January 14, 2020 is the official end of extended support for Microsoft’s Windows 7 operating system. Beginning January 14th, Microsoft will no longer provide updates or patches, opening users to vulnerabilities that could easily be exploited by hackers. Estimates say that nearly half of global organizations still use Windows 7. If your company is one of them, now is the time to plan and make the change to an updated Windows version.

Transitioning requires a significant investment of time and money. Planning ahead is certainly needed for an optimal transition process and minimal downtime. Typically, Windows 7 replacement involves a primary Windows 10 device, Office 365 ProPlus, and upgraded business applications. Everything aimed, of course, to maximize security.

Windows 10 is allegedly the final Windows Microsoft will produce.
