Windows-XP No Longer Supported

On April 8th, 2014 Microsoft will be ending support for Windows XP.  This means Microsoft will no longer provide security updates, or other patches to computers still using the Windows XP operating system. With this in mind, companies must have plans for migrating to a new operating system.

Window XP is still used by nearly 39% (over a 1/3) of all PCs. “If your organization has not started the migration to a modern desktop, you are late.” Microsoft warned on their website. If you are part of the 39% and don’t upgrade, by this time next year your PC will be vulnerable.

“Organizations must conduct several analyses on their application portfolios to help safeguard the organization after XP support ends and in preparation for Windows 7 or 8 migrations,” “For critical applications that can run on Windows 7, consider moving these users first. If Windows 7 can’t be used, prioritize these applications and users so that you can move them as soon as possible,” advised Michael Silver and Steve Kleynhans, vice-presidents in Gartner’s client computing team.
