Many Windows XP computers bought as long ago as 2001 and the accompanying Office 2003 programs may still seem to work well enough, even if they lack the speed and features of more recent offerings, so business owners may wonder why they should bother upgrading.
On April 8, 2014, Microsoft will officially discontinue support for Windows XP and Office 2003, which has important ramifications because, as new security vulnerabilities are discovered past that date, they will no longer receive software patches. This could mean big problems for organizations of any size.
Staying current with technology is an ongoing challenge, which Simplex IT will try to help unravel for business owners at its next luncheon when it will address the question, "When Do You Know Your IT is Obsolete?"
The free luncheon takes place Nov. 20 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Hattie's Café, 164 North Main St., Hudson.
