US Firms Struggling with Windows XP End of Life

January 23, 2014 / Evolve IP

A surprising number of US firms will continue running Windows XP after the end of life (EOL) cut-off this April, a survey for cloud services firm Evolve IP has found. Some planning upgrades will use the cloud and virtualisation to rationalise their PC infrastructure going forward.

Evolve IP looked at end of life issues in 1,070 US firms, for the most part mid-sized businesses that have had trouble giving up their XP habit for a variety of reasons, including money, time, compatibility problems with old software and a lack of technical resources.

It found that 77 percent were still running XP with a surprising 60 percent unable to complete migration before the deadline on 8 April. Even more striking, 45 percent said that between 10 and 30 percent of their machines were running the OS which underscores the scale of the problem they face.
