Using a combination of tools including MAP (Microsoft Assessment and Planning Toolkit), TSG SystemCare and our own Cloud Readiness Assessment, we can help you to fully understand the implications for your business.
Far from viewing Server 2003 End of Support as a frustrating inconvenience, it makes sense to take the opportunity to move to an increasingly modern technology environment.

- hybrid deployment
- full cloud deployment
Depending on the route you choose, you might decide to adopt an opex or subscription-based approach to elements of your technology to spread the financial impact.
