As Kronos continues to revolutionize their Workforce Central application, newer versions are starting to be released more frequently. The long awaited, completely Java-free WFC 8.0.11 was released just last week. Organizations are being forced to consider upgrading as the new upgrades put older versions in risk of “Sunsetting.”
Sunsetting: The Sunset Factor refers to the age of your Kronos Workforce Central version. The older the age of your version, the higher the risk of limited technical support. The longer the upgrade is delayed, the more the potential grows for complications from workarounds associated with supporting outdated versions. In some cases, vendor support will even end, and a concrete “point of no return” sunset date will be set.
If your Kronos application remains at a sunsetting version and encounters a serious complication, there may be no vendor to work with the outdated system, leaving your organization exposed.
