As of April 8, 2014, Microsoft will officially end support for Windows XP SP3 and Office 2003 products. Has your organization migrated to newer platforms?

Microsoft’s Support Lifecycle Policy stipulated that products would be supported for 10 years after their initial release. Now that the 10 years are almost up, users must migrate. Remaining on unsupported versions of Windows and Office could expose organizations to risks associated with security and compliance as well as a lack of independent software vendor (ISV) and hardware manufacturers support.

If your organization hasn’t planned and implemented a migration, the time to start is now. That’s where MDI Group comes in. With more than 25 years of IT specialization and experience, we can provide you with the additional consultant resources needed to make your migration as seamless as possible. Our highly qualified IT professionals will help get this critical task done to ensure that you’re not left unsupported and at risk.
