It was back in 2009 that Windows 7 became available, quickly becoming a stable, reliable and user friendly operating system for home and business users alike.
That all comes to an end next January, when Microsoft will stop supporting the OS. That means an end to security updates too, meaning computers running Windows 7 could quickly become tasty targets for hackers and criminals.
Microsoft are about to start pushing out notifications to machines running Windows 7 to advise users that they need to prepare for change.
Any user running a Windows 7 computer needs to start thinking about an upgrade, but businesses in particular need to act now.
It takes time to carry out an inventory of computers and software, take backups, train users and begin migrating to a new system. It can also be quite expensive if you’ve got quite a large IT estate, so planning now will help you take upgrades into account when it comes to budgets.
We can help you with all of this, and we’re already in the planning stages for some large whole network upgrades so please get in touch today.
