April 8, 2014. What does this mean? To most people nothing. But to anyone in IT, they know it as the day Microsoft ends support for Window XP or anyone using Office 2003. Watch our recent episode of ‘Ask SWC’ to learn more about how we are helping our clients prepare for Windows XP End of Life.

Ask SWC Chicago IT Consulting Firm

At SWC, a lot of our clients are still using Windows XP and Office 2003 and many of them do not have a plan to get off these platforms. We’ve worked with a lot of our clients to not just talk about a PC refresh, but also build a deployment strategy and plan for migrating from Microsoft Windows XP to Windows 7 or 8. We want to make sure that we are providing more than just the next generation of operating systems; we want to provide a plan that enhances the organization and provides a seamless transition for users.

If your business operates on Windows XP, SWC offers desktop deployment assessments to help prepare for Windows XP’s end-of-life. We have developed a proven methodology that allows us to identify where your organization’s vulnerabilities are and assist you with choosing the right desktop operating system to support your technical landscape and meet business objectives. Whether it’s Windows 7, Windows 8, virtualization, the cloud, mobile, or a hybrid approach, we’ll help you make sense of it all and choose the right platform or combination of platforms for your business.
