Microsoft released Windows 8 with a bang, but got an earful of feedback from users. Now they are getting ready to release Windows 8.1, which leverages the cloud and provides some improvements to Windows 8. We are not sure what this new version of Windows will be called, so for now we are referring to it as Windows 8.1.
David Dawson, Senior Engineer, shared a preview of Windows 8.1 and discussed how to get your organization ready for it. Some nonprofits may have decided to skip the upgrade from Windows 7 to 8, but will be considering whether they should jump in with Windows 8.1.
Here are some of the questions that will be addressed during the webinar.
o How is Windows 8.1 different from Windows 8?
o What type of preparation and training is required to transition your staff into Windows 8.1?
o What are the costs involved in making the transition?
o How will Microsoft’s shift to more cloud-based services affect your organization?
