We’ve all heard about the recent announcement by Microsoft to stop support for Windows XP by April 2014. While the announcement is not a surprise, it does usher a long list of questions and concerns for CIOs across the globe. It’s a no-brainer that all organizations will need a migration strategy in place – may be many CIOs have already planned for it – but the key question remains is whether Windows 8 is the only (and best) option for orgs?
In an effort to decode the impact of this announcement on organizations, my next blog piece will offer some measures and next steps for CIOs. But before I do that, I’m keen to engage with senior IT decision-makers that are either currently grappling with this issue or planning to launch a project to manage this situation.
Once I hear from you, we will organize for a 30-minute interview to cover some of my key questions. Just to share, we are looking at conducting these interviews over the next week. It goes without saying — but it’s best when said — we will honour all requests for confidentiality and will send you an email to let you know when the blog has been published.
Please leave a comment with your contact details or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
