On April 8, 2014, official support for Microsoft’s highly successful XP operating system will end. As business and IT professionals, I’m going to suggest you spend a little time thinking about what this is going to mean for your organization – if you haven’t done so already.

In May, 2012, IDC (International Data Corporation) authored a White Paper with the above title, strongly suggesting that moving to a modern operating system like Windows 7, or even Windows 8, would be a smart idea from several perspectives, not the least of which is financial. As the premier global provider of market intelligence, advisory services, and events for the information technology, telecommunications and consumer technology markets, it’s fair to say they bring a lot of expertise to the table.

You can download the IDC White Paper here. Or, if you prefer, you can choose to watch a 15-minute video presentation by the paper’s author, Al Hillen, by clicking http://bit.ly/XPrisk.

To research how staying with Windows XP might financially impact YOUR organization, you can create and share your own free custom analysis here: http://bit.ly/XPreport. In less than 2 minutes you can generate a free custom report tailored to your organization’s unique requirements.

Of course, when you’re ready to set your upgrade plans into motion, give Simplex-IT a call. We can help walk you through all the licensing options that are available and make the whole process much smoother.
