So long, MS Exchange 2003 support. Are you ready to migrate to Exchange 2013 or MS Office 365?

Thomas_Strasser_badge.pngSo it’s over. Microsoft ended its support for Exchange 2003 on April 8.


If your messaging platform is still based on Exchange 2003, you are hosting one of your most critical productivity applications on a product that is no longer supported. This can have a profound effect on your ability to do business. It means no support for any issue that can interrupt your business continuity.


Microsoft Exchange 2003 was launched in September 2003, revolutionizing the delivery of corporate email demanded by the organizations of a decade ago. Fast forward to today, however, and we’re facing a new era of business and end-user demand driven by the consumerization of IT and the response: enterprise mobility. Like never before, requirements like data security, compliance, eDiscovery, mobile device management, BYOD and IT management are dictating our service catalog.


So, what next?


It’s certainly time to look for a new platform which meets the new demands of your business. Exchange 2003 went out of support in April 2014; those customers still running it could be ideal candidates for Office 365 or Exchange 2013 on-premise. HP Consulting has services available for both outcomes and can help you rapidly migrate to a secure, supported platform. Check out these brochures to see what HP can do for you:
