Microsoft Upgrades Affecting Business

A number of major Microsoft business critical applications are nearing end-of-life and new upgrades are imminent including SCCM, Client and Server Operating Systems, Office and Exchange.

Microsoft Systems Management Server (SMS) 2003 is no longer supported. SCCM 2007 version has reached end-of-life and will no longer be maintained after July 8, 2014.

SCCM 2012 Upgrade Advantages

In addition to avoiding typical end-of-life technology business risks, a Microsoft SCCM 2012 upgrade offers several advantages.

•  SCCM can increase user satisfaction and reduce costs by creating an enterprise-ready App Store with work flow and orchestration.

•  SCCM manages virtual desktops the same way that it manages real desktops; by providing asset management, usage, and desired configuration management.

•  SCCM provides mobile device management for ActiveSync enabled mobile devices (iPhone, Android, Windows Phone 7) including PIN enforcement, remote wipe, and added inventory.

•  SCCM reduces costs through accurate license management and allows companies to right-size their Microsoft spend.
