Deploying Office 365 Pro Plus?

Don’t Forget Project and Visio

by Lane Shelton | 11.02.15

I’ve been reading on Technet and other blogs about co-existence issues between MSI and Click-to-Run installations of Office 2013 products. Can’t say for sure if this will continue when Office 2016 comes out, but if I had a nickel…I’d say yes. It seems probable due to the way that click-to-run (C2R) technology works. Most organizations have Project and Visio out there, but when you’re moving to Office 365 it’s easy to forget about them. All the focus is on setting up Cloud IDs and dealing with Office. But if you have users that will be on Office C2R, you need to also plan for their Project and Visio too. Here’s why.

Windows 10 Updates and the Enterprise

What It Could Mean in Practical Terms

by Lane Shelton | 08.04.15

Windows 10 represents a significant evolution in the relationship between deploying the Windows OS and licensing the Windows OS. We’ve already seen other major changes to Windows licensing: the introduction of the user-based subscription, the ability to purchase an upgrade license to Windows Enterprise without the need for Software Assurance—and there are more changes to come. One of the most significant changes specific to Windows 10, however, is the way you’ll be consuming updates. Until Windows 10, there’s always been something of a dividing line between security updates and features updates. Security updates are quick and ongoing, while the features updates are rolled into big groupings—and deploying those is usually a heavy lift for IT.

As organizations increasingly require access for a growing number of mobile devices, new workloads are required on back-office servers to integrate tablets and smartphones with existing applications, files, and functions. Organizations still running Windows Server 2003 may find they are unable to support the mobility functions that end users now demand to maintain a competitive edge.

By the time you read this, the July 14, 2015 deadline for the end of support for Windows Server 2003 may have already passed, leaving millions of servers around the world in limbo. End of support means open season for hackers and malware writers, safe in the knowledge that there are no more patches coming to repair new security holes.
