Next Tick Tock! Six Good Reasons to Migrate Your XP OS-5 Next

Hardware device drivers have stopped supporting Windows XP. It’s not just the expiry of extended Windows XP support that companies need to worry about. Many new applications, such as Microsoft Office 2013, will not run on XP; it is also becoming common practice for independent software vendors to no longer support new versions of their applications on Windows XP. Those already headed off into the sunset include many printer drivers, which stopped supporting XP at the end of last year, and the likes of Intel and Dell, who ended Windows XP support a few months ago.

Tick tock. Six months. That’s equivalent to 181 days; 4344 hours; 250,640 minutes; or 15,638,400 seconds. Are you counting the days until extended Windows XP support expires on April 8, 2014?

If you fall into the 18 percent of companies that Forrester Research Inc. has identified as not having yet migrated from Windows XP, read on. Stop your inertia. It’s not too late. Here are six good reasons, identified by Sumir Karaya, CEO of 1E, to migrate your operating system now.
