Out-dated operating systems such as the beloved Windows 7, may still be functional but leave your company vulnerable. It is inherently risky to continue running Windows 7 and much safer to migrate to Windows 10 before it is too late.
Well, here we are. Its 2017 and we’re talking about Windows 10 compatibility issues. It wasn’t supposed to be this way.
Furthermore, we’re not talking about the potential compatibility challenges when migrating from an ageing platform like Windows 7, or even moving from a more modern platform like Windows 8.x. These potential application breaking changes have been raised against the migration effort of moving from one version of Windows 10 to a later branch or release of Windows 10.
A few years ago, I founded a company called ChangeBase that developed a software product that helped assess and remediate compatibility challenges when migrating from Windows XP to Windows 7. ChangeBase was originally founded and developed to handle application packaging issues but when our team discovered the potential impact of moving applications from Windows XP to a more secure (by design) operating system – we knew that we could help.
