2020 and Your SoftwareLast Updated: 12/4/2019
We're days away from 2020, the next decade. The number itself has a nice sound to it. As we ring in the new year, we say goodbye to 2019 and welcome 2020 with hope for our good wishes and of course a successful business year. We certainly don't want to start out January with software issues and downtime. You most likely have heard by now that support for Windows 7 operating systems ends in January 2020. What does this mean for the software applications that run your company?
Several solution providers have already announced that their new software versions will not be supported on Windows 7 systems, including SolidWorks and Adobe Creative Cloud. Several other companies are expected to make similar announcements before the end of the quarter due to the security risks that an unsupported Windows 7 will present.
What will happen to your current software? To assist with your migration planning Microsoft has provided a tool for public use to check for compatibility status of current software to Windows 10. The software to consider checking can range from Accounting solutions, Production software, Anti-Virus, VPN Software, and many others.
With the Windows 10 Compatibility Check, you simply enter the name the software and the search results will show all versions of the questioned software and its compatibility status. If you cannot find your software on the list, it does not necessarily mean it is unsupported, the company has not officially released any compatibility data and will need to reach out directly.
