With the deadline of July 14th 2015 fast approaching and the average Windows Server taking over 200 days to migrate now is the time to start the process. Now is the time to act - you must start planning migration now.

End of support for Windows Server 2003 means:

No updates - 37 critical updates were released in 2013 for Windows Server 2003/R2 under Extended Support. No updates will be developed or released after end of support.
No compliance - lack of compliance with various standards and regulations can be devastating. This may include various regulatory and industry standards for which compliance can no longer be achieved.
No applications support - Many applications will also cease to be supported, once the operating system they are running on is unsupported. This includes all Microsoft applications.
