BayArea Systems (www.BayAreaSystems.com), premier Information Technology (IT) consulting provider in San Francisco Bay Area, is on the forefront of providing cost-effective IT outsourcing solutions for small businesses.

Bay Area Systems is providing small business owners in the San Francisco Bay Area assistance with Microsoft's end-of-support for Windows XP; as well as offering Windows 7 and Windows 8 upgrade and migration solutions.

Starting April 9, 2014, Microsoft will no longer release updates to Windows XP, and neither will provide Microsoft Security Essentials for download on Windows XP. Windows XP has been running since 2002, and well served the purposed for the past 12 years. As both hardware technology and software capabilities grew tremendously in those 12 years, small business owners can take significant leap forward by upgrading to Windows 7 and even Windows 8.1 by utilizing much faster CPU from Intel and AMD, larger memory capacity, and best of all, solid state drive (SSD) technology to allow new computing power to help businesses operate faster and more effectively. Microsoft released Windows 7 Operating System in late 2009, and it has been a proven platform with much improved stability and capability. BayArea Systems also have much experience testing Windows 8 and 8.1 workstations and tablets. Bay Area Systems have been at the forefront of testing Windows 7 and Windows 8, and is providing expertise, advice, and consultation on upgrades and migration of workstations from Windows XP.

For small business owners, computers and applications are most often mission critical to the business operation, accounting, and communications needs. Each major upgrade or migration must be carefully and thoroughly planned out, with questions such as whether the existing application will function on the new operating system, how sharp is the learning curve on the user interface and operation, how to quickly get working with the basic functions, whether the new operating system will integrate with current networking environment and servers, and sometimes how to customize items to make operations look familiar with customer's previous setup. In addition, critical communication components also include VPN client software, remote desktop connectivity, security such as anti-virus and anti-spyware, all need to be addressed and considered before a company-wide deployment.

Bay Area Systems have fully tested and deployed Windows 7 and Windows 8 solutions to solve customers' growing needs for new, powerful, advanced computing systems both on laptops and desktop workstations. BayArea Systems will provide careful and thorough analysis of customer's current information technology (IT) infrastructure, generate roadmap to migration, and point out potential issues and/or obstacles.

The combination of cutting-edge, professional services of BayArea Systems, along with experience and knowledge of most current as well as previous Windows operating systems, including Windows Server operating systems, provide our customers with a powerful tool in keeping office computing infrastructure in top shape, with smooth interaction both inside and outside the office, secure access to critical office data, and ease of transition into the latest and greatest technology, which directly translate into increased productivity, greater efficiency and effectiveness in communicating with colleagues and clients, and provide a positive experience and return on investment.

Microsoft Corporation is a multinational computer technology corporation that developed the Windows 7 and Windows 8 operating systems.

BayArea Systems LLC has become a pioneer in providing customized technology solutions that are efficient, cost-effective, and improve bottom line of small businesses.
