New Software Inexpensively Solves the XP problem

HAXTUN, Colo., Aug. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- PrairieIT announces a new software product that brings new life to Windows XP computers. The product, PrairieConnect, turns existing XP PCs into high performance web-based, cloud computers.

IT professionals have been grappling with what to do about Windows XP going out of support.  While many have chosen to buy new Windows 8 PCs, the truth is many existing XP machines are still in good shape. But they can't be upgraded to Windows 7 or 8 and they can't continue to be used as XP machines because they are susceptible to viruses and hackers. Since most PC usage is web-based, whether accessing company portals, Google docs and apps, or other web-based apps, a web-based computer makes a lot of sense. PrairieConnect takes an existing XP computer and turns it into a fully-functioning web-based (or cloud) computer. 

Mark Oman, founder of PrairieIT says, "There are some 500 million XP computers still in use around the world. They all have to be upgraded to a new solution or face the ever growing onslaught of hackers and viruses. PrairieConnect is that solution, transforming those aging computers into useful, productive tools for your business or organization."

Oman, an ex VP at Agilent and Hewlett-Packard, and his team at PrairieIT  went to work to make a simple, easy to use solution to the XP problem.  "We developed the software to help us with our XP problem and then decided that everyone could benefit from this simple, inexpensive solution. IT professionals in SMB, non-profit, educational, and government environments will find this a perfect solution for what to do about XP."

PrairieConnect is software that connects existing PCs to the web to run all your web-based apps, such as Google Docs, Gmail and GoogleStore. OpenOffice is also included for off-line document creation and editing. CIOs report this as an excellent way to extend the life of their XP computers without any of the issues of maintaining an OS that is past its End of Life.

PrairieConnect is available for download at www.prairieit.com. The free trial download is fully functioning and does not have a time limit. PrairieConnect costs $10/seat, with no seat license required. 

About PrairieIT: PrairieIT provides software solutions that transform aging computers into useful, productive PCs.  Located on the prairie of Colorado, we bring the values and entrepreneurial spirit of the prairie to bear on today's high tech opportunities.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
