XP Remediation

Image represents a major effort to upgrade Windows XP computers.

Background:

You may have heard the phrase around DENR, "XP remediation".  The phrase refers to recent and urgent need to replace computers running Windows XP with supported desktop software.

Purpose:

Microsoft has provided support for Windows XP for the past 12 years. On April 8, 2014, technical assistance for Windows XP will no longer be available, including automatic updates that help protect your PC. Microsoft will also stop providing Microsoft Security Essentials for download on Windows XP on this date. DENR IT is working with the State Office of Information and Technology Services to ensure that our state computers do not become more vulnerable to security risks and viruses.

Progress:

Our IT staff have worked hand in hand with divisions to determine the total need of desktop replacement. Many divisions have already worked to purchase new computers to address this situation as well as ageing hardware in general.

Key Numbers & Dates:

  • Total XP Remediation Required: Approximately 630 machines could be upgraded and 804 machines must be replaced.
  • Total Accomplished: 501 machines are on the current block purchase with potentially 226 to be added for this purchase.  We are just beginning to upgrade machines so the count is negligible.
  • Target Completion Date: All machines are to be replaced and updated by 12/31/14.

The lead for this project in DENR IT is John Harrison.  If you have any questions you should refer them to John or your IT Steering Committe Liaison (see here for a list).
