Posted by Tim Stanley on Thu, Dec 31, 2015 @ 05:56 PM


Many businesses have already made the successful transition to the latest version of Windows. This upgrade offers performance enhancements, new tools to boost productivity and greater flexibility with newer apps and technologies.  A Windows 10 platform also allows users to leverage multiple devices and share applications on desktops, laptops, tablets and even smartphones.

Before you make the leap to Windows 10, be sure to consider these points:

  • There are minimum hardware requirements for all devices – these minimum requirements include a 1GHz processor, 1GB RAM exclusively for the operating system, 16GB disk storage, and a Windows DirectX 9 graphics card.
  • Driver updates may be required – be sure to check the drivers of printers, scanners or other devices. 
  • Business software applications – your accounting, sales management, point of sale or other systems should be checked to make sure they are compatible with Windows 10.
  • Certain features will no longer be available – Windows Media Center and Windows 7 desktop gadgets are among some features that will no longer be available with Windows 10.

To make sure your transition to Windows 10 is smooth and seamless, work with a knowledgeable systems integration partner that can help to evaluate your current infrastructure and plan the upgrade with you.
