The easy upgrades from Windows XP coming to an end, say migration experts, who predict a number of large enterprises will still be running the Windows XP operating system even after full support is pulled by Microsoft.

Microsoft plans to retire Windows XP from all support, including security patches on April 8th 2014.

“Our studies have shown that large enterprises have made the least progress in migrating from Windows XP to Windows 7, with 64% yet to complete their migrations,” said Betty Junod, director of desktop product marketing at virtualization vendor VMware. Just over 50% of mid size companies have completed the migrations to Windows 7.

Browsium, whose Ion tool lets users run older versions of Internet Explorer inside newer editions of Microsoft’s browser, agreed. “What’s left are the difficult and expensive migrations facing the largest of enterprises,” said Gary Schare, the company’s president and COO.

“Our typical customer is a big, old organization — banks, healthcare, government,” Schare said. “And every single one of them is stuck on its migration” from XP to Windows 7.

It is estimated between 400 and 500 million PC’s will be running Windows XP come the support retirement date next year.
