Windows 7 End of Life is Coming
Time to Start Planning
All good things must come to an end, even Windows 7. After January 14, 2020, Microsoft will no longer provide security updates or support for PCs running Windows 7. But you can keep the good times rolling by moving to Windows 10.
What does End of Life mean?
End of Life means that Microsoft will no longer release any security updates or patches, and security flaws that hackers find will not be fixed. Even with security software installed, your computer will be vulnerable.
What does this all mean to my business?
If you still have Windows 7-powered computers at your office, you need to start making plans to replace them and budget accordingly. While those systems will continue to work after Windows 7 reaches end of life, you’re putting you and your business data at risk if you continue to use them.
What about my business software?
Windows 10 has been around for quite a while, and many main-line business apps have been running fine on it for quite a while (the new versions of all the various Microsoft, Adobe, Autodesk, and Intuit apps, for example, all work fine). But you should check with your crucial business application vendors to confirm compatibility as some specialized applications may need to be upgraded before you can commit.
