How to Prepare for Windows 7 End-of-Life


Others will work with an IT Managed Services Provider (MSP) like TeamLogic IT to responsibly tackle the transition head on. Here are a few steps you can take to ensure a successful move.

1) Identify all machines that need to be upgraded or replaced, including legacy systems, which may be a messy patchwork of old code and time-worn add-ons.

2) Prioritize upgrades and develop a budget and timeline.

3) Assess security implications, including whether measures are needed to isolate critical systems from Windows 7 machines that can’t be updated.

4) Plan your employee training program, including session content and leaders. Finally, ask your MSP about the new Windows as a Service (WaaS) model, which Microsoft has introduced to minimize the upheaval of future OS upgrades. Upgrades are no slam dunk.
