Keeping Up with Microsoft

How You Can Benefit from Their Accelerating Product Update Schedule

by James Nagurney | 10.09.13

When it comes to releasing new versions of its products, Microsoft has largely stuck to a predictable pattern. Recently, however, it’s become clear that Microsoft has shifted gears. In 2012, we experienced a wave of new releases that left no major product untouched—activity we haven’t seen in almost 3 years. Now it appears that the next 12 months and beyond will see a similar rate of change. Windows Server 2012 R2, SQL Server 2014, Lync 2014, System Center 2012 R2, and Visual Studio 2013 are all expected to be major releases (ie, not free service packs). New Office “Gemini” apps will be available in 2014 in the Windows Store, and Microsoft is hinting at a new Windows desktop OS every year. Read on for 3 benefits you can expect from Microsoft’s need for speed.

by Lane Shelton | 09.23.13

Microsoft has announced a new licensing program called the Server & Cloud Enrollment (SCE), which will launch in November 2013. As you may expect, there are many things to consider: new options to explore and evaluate, changes to existing programs to think about, and pricing changes to understand. To give you a better picture of the coming changes, we’ve drawn up an SCE white paper, which outlines what to expect with this new enrollment.
