The migration to Windows 7 is one of the most important technology challenges to face the ATM industry in recent years. Not only is the upgrade a must, it should be undertaken soon.
LOUISVILLE, KY (PRWEB) November 11, 2013
Microsoft Windows XP has been the backbone of ATMs and other customer-facing technologies for years. But in April 2014, the software developer will no longer support the product. For deployers who don’t upgrade to Windows 7, the next generation operating system, that means increased security threats, costs and downtime.
To address the need and practical considerations surrounding the key upgrade, ATM Marketplace, the leading online provider of news and information about the technology and business of the global ATM industry, has released the Windows 7 ATM Migration Guide.
The report, written by veteran technology writer Robin Arnfield and edited by ATM Marketplace editor Suzanne Cluckey, explores:
- Mitigation strategies and planning
- Key advantages to Windows 7
- Necessary hardware upgrades
- Network certification
- How major manufacturers are handling the upgrade
“The migration to Windows 7 is one of the most important technology challenges to face the ATM industry in recent years. Not only is the upgrade a must, it should be undertaken soon,” said Cluckey. “This guide gives straight, clear information on the whys and hows of making the change.”
