Best Practices for Migrating from Windows XP and Protecting PCs not Migrated Before XP Support Expires
The clock is ticking on Windows XP support. With Microsoft ending support for Windows XP in a few months, migrating XP systems to Windows 7 or 8 is essential to ensure security and performance of your systems. However, most organizations find migration to be a drain on time and resources. And many will be unable to migrate all of their XP systems before Microsoft support for XP ends in April, 2014. Will your organization complete its XP migration before the end of Microsoft support?
According to a July 2013 survey by Dimensional Research, only 37 percent of the surveyed companies had completed their migration from Windows XP, and more than half of the 63 percent that were still in the process of migrating did not anticipate completion before April, 2014. The same survey also found that reimaging and redeploying a single PC with a new OS took more than an hour for most organizations (73 percent).
