Looking to Upgrade Windows XP, Office 2003 & Exchange Server 2003?

Posted by Darren Pico on

If your business is still running on Windows XP, it may be a good time to upgrade your systems. As of April 8, 2014, computers running Windows XP will no longer be actively supported by Microsoft, ending its run of 12 years. This means that if your business is running Windows XP, it will no longer have automatic updates to keep your systems up-to-date and secure for the future.

End of Support Windows XP

What Does This Mean for XP Users?

Computers can continue to use and still work using Windows XP without support, however, it will become more vulnerable as new viruses and security risks arise. As more hardware and software manufacturers continue to update and optimize for newer and more recent versions of Microsoft’s operating systems, a larger and larger number of devices and programs will stop working on Windows XP.

What Options Do XP Users Have?

With support to Windows XP ending, users will have two options that they can take in order to move forward. The first options users have is updating the Operating System to their old computers. The problem with this option is that your computer may have aged and may no longer be optimal.

The second options that users have is purchasing an entirely new computer. Getting the latest hardware as well as the most up-to-date Windows and Microsoft Office will help keep your business modernized and allow everyday tasks to be simplified for more efficiency. There are many other perks that come with upgrading to Windows 8.1:

  • Critical aspects are brought together for your business and allow for a consistent experience across a variety of different devices from your home to the office.
  • Achieve greater efficiency with Windows 8 devices: light & faster, touch for intuitive and ease of use, longer battery life, and more!
  • Productivity increases with Office 365, allowing access to applications from nearly anywhere.
