Messaging Platform Solutions
You Don't Have to Be Afraid of the Upgrade
Messaging Platforms receive updates at a fast-paced tempo, as vendors try to provide you with the latest, most innovative features. Unfortunately, that can create challenges for organizations that don’t have a solid upgrade strategy in place. Currently, Microsoft only supports two versions of their messaging platform. At some point in time, you will need to upgrade—or risk paying huge fees for custom support agreements. For some organizations, a migration might involve moving from one version of Exchange to another. Other organizations might need to migrate from a competing product, such as Lotus Notes. Regardless of your situation, you will most likely face a messaging migration challenge in the near future—driven by licensing complexity, resource constraints, limited expertise, and demands to keep operations running without interruption. No matter what your upgrade needs are, we are here to help.
Plan Your Next Step Now to Maximize Productivity
How long can you postpone an upgrade? Not very long if you want to keep employees productive, your data secure, and your organization on par with industry peers. Operating a supported version of Exchange is ideal for organization-wide productivity—and critical for overall security. A supported platform delivers the sophisticated technologies to protect your data privacy and reduce your security risks, and ensures you have contemporary toolsets that integrate with the latest versions of your other software products.
The good news is that a little planning up front can help you reap big rewards later on. Dovetailing security into your productivity solutions will enable you to bring anything to the network—including smartphones, notebooks, desktops, or tablets—enabling productivity from anywhere. These enhancements require investment, but the productivity dividends for your teams are huge.
