Recently we heard a news that when Microsoft announced that they are going to withdraw its 12 yea old Windows XP, it brought frowns in the foreheads of top world banks who were adapted to Windows XP. Upgrading their entire system to a new version of Windows cost enormous and hence they offered Microsoft extra bucks a much as $100 million per bank to increase their operation until they could complete their upgradation procedure. While most of top world banks are still afraid of the new GUI of Windows 8. One bank of Japan made the giant leap from Windows XP to Windows 8.
Microsoft held a press conference where it announced that Resona Holdings recently upgraded 30,000 terminals from Windows XP to Windows 8 platform and this move is one of the biggest achievements for Windows 8 which has been a controversial platform otherwise.
Tetsuya Shiratori, the executive officer and general manager of Information Technology Planning Division at Resona Holdings, said:
“We decided to migrate straight to Windows 8, and we had no opposition to taking advantage of the latest products to boost efficiency. In addition to the cost savings resulting from standard Windows 8 functions and the great usability, including boot speed, we also managed the whole migration operation with unprecedented speed through using System Center 2012 Configuration Manager.”
