to address the end of support issues now to prevent potential security risks later on.
In the first instance it is worth considering the following questions:
- How many of your company’s computers run Windows XP?
- Can those computers run newer versions of Windows?
- Where is your data stored?
- Is there any software running on the old computers that will not run on a newer version of Windows?
Asking questions like these are vital to understand the scope of the work involved in replacing Windows XP in your business. We understand it can all be a bit of a ‘headache’ but we can help. By taking action now you will potentially save yourself a lot of time sorting much bigger issues at a later date.
