Windows 10 readiness workshop

Upgrade to the most secure Windows ever

Workshop overview

With Windows 7 reaching end of support in January 2020, upgrading to Windows 10 is a sensible option.

It’s the most secure Windows release ever with built in internet protections and a firewall, it safeguards your business against viruses, malware and ransomware.

It also comes with a whole host of new functionality, including the ability to synchronize your phone and desktop. Plus, as we move to a Cloud centric world, where you can get ‘anything as a service’, its beneficial to have a strong platform that can flex with your future technology innovations.

However, if you’re still reeling from a painful Windows 8 upgrade and the idea of upgrading to Windows 10 gives you chills, then why not register for a readiness assessment workshop?
