Is it Time to Upgrade Your Workstations?

It seems like every day there is a new gadget or software that promises to make our lives easier and more efficient. With these advancements coming out of the woodwork every few months, it can become overwhelming and easier to just say “I’ll wait on updating”. However, with the ever-growing list of innovations our world is taking with technology, not taking a proactive approach might spell danger for you and your organization.

In just the last month, we saw Microsoft pull the plug on support for Server 2012 operating systems, leaving organizations who don’t have a strategic IT plan in place exposed to cyber security threats and an increase in downtime due to compatibility issues.

Cybersecurity threats are becoming more sophisticated and frequent, and older technology is not equipped to handle these new threats. Updating IT assets ensures that you have the latest security measures in place to protect your sensitive data and prevent cyber-attacks. Here at Sundog, we recommend creating a proactive IT strategy that includes a plan to update your IT assets ranging anywhere from your staff’s workstations to your server every 3 to 5 years.


Updating your equipment is more than just a cybersecurity risk issue; by having outdated equipment, you are opening up more possibilities in downtime for your staff. With an update to your IT assets, you are improving your staff productivity and efficiency. Newer technology is generally faster and more efficient, saving your staff time and your organization money in the long run.

Not to mention the bonus of an improved user experience! New technology is known for a modern look and feel, keeping things minimalistic in order to make you feel more organized and in control of your workflow. With your staff having an improved user experience, you can increase their overall satisfaction and loyalty in your organization.
