Is Your Microsoft Software Putting You At Risk?
Windows Server 2008 R2, SQL Server 2008/2008 R2 And Windows 7 End-of-Life Support Looms. The Time to Act is Now!
Support for Microsoft’s SQL Server 2008/2008 R2 and Windows Server 2008/2008 R2 end on July 9, 2019 and January 14, 2020, respectively and support for Windows 7 ends January 14, 2020. These dates signal the end of regular patches and security updates for any new viruses or security problems, leaving your systems and data exposed and vulnerable to new and emerging security threats. Unfortunately, many business leaders are unaware of the serious implications of these looming events—the potential damage to profits, privacy and reputation through security breaches of unprotected infrastructure and applications.
Let OET Advisors’ Help You Turn End of Support Into Strategic Advantage
End of support absolutely requires action, but that action can build for the future. While there is still time, companies have the opportunity to take stock of their infrastructure and software landscape to develop a technology plan aligned with strategy. Taking a proactive approach to determine the best next phase of the technology journey is straightforward. There are three steps to the process—discovery, assessment and roadmap development. Through discovery, existing data sources, applications and dependencies are uncovered and documented. Assessment identifies the status of the systems identified during discovery in terms of their compatibility with infrastructure and the current versions of SQL and Windows servers. With a solid understanding of the current technology landscape, the most important phase can begin. How will technology support the strategic vision of the company going forward? That’s where OET Advisors’ expertize shines. Let our Managed Services pros expertly guide you through the process and turn this hurdle into competitive advantage.
