Windows 7 end of life

Windows 7 Migration

With Windows 7 approaching the end of support deadline, it’s time to get cracking on upgrading your organization to Windows 10.

You may be aware that Microsoft has announced that extended support for Windows 7 will cease in January 2020.

It is estimated that up to 30% of businesses are still using Windows 7 so they should be actively planning to upgrade.

What does end of support mean?

If you continue to use Windows 7 after support your system will still work, but may become more vulnerable to security risks, viruses and cyber-attacks as Microsoft will cease providing software and security updates.

How can Novem help?

The good news is that Novem can help you migrate your Windows 7 System to Windows 10.  In most of the things that really matter to your business – speed, security, interface ease, compatibility, and software tools—Windows 10 is a massive improvement over its predecessors. And as a Microsoft Partner, we here at Novem offer full scale migration services and can help your business upgrade outdated systems and infrastructure to meet your requirements.

Will I be impacted?

The end of Windows 7 will impact your business regardless of if you make the move to Windows 10 or not. For those that don’t heed the warnings and don’t want to make their staff more productive we wish you good luck in your business endeavours.
