Plan your Windows 8 transition

It is wise to carefully plan any transition and test a new configuration before using it as a critical piece of your business systems.

MYOB recommends you:

  • Consider the timing of any transition carefully – do you need to move to Windows 8 immediately? Do you really need to be among the first to move to Windows 8? Would it be better to wait until others have proven the way forward?
  • Experiment with Windows 8 on a PC not critical to your business – you should be satisfied that all the software and device drivers you depend on work with Windows 8
  • Only make the move to Windows 8 after you have verified that migrating to Windows 8 will not interfere with any of your key systems.
  • Ensure your machine meets the recommended specifications for Windows 8.

This is the approach many corporations and governments take to ensure there is no risk to their vital business systems.

Windows 8 has been extensively tested by Microsoft and MYOB. However today’s PC is a complex combination of hardware and software from a variety of sources and no one can be 100% confident that every single combination will work with Windows 8 in every circumstance.
