Flipping the Windows 10 panic on its head!
Turning panic to business opportunity
I’ve read so many articles on the panic to move to Windows 10…. in fact we’ve published a few ourselves! So, it got me thinking about trying to swing the message from ‘panic stations’ to ‘how to turn this into an opportunity’.
Current estimates indicate that 60% of big businesses are still to move to Windows 10 and 86% of organisations are yet to complete their migrations. So, where’s the good news story for those who are still to migrate?

So, rather than panic that Windows 7 end-of-life is near and you have yet to migrate to Windows 10, by taking on-board this and the learning of others you can turn the panic on its head flipping it to business opportunity.
