Apple released the High Sierra operating system on September 25, 2017. Ventura Tech strongly advises that clients wait before upgrading to High Sierra.
Operating Systems are the core of a working computer, and even with thorough testing by Apple, issues are being reported. There are many software and hardware options in the marketplace, making it challenging, if not impossible, to test all possible configurations. In addition, there can be a delay between the OS release and software application updates. In the case of High Sierra, there have been reported problems with business applications such as Adobe Cloud, Google Drive, Filemaker Pro and others. In some cases application companies may not support High Sierra at all. For example, Microsoft announced that they will not support Office 2011 in High Sierra. Users will need to upgrade to Office 2016.
As a general rule, in a business environment where applications are critical for day to day operations and ultimately the bottom line, Ventura Tech recommends waiting, at a minimum, till the first major update after the initial release before upgrading a system. It's also a good idea to confirm High Sierra compatibility of any mission critical company application prior to an upgrade.
