Looking back at the past decade, it is easy to see how technology improved our lives. We have transformed our agencies with mobile technology, data analytics, GIS mapping, and a whole host of innovations. But what happens when these technologies stop working for us and start working against us?
How many hours have you wasted dealing with technical difficulties this year? How many times did you miss a deadline because your system was down? How often did a cyber attack throw a wrench in your productivity?
You’re not the problem, your outdated technology is. In order to do your job, you need a system that is both reliable and secure. That’s why it’s so important for you to know that on April 8th, 2014 Microsoft will end support for Microsoft XP.
In order to continue to leverage essential technologies, agencies must upgrade to Windows 7 or Windows 8. This upgrade is essential for ensuring that your technology is working for you, not against you. A system without support means less security and more disruptions, forcing resources away from mission critical projects.
With an upgrade your agency will see:
- Time lost due to technological difficulty reduced by 90%
- 137% return on investment
- Mission critical time saved by as much as 20 days per year
Our infographic (Download the PDF) looks at the ROI, time saved, costs, and related factors to help make the business case for upgrading. It’s clear the time is now for agencies to upgrade. The infographic below is your first step to building you business case - and an important step to protecting your agencies data and resources.
