What to consider for your Windows 11 migration
Upgrading an operating system is not as easy as clicking a few buttons. The new software may run on your existing hardware, but you need to confirm this is true. Here are a few considerations that we can help you address in preparation for Windows 11 implementation:
Hardware compatibility – Sometimes the software is not compatible with your computer’s processor or other system components. Newer hardware may provide the opportunity to take full advantage of the new security features. We can run diagnostics on your current setup to see how well it will work.
Trusted Platform Model (TPM) – You must make sure you have the right TPM so that Windows 11 can boot properly. The TPM is a chip that will not let Windows load if the right password is not entered. The good news is that most computers have a TPM that will be compatible with Windows 11. Our job is to help make sure nothing stands in the way of the upgrade.
Privacy and security concerns – Windows 11 has certain security requirements to run properly – namely, license and user parameters. Furthermore, a new system may be vulnerable to attack, and security improvements are a must. We can help you identify gaps and address all requirements, so you are best prepared for implementation.
Compatibility with external systems and clients – You need to make sure you can continue working with those outside of your immediate business. Most computers run the mainstream applications that can translate between each other. However, our job is to find problems with older apps and make sure everything works smoothly.
Migration of your existing business data – The last thing you want is to have a brand-new operating system with none of your data on it. Failing a data backup can set you back months. Let us help you save your business data during the upgrade.
If your current computer systems don’t meet these requirements, you will have to wait until they are supported by Windows 11 and thus miss out on new productivity features. Otherwise, you will have to purchase new hardware (which may not be your first choice but may be worth the investment in the long run). We can evaluate your computers to help you make the right move.
