Just a reminder that you may have some products in your organization that are no longer going to be supported by Microsoft very soon. If you aren’t sure, contact us and we’ll help you come up with a game plan to replace your end-of-life software and the hardware it’s running on. But on the list of stuff you need to watch out for:
- Windows 7 is hitting end of life at the end of the year. So if you haven’t replaced or upgraded your computers to Windows 10, you need to start making those plans.
- Windows Server 2008, 2008 R2 and Small Business Server (SBS) 2011 end of life is coming soon, too. This is a much bigger project than replacing some Windows 7 machines, because your server is the centerpiece of your business network. But it’s just as important to get this taken care of, and we can help.
- Microsoft also has some specific end-of-lifes that are coming up, too, that you may be using in your environment. If you’re not sure, let us know and we’ll look into it. These include:
- Exchange Server 2010
- Visual Studio 2010
- Office 2010 (including all 2010-version Office products, including Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, Visio, Project, etc…).
- Dynamics NAV 2009 R2
Microsoft has a list of all products that are expiring in 2019 (which include SQL 2008) as well as list of 2020 expirations. But if you are concerned about products that are reaching end-of-life (especially in regards to HIPAA compliance), let’s chat.
