The key to becoming a modern business

With Windows Server 2003 end of support* rapidly approaching it’s now time to consider the next steps for your business.

Dave HelmIt’s not just about upgrading your Server 2003, it’s about becoming a modern business that allows your business to grow and develop, outperform your competitors and helps you to create the flexibility to work anywhere whilst retaining productivity and efficiency.

What defines a modern business you may ask? Well, it can be anything you want it or need it to be – from desktop to mobile, server to cloud – it’s a choice for you to have a flexible solution to suit not just your business today, but as you grow and develop in the future.


As the saying goes, people do business with people, therefore the ability to connect with others quickly and efficiently is vital to not only building meaningful relationships, but also to identify potential opportunities. Imagine if you were able to immediately identify and visualise your data anytime and anywhere, you would be able to gain direct insight allowing you to act on opportunities there and then, making you one step ahead of your competitors. With solutions such as the cloud, you can get up and running in no time, scale up or down as needed, and avoid high capital costs—paying only for what you use.

Working together

On-the-go working is now common practice in many businesses and that’s why a solution that allows the ability to work with files and data remotely is essential. Imagine the benefits and the productivity of your team working together even when they are apart. Sharing files, information and ideas with uninterrupted access will not only save time and money, but will ultimately improve working relationships and team efficiency.

What’s more, you can improve your work platform flexibility to suit the various roles and responsibility of your employees by giving each, only the storage they need, when they need it – without paying a fortune for expensive storage solutions.


Are you worried about your data getting into the wrong hands when your staff are working remotely? Becoming a modern business allows you to reap the benefits of built-in security features. Your staff will be able to gain access from anywhere, while providing you with peace of mind that your sensitive data isn’t stored on mobile devices that can be lost or stolen.

Modern working builds resiliency and recovery capabilities into its products and technologies, from server software to the cloud, to PCs and devices, so if disaster occurs you can get your business back up and running in minutes with minimum delays or disruption.


You can get more from your investment by choosing a tailored solution to fit your unique requirements, budget and future growth plans. You can now store your data with flexible data storage, grow efficiently by getting the most out of the latest technology, and adapt to changes that happen by being one step ahead.
