The experiences that enterprises had during the Windows XP transition provide some valuable lessons for Windows Server 2003 migration. As with Windows XP last year, many organizations are postponing the shift until they can no longer avoid it. If you’re in this position, read Lane Shelton’s latest article to learn how your company can benefit from the collective experience of organizations going through the last Microsoft migration. For those companies that were behind the ball during the migration from XP, one singular lesson shines through: The support overhead costs of maintaining legacy platforms after Microsoft ceased providing support were massively detrimental to their business.

Windows Server 2003 has been viewed as a secure and bulletproof platform for well over a decade, but the cyber security landscape has changed dramatically over that time—and new threats appear continuously. If your organization is still running Server 2003, read Dave Olivier’s latest article to learn more about the silver lining of server migration – when you upgrade your Windows Server 2003 platforms, you increase security by capitalizing on new software and hardware security capabilities that were heretofore unavailable on your legacy system.

Have you upgraded from Microsoft Server 2003? For some organizations there has been little incentive to upgrade. Others have been struggling with shrinking IT budgets. And many smaller organizations don’t have in-house IT or are completely unaware of the looming EOS date. What does this mean for your organization? Read Camden Haley’s latest article to learn about the risk your organization faces while it continues to operate an unsupported platform.

Migration from Windows Server 2003 has moved from an option to a necessity, as once support ends every system will be at too great a risk of malware attacks and data loss. But it’s not very high on the IT buying agenda for many small to medium-sized organizations, because they’re generally reluctant spending money on fixing something that doesn’t appear broken. If you’re an SMB that finds itself in this precarious situation, read Clive Anthony’s latest article to learn about a number of bottom-line business benefits, in addition to limiting the risk, to help gain support for a server migration initiative.

If you’re planning to migrate to Windows Server 2012, you’re already late. A typical server migration can take 200 days or more for many enterprises, which is a long time to risk exposure to potential security threats. If this describes your organization’s situation, read Dave Olivier’s latest article to learn about some sophisticated tools that are available to help streamline and accelerate the migration process.

Enterprises will face many tough decisions as they prepare to migrate from Windows Server 2003, but the best solution may be the one that’s staring them right in the face. The obvious destination is Windows Server 2012, a system built specifically to leverage cloud computing and other emerging technologies. However it’s not a simple matter to leverage the impressive features of Server 2012, so read Tammy Dozois’ latest article to learn how modern server hardware can help soup up the new server solution.

Too many organizations are trapped in the cycle of spending 70% of their budgets maintaining old equipment. With so much of their budget tied up, they have to pass on opportunities to spur innovation and implement new ideas. They’re forced to do more with less, even when they see great possibilities in things like data analytics, new flash storage technologies, and converged infrastructure. If this sounds like your situation, read Mike Hewitt’s latest article to learn how partnerships with industry leaders, like EMC, can lead to powerful IT solutions.

SMBs with modest IT departments have enough on their hands just juggling day-to-day operations, and upgrading the company infrastructure could seem like an impossible task. But those businesses still running Windows Server 2003 after July 14th – after support ends – will likely experience major burdens on their time anyway. If your organization could use help with your server migration, read Clive Anthony’s latest article to learn about some of the assistance that is available.

Many enterprises migrating from Windows Server 2003 to Server 2012 may be doing so only because Microsoft will cease support for its old server OS on July 14, 2015. For those reluctant enterprises, here’s some great news: A strong majority of businesses that have migrated to Server 2012 report numerous performance benefits. If you’re in the planning stages of your migration or on the fence about the whole thing, read Justin Zuill’s latest article to learn the three most important benefits from migrating.
