Upgrade services


Microsoft will stop it’s support for Windows XP, Office 2003 and Windows Server 2003 on April 8th 2014. As a result, no more security updates, not more patches and no more fixes. This could expose your organization to threats from outside; hackers will have a field day if a bug is found in XP and Microsoft does not fix it.

Contact CaribWork-IT to find out how we can help. In some cases we can use current hardware and need software licenses to upgrade to Windows 7 or Windows 8. The same applies to Office 2010/2013 or Windows Server 2008 or higher. But in some cases your hardware does not have sufficient processing power to run these newer operating systems. This all depends on what you have and where you want to go.

Currently about 37% of computers worldwide still use Windows XP and these all need to upgrade before April 2014. A major worldwide endeavor for IT service providers. When will you make the leap to a supported Operating System? Our advice is to start now, or as soon as possible. Especially businesses in the hospitality trade – upgrading your network during high season is probably a bad idea so think about the upgrade during low season.
