Microsoft Features ICONICS' Future-proof Software in Summer 2014 Prime Magazine


Microsoft ended support for Windows XP on 8 April and, by now, most of the risks are fairly well known. With the lack of critical updates, computers are more vulnerable to viruses and attacks, which will become even more frequent in the long term. Many manufacturers underestimate how much an operating system does to protect them from such attacks.


When Microsoft ended support for Windows XP, many other vendors, such as ICONICS, announced a similar strategy to retire XP support. Now, when there are issues with the operating system or application, support options are greatly limited. This may lead to downtime and less efficient plant operations. 


Manufacturers should see the Windows XP end of life announcement by Microsoft as an opportunity, rather than a problem. When an operating system is retired like this, organisations have the chance to move forward and future proof their applications for years to come.
