The presentation explored the complexitiesand cost implications that banks must consider when planning the migration oftheir ATM estate to Windows 7. This migration is necessary since Microsoft plans to stop supporting Windows XP as of April 2014.

With this deadline, Microsoft will no longer providesecurity updates and patches for Windows XP systems creating an uncertain environmentATM security. Mr. Korala also presented mitigating strategies for those banksthat do not plan to migrate to Windows 7 prior to the deadline and will continue to operate Windows XP based machines.

Key questions addressed include:

What key features are provided in Windows 7?

How much will the migration to Windows 7 cost?

Why not move to Windows 8 instead of Windows 7?

What does Microsoft’s decision to stop Windows XP support mean for banks?

Can banks continue to run WindowsXP on their ATMs indefinitely? 

Also included in the presentation is an assessment of the results of the ATMIA Migration Readiness survey, which collected the views of 73 respondents with regards to their current situation prior to migrating to Windows 7.

Earlier this year, KAL became the first ATM company to declare its products certified for Windows 8 – just one week after the new operating system was officially launched by Microsoft.
