While never as glamorous or as close to the hearts of teachers and students as what goes on in the classroom or during periods of personal study, IT infrastructure in schools and other academic institutions is an incredibly important aspect of the education system. With this in mind we need to remind you that on July 14 2015, Microsoft will be ending support for Windows Server 2003. This means that after this date, Microsoft will no longer issue updates, hotfixes and security patches for any version of Windows Server 2003.
To help you with your migration strategy, Microsoft product specialists and partners are addressing common questions and issues via a series of short webinars. Starting next week (April 13th 2015), the webinar series will cover the reasons and benefits for migrating as well as taking you through your migration options, step-by-step.
Take a look at the series below, share with your colleagues and register today if interested.
