The Fastest Growing Version of Windows is??? XP?

February 11, 2014Leave a reply

What BetaNews thinks of Windows8

In January new installs of Windows XP outpaced new installs of Windows 8! Which, on it’s face, seems odd. Windows XP is 14yrs old, it’s “End of Life” is April 8, 2014. And more people are installing XP than Windows 8. Don’t believe me? Check out BetaNews for the raw info.  This is telling us something important about what people really want their computers to do for them, the acceptance of the software lifecycle, and just how bad a product Windows 8 really is.  Of the latest version of Windows8 BetaNews states it’s “A Frankenstein Product Stitched Together With Compromises“.  Not good.

What to do?  Keeping XP around isn’t a real solution.  With no more security updates that would be like walking into a lions den with a steak and a bottle of BBQ sauce instead of a whip and a chair.  And, Windows8 isn’t looking all that good either.  Or, is it?

The biggest problem with Windows8 is that it isn’t WindowsXP, or Windows7 (Vista doesn’t count, it’s so bad it’s worth totally ignoring).  But, back to the main issue, how do we make Windows8 as comfortable to use as XP, or Windows7?

Totally doable if you have the people that know how to do it!  You don’t have to engage in risky behaviors (keeping XP) in order to have the ease of use, solid performance, and low learning curve.  All you have to do is make Windows8 behave like Windows7.  And that is something OPENRSM can do.  With no extra costs, no extended configuration time, and little to no visual change in how you do things on your computer.

You need to upgrade yourself out of the WindowsXP trap and keep everything you like about it.  OPENRSM can do that.  IT is a Process, Not a Project.  “Let OPENRSM manage this process for you.

 

 

 

 

Factory Installed Maleware In Your Computers?

July 28, 2011Leave a reply

An intresting article came out yesterday in the blogs at Hewlett Packard about Malware, Viruses, etc. and the threat of them being “built in” to the computers and peripherals you buy.  And just what a threat it is.

Which brings up an interesting situation for businesses and the liability they may incur as a result.  For example, what would happen to your business if suddenly all your customers data (stored on your business systems) was being sold to identity thieves?  What if it was discovered that your systems contained Malware that enabled the breach of security?  How much money, time, effort, and manpower would it take to figure out what was going on with your computers?

Which is why OPENRSM humbly suggests that you need us to manage your systems and security for you.  Being proactive includes screening hardware and software systems before they’re installed in your business.  That takes a level of expertise and experience that you and your company simply don’t possess.  And why should you?  Your the experts in your own industry.  Let OPENRSM come in and audit your systems (For FREE) and provide you with a comprehensive report on the overall health and security of your network, a list of suggested maintenance, and a security review.  It won’t cost you a thing.  We’ll do it for free just so you can see how OPENRSM employs it’s “I.T. is a Process, Not a Project” approach and show you just how cost effective it is to not have computer issues.

Take a look at the HP blog HERE…  It’s an interesting read.

 

OPENRSM Unleashes ITaaS

June 20, 2011Leave a reply

Feb 28, 2011 – (Kansas City, Feb 28, 2011) OPENRSM (the Kansas City IT Company) has launched IT-as-a-Service (ITaS) targeting SMB customers. ITaS integrates hardware, networking and applications — Accounting, CRM, Data Integrity, AntiVirus, Office Applications, and more) — on the cloud and is available on a pay only for what you use basis.

“Customers may need a single application, some additional computing power, deploy an application of their own, or an upgrade to their entire IT Infrastructure”. They would also “get to use a variety of business applications, or their own existing applications, without integration or management headaches”, said Scott Medlock, CTO of OPENRSM.

OPENRSM has leveraged upon its years of business engineering and implementation experience with it’s existing Kansas City SMB customers to deliver a flexible, reliable, and scalable cloud service for those business customers to not only reduce cost, but to help increase productivity and profitability. While most Cloud Services are delivered on a temporary ad-hoc basis. OPENRSM’s ITaS Service is delivered as an integrated platform to enhance, extend, and reduce overall IT costs for it’s customers. The company also said that most third party solutions were targeted for large customers and did not meet the needs of small and medium sized businesses.

OPENRSM has crafted a platform especially for the SMB market that provides “Big IT Resources for SMBs”.
