Windows XP SP3 and Office 2003 Support Ends April 8 2014


What Does End of Support Mean? 
  
In 2002 Microsoft introduced its Support Lifecycle policy based on customer feedback to have more transparency and predictability of support for Microsoft products.


 


As per this policy, Microsoft Business and Developer products, including Windows and Office products, receive a minimum of 10 years of support.


 


Windows XP SP3 and Office 2003 will go out of support on April 8, 2014, if your organization has not started the migration to a modern PC, you could be too late. The average enterprise deployment can take 18 to 32 months from business case through full deployment.


 


Ensure you remain on supported versions of Windows and Office and begin planning and application testing immediately.


 


After April 8, 2014, there will be no; new security updates, non-security hotfixes, free or paid assisted support options or online technical content updates.


 


Running Windows XP SP3 and Office 2003 in your environment after their end of support date may expose your company to potential risks such as Security & Compliance Risks and Lack of Independent Software Vendor (ISV) & Hardware Manufacturers support.
