What is the problem?

We are coming up to quite a risky time for business. Why? Because there are some BIG operating systems and software that are no longer going to be supported, they are too old! This could mean loss of data or opening your company up to the risk of some pretty serious ransomware, malware or virus’.

How did we get here?

2007 was actually a long time ago… The Flight of the concords, were just becoming a thing, Soprano’s was just coming to the end, Von Dutch trucker hats, ugg boots and plaid jeggings hit the scene, Cameron Dias and Justen Timberlake split, Helen Clark was Prime Minister, George W Bush was President, the Nokia 6100 slide, flip phones were still a thing and….the first iPhone was released in the June of 2007. Simply put, technology has changed, and stuff made in 2007 was a LOOONG time ago!

What do I do to get sorted?

  1. Understand the situation fully
  2. Find out what operating system and software you are running
  3. Consider your options to transition by talking to our team
  4. Move on over and stay safe.

There is a lot more to understanding how to move forward than this itty-bitty blog. So… read on for your next piece to the puzzle.
