End-of-life is coming for Windows Server 2003; Microsoft will end extended support on July 14, 2015. Many organizations are waiting until the last possible moment to upgrade, but a smarter strategy is to start planning for migration now. Those who do will reap the benefits of an operating system designed for the age of Facebook, touch screens, cloud computing and other developments that didn’t exist when Windows Server 2003 was introduced.

Join us for an in-depth look at how your organization can use Windows Server 2012 to achieve business goals.

You’ll learn:
  • Why BYOD strategies are easier to implement with Windows Server 2012
  • How enhancements improve security as well as access and identity management
  • Key features that make it possible to reduce the number of man hours spent on management
  • How Windows Server 2012 propels virtualization strategies forward
  • Why IT is looking to the server to simplify application development for the cloud
  • Best practices for planning your migration
