Time's running out for your Windows 11 Upgrade (and Windows 12 is right around the corner)

Time's running out for your Windows 11 Upgrade (and Windows 12 is right around the corner)

The Countdown has started

The clock is ticking…Microsoft plans to end support for Windows 10 by October 2025. This means that failure to upgrade to Windows 11 poses a serious threat to corporate cybersecurity as you will not have access to software updates.

In this blog, we'll explore the urgency of making the switch, the common challenges businesses face, and how InnoVent's innovative solutions can make the transition smooth, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly.

The challenge to upgrade to Windows 11

Many businesses in the UK have yet to embrace Windows 11, and various factors contribute to this delay. One significant obstacle is hardware limitations; Windows 11 mandates a minimum of an 8th generation processor, 4 GB of RAM, and 64 GB of storage. Budget constraints also play a role, as the cost of upgrading both software and hardware can be a limiting factor for a business.

Another factor influencing the delay is the familiarity businesses and their employees have developed with Windows 10. The transition to Windows 11 poses a challenge for end-users as they must adapt to the new look and feel of Windows 10.
