Organizations still using Windows XP faced with security & support issues as Microsoft retires application.

2013 Microsoft Learning Partner of the Year - Finalist

Those organizations that want to switch to the software supported Windows 7 or Windows 8 for operating efficiency or security issues can do so with confidence with the right training that gets the system upgrade quickly and effectively

In the light of Microsoft’s decision to retire Windows XP after 11 years in the marketplace, organizations need to be thinking about upgrading their operating systems to Windows 7 or Windows 8. NetCom Learning, the leader in business and IT training, can make the transition seamless with the training your staff needs to have the system functioning optimally as quickly as possible. NetCom Learning was recently selected as 2013 Microsoft Learning Solutions Partner of the Year finalist and in 2007 received the Microsoft Learning Solutions Partner of the Year award. The organization can provide top training in Windows 7 and Windows 8 in a variety of training solutions such as standard training, boot camp training, and customized training. All these solutions can be delivered in traditional classrooms, on-site training or Live Online from anywhere.

“Those organizations that want to switch to the software supported Windows 7 or Windows 8 for operating efficiency or security issues can do so with confidence with the right training that gets the system upgrade quickly and effectively,” said Russell Sarder, CEO of NetCom Learning. “With training from NetCom Learning, organizational management can rest easy that their IT staff will be able to transition the operating system with ease and quickly utilize the full functionality of the Windows 7 or Windows 8 operating systems,” said Sarder.

Reasons to Switch Now

It is estimated that Windows XP is the operating system for more than 39% of the computers operating on a worldwide basis, which, according to Reuters, translates to 500 million people across the globe with XP running on their computers. Come April 8, 2014, those operating systems will no longer be supported by Microsoft. This means there will be no more security updates for Windows XP from Microsoft and no further software support. This leaves organizations still using Windows XP with a variety of possible business implications including compliance issues, security risks, and possible down time when there are issues with the operating system. Windows 7 and Windows 8 also offer major improvements in the operating systems in terms of flexibility, productivity, mobility, and security providing employees with the operating systems that allow them to accomplish more and be more productive and efficient. This efficiency and new functions can help grow a business through improved customer support and new options in organizational communications and the sharing of information.

NetCom Learning offers savings programs which provide different options for both organizational and individual clients to economically obtain the training they need.

  • Learning Voucher Pass is available to help organizations and individuals manage their training budget on a per day basis.

Your Course Registration = One Child’s Education

The Love of Learning program is all about helping children to further their education, a goal which is close to the heart of the company's CEO Russell Sarder. NetCom Learning has partnered with BRAC USA to create this program that gives back to the community. The Love of Learning program is also a central part of the company's purpose to promote lifelong learning. The funding for the educational program comes from NetCom Learning donations based on the number of prepaid class registrations.
