A Business Leaders End of Support Guide For Windows Server 2003

This guide sets out to help entrepreneurs and business leaders, who aren’t technology specialists, answer key questions and what it means to your business.

There is extensive coverage across the IT and business media on the subject of the upcoming “End of Support of Windows Server 2003”. However, as a business leader, it is not always easy to get a succinct view of what this really means, what the potential impacts to your business are and, most importantly, what you should do about it.

As of 14 July 2015 Microsoft will no longer develop or release any updates or patches
to Windows Server 2003. This puts your organization and applications at risk if you continue to run this operating system.

Any new security threats arising after this date will not be addressed, and if your organization operates under regulation concerning the security and privacy of data, you run a heightened risk of becoming non-compliant.
