Delaying your OS migration deprives your operations of the full support, security, and features set that a modern OS can provide.
What’s Stopping Your Migration?
Even with known security risks, lost device functionality, and significant decreases in operational efficiency, many organizations still have not upgraded their mobile devices to a new operating system. While each company has its reasons for not upgrading, it is because of a few key obstacles in most cases. With the right knowledge and guidance, these obstacles can be easily overcome.

Why Your OS Migration Matters
Both Windows CE and Windows Mobile OS have reached their end of life. Devices running on these platforms will no longer receive security patches, software updates, and other frequent support. This exposes these devices and organizations that continue to use them to various risks, including:
Loss of functionality
Reduced operational efficiency
To avoid these issues, it is essential for organizations to update their devices with modern operating systems.
3 Key OS Migration Obstacles
Every enterprise has its unique reasons for not executing an OS migration. But three common obstacles keep getting in the way of many organizations upgrading their outdated OS.
Organizations are concerned about the downtime that comes with overhauling all devices at once, leading to lost productivity and unnecessary amounts of training.
One of OS migration’s biggest challenges is migrating existing apps to the new OS. While enterprises can rely on their IT staff to recode apps for the new OS, this can be labor-intensive and time-consuming.
Each OS has a unique approach to interacting with an MDM. In some cases, an enterprise may be relying on an older or obsolete MDM platform that will also require an upgrade.
How to Overcome OS Migration Obstacles
In the long run, delaying your OS migration is not worth the risks that come with it, including security breaches, loss of functionality, and reduced operational efficiency. If you’re delaying migrating to a modern OS due to these common challenges, overcoming them is not as challenging as you may think.
