Upgrading to Android from Windows CE

Microsoft support of Windows Mobile Operating Systems will end in 2020. Organisations running Windows-based rugged devices today will need to select an alternative OS, acquire new devices and re-write their Apps before Microsoft support ends.

Planning is the key to success, and OPI can help. To accomplish this you need to:

  1. Assess your mobility apps
  2. Determine your migration goals for each app
  3. Choose the new OS for each app
  4. Determine the best migration approach for each app

Don’t wait! Contact OPI today to begin the upgrade process! We can help reduce the time, cost and risk involved.
