Operating systems (OS) are the backbone of many small businesses. Migrating to the latest OS allows employees to work more efficiently and bring more ideas to life, giving businesses the opportunity to gain a competitive advantage. Windows 8,  Microsoft’s newly launched operating system, offers small businesses new benefits such as advanced anti-virus protection (Windows Defender), better mobility (Windows on the go) and faster system recovery and recycling (PC refresh).

Benefits aside, many are still wondering when to migrate, how to plan for the switch and what it takes to successfully adopt a new operating system.
