End of Windows 7 Support - Capito

Support for Windows 7 ends on 14 January 2020

With this deadline looming, you really can't afford to delay your migration to Windows 10 any longer. 

With just a few months to go, there is still time for most organisations to migrate to Windows 10 and beat the deadline - and we can simplify this process for you. 

Get in touch with a member of our team to find out how we can help you avoid the usual pitfalls with this vital upgrade.

Risks of not upgrading to Windows 10

Windows 7 has already reached the end of mainstream support but Microsoft will pull the plug completely after 14 January 2020, meaning that you will no longer receive crucial security updates after this date.

This loss of protection means that your business will be vulnerable to viruses, malware and other significant security issues.

These malicious attacks could also expose sensitive information, which could leave you in breach of regulations such as GDPR.

How can Capito help?

We work with our customers to provide a controlled and stable migration project. Our process-driven methodology ensures that we deliver your upgrade in a controlled manner, providing stability and continuity throughout your migration to Windows-as-a-Service.

Our EasyStart Service has been designed to make your Windows 10 migration easier and to ensure you are on the right track.

Our first step is to carry out an initial discovery of your environment and applications. We have a team of highly skilled Microsoft consultants who can run a workshop with you, which includes a Windows 10 Readiness Assessment, utilising Microsoft’s Assessment and Planning Toolkit (MAP).

At the end of the workshop we’ll provide you with our recommendations, outlining your path to Windows 10 and helping with your migration every step of the way.

Whether you simply want to make a smooth transition to Windows 10 or want to use this as an opportunity to modernise your infrastructure, Capito can get you there.

Other reasons to move to Windows 10

Windows 10 will be the last ever version of Windows. Microsoft’s new approach to deploy, update and service the operating system is known as Windows as a Service (WaaS). Windows 10 will continue to change and evolve but you can expect feature updates and improvements over time instead of a new OS version.

In addition to security protection, Windows for Business offers business customers:

More control: Windows 10 integrates into your existing infrastructure, with features such as Azure Active Directory Domain Join that allow you to create and enforce network, user, group, and device policies to align with business needs.

Stay connected: Windows 10 enables your business to connect with customers, partners, and suppliers. Users can bring their desktops with them virtually anywhere, regardless of device. Simple, single sign-on to an organisation’s network gives users easier access to shared data and devices.

Stretch hardware investments: Business devices are designed for business, with security and features unmatched by consumer devices. Many come with more durable components, longer warranties, and better support options to help protect the business' financial investments.

Devices can grow along with a business: You may not need or use every Windows 10 feature today, but as your business grows, so will the complexity and the stakes. Getting devices with Windows 10 Pro now sets customers up with the right technology for successful business growth. These devices can be quickly networked, updates are more easily managed, and you also get the extra security and peace of mind that systems and data are protected.


You can also manage your technology more efficiently with Windows 10, including Mobile Device Management, Azure Active Directory and Enterprise Mobility Suite.
