Dump Windows 8 Now?

A Rollout Delay May Benefit You in the Long Run

by Jared Bisbano | 07.28.15

Gartner recommends that enterprises dump Windows 8.1 deployment plans, even if that means delays. According to Gartner analyst Steve Kleynhans, “It is likely that Windows 8.1 will suffer a similar fate to Windows Vista, whereby industry support died off relatively quickly.”

Simplify IT

With VMware Workspace

by Tony Dancona | 07.20.15

Today, I want to shine the spotlight on VMware Workspace. With Workspace, all of your apps, all your file content, virtual desktop, and apps from all different places can now exist in one location—and you can easily access them by logging into an HTML browser. Workspace is simply a great tool where end users can easily access corporate files and applications in one central place.

Workspace is customizable, which means administrators can make it reflect everything about your brand. Your color, even your logo can be customized. And this is just the beginning. Read on to learn about other key VMware Workspace features.

Don't Leave Your Business Unprotected

It’s Past Time for a Windows Server 2003 Migration Plan

by Dave Olivier | 06.30.15

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. Sadly, legacy servers may be ill equipped to handle new threats, and organizations should seek server upgrades to protect both hardware and software against attacks. The plain fact is that when Microsoft ceases distributing security updates and patches for Windows Server 2003 software on July 14, it will become more expensive to secure legacy servers than to upgrade them for most companies.

Compliance and Risk: The Time for Migration Is Upon Us

Upgrade Your Server Strategically to Avoid Penalties

by Camden Haley | 06.26.15

Of the nearly 9 million Windows Server 2003 systems still running as of last month, it is estimated by security firm Bit9 that about 2.7 million will still be chugging away after July 14, 2015—the official and final end of support (EOS) date for Windows 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? In a word, risk.

Upgrade Economics: Windows Server 2003

Delaying Your Upgrade to Windows Server 2012 Only Hurts Your Bottom Line

by Justin Zuill | 06.25.15

What is the cost of doing nothing? If your business is still using servers running Windows Server 2003, that cost may be substantial—and growing. In the dozen years since Windows Server 2003 debuted, the world has seen huge strides in both the hardware and software that comprise business IT. Processing power has continued to obey Moore’s law by doubling about every 18 months, and there have been two versions of Windows Server to supersede Windows Server 2003. On July 14, 2015, the official end of support (EOS) for this venerable workhorse finally arrives.
