Windows XP End of Support. What does this mean for me?
April 8, 2014, marked the End of Support for Windows XP and Office 2003. We’re sure you have questions.
What does “End of Support” actually mean?
After April 8, 2014, there will be no more updates or support for Windows XP and Office 2003. These products were released over 10 years ago, and have had free updates over that decade.
Progression is marked in the laptop market by smaller and slimmer models. However, in the stationary workplace, there will always be a value put on to what is commonly referred to as 'screen real estate'. A large screen provides you with a larger space in which to view more of the document or file you you working, this is beneficial for some industries but redundant for others.
Our recent office move really brought to the forefront what we already knew about the strength of cloud computing for a businesses' growth, sustainability and security.
Here's 3 ways The Cloud really showed its worth during our office move:
1. We had no downtime.
At your business's conception.
If you are in the process of starting a business or putting together your IT infrastructure, it would be wise to consider the cloud as an option. The cloud is instantly scalable, meaning that you evade the initial set-up and IT maintenance costs associated with a new business. As well as this, all costs are predictable so you aren't caught short when your business is at it's most vulnerable.
When your server-system collapses.
The subject of security is often raised as a get-out-of-jail-free card when in a discussion or debate about the numerous benefits of Cloud Computing. The fact that The Cloud is used by both US and UK governments (and even recently the CIA) does not seem to budge people's misconceptions on the subject - cynics are quick to point out that government data is often leaked or lost.
Research has shown that over 90% of businesses are considering moving some, if not all of their IT to the Cloud.
The benefits are too compelling to ignore and for this reason we have devised a list of the Top 10 Benefits of moving to the Cloud. We’ve stuck to the commercial benefits of moving and put it in a language that any FD or MD will understand and appreciate.
