Prepare for Migration
Windows 11 was released to great acclaim on October 5 2021. Our technical support team have been testing Windows 11 for a few weeks now as well as having great looking user interfaces, it builds on all of the great improvements in Microsoft security over recent years to bring to market to deliver Microsoft’s most secure operating system yet and it’s going to help businesses be a lot more productive.
As the biggest Windows update since 2015, there’s some prep work your business needs to do if you run Windows 10 or earlier and Microsoft 365.
Prepare Your Business For Migration
The update process for Windows 10 users isn’t as straightforward as clicking an upgrade button. There are a number of system requirements that all of your business devices need to meet in order to run Windows 11, as well as some best practice safety steps that you will need to take, including creating recovery drives and backups, to ensure you avoid interruption to your business.
Unfortunately, if your existing PCs or laptops don’t meet the strict hardware requirements – key issues might be that there is not enough free memory, or perhaps your processors aren’t fast enough – you’ll need to upgrade your devices before you can progress to working on Windows 11.
As well as the possible cost implication of new hardware purchases, there is also a global chip shortage that is impacting on the supply chain of technology components and is currently reducing the availability of new computers.
To avoid disruption to your business, you need to plan ahead if you are considering upgrading to Windows 11
