How are you going to prepare for the Windows CE and Embedded Mobile End of Life?
Major enterprises are facing a new critical decision: How to prepare their handheld devices for a major operating system (OS) transition. Microsoft has been gradually ending support for Windows CE and Windows Embedded Handheld.
What does Windows End of Life mean exactly?
Well, it means that devices running these operating systems will no longer receive Windows security patches or software updates—which will leave your devices vulnerable to viruses and malware, and you won’t be able to add any new applications to those devices.
Here are the official end-of-life dates for these systems:
- June 10, 2018 – Windows Embedded CE 6.0
- June 9, 2019 – Windows Embedded 8.1 Handheld
- January 14, 2020 – Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5
With these dates quickly approaching, it’s time for enterprises across the nation to begin creating a transition strategy for nearly 15 million enterprise devices dependent on a Windows legacy OS.
How are you going to make the transition if you’ve been dependent on these devices for so long?
