(Please see Server 2003 EOS, Part 1 for background)

Well, folks, the Server 2003 EOS is just 167 days away as I type this in late January…  What is the “EOS” you ask?  I’m glad you asked…

I just finished presenting the first part of our 4-part webinar series, “The Windows Server 2003 Comfort Trap”.  Part 1 is called “Foundations”, and you can watch it at this link, and its also embedded below in this page. I go into pretty good detail about what the EOS is, why you should be concerned, and some tips and approaches to help you get started in preparing.  

So grab some popcorn and cocoa, and watch the movie!  It’s only about 33 minutes long, and might just be your first step in getting yourself out of the Comfort Trap!

Update: By the way, the other Session can now also be seen here:

Thanks to all that attended the live webinar!  And thanks to all those that pointed out that I have the wrong date in the first slide… I promise to have that fixed for the next session.  😉

Speaking of which, in the upcoming sessions in this series, we’ll be bringing on other special guests from Coretek to tell their stories and give great insight into the areas which are their strengths.  I know I’m looking forward to it!  See you then…

FARMINGTON HILLS, MICH., – January 21st, 2015 – Coretek Services, one of the leading IT consulting and systems integrators, announced that it will host a webinar series to help organizations evaluate the benefits and challenges of making the transition from Windows Server 2003 before Microsoft discontinues its support in July 2015.

This means come July 14, 2015, Microsoft will no longer provide automatic fixes, updates, or online technical assistance – which could leave your organization susceptible to harmful viruses, spyware, and other malevolent software that could result in loss of proprietary information or even bring down your system.

Each 45-minute webinar in this series will expose attendees to the benefits of migrating away from Windows Server 2003, toward more modern, supported operating systems like Server 2012 R2 or Cloud-based servers.

Attendees will learn firsthand the advantages of migrating early that the consultants at Coretek Services see every day in their work in organizations both large and small.

Sessions will cover the following topics and take place on the following days:
