Time For Migration

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.

by Tammy Dozois | 06.23.15

It’s clear that continuing to operate an unsupported server is a great security risk that could have a significant impact on your budget and productivity. But migrating to a new server is also a significant cost—and can be a risky prospect, especially when you’re already behind the ball.

Microsoft Windows 10 in the Office

Microsoft Makes the Move to Windows 10

Virtual Assistant Cortana Is the Killer Feature

by Courtney Taylor | 06.11.15

Microsoft is slotted to release Windows 10 this summer— July 29th. Many people are skeptical of their ambition to create an OS that will function seamlessly across all platforms and devices, especially due to the criticism they received over Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. Microsoft tried to deliver 8 and 8.1 in the same fashion, and I think it’s safe to say that they weren’t exactly successful. The OS itself was laid out very nicely, but is without a doubt optimized for touch devices; trying to navigate the tiles on a non-touch device or even trying to figure out how to shut the device down proved to be a frustrating task (even I’m guilty of not being able to find the darn button!) So what makes Windows 10 different? Read on to find out.
