2 Objectives for Win2k3 EoS / Enterprise Modernisation Identify Existing Risks in ApplicationsReduce Risk ExposureReduce Financial ExposureLeverage Newer CapabilitiesReduce Time to Value of ServicesSimplify the Environment
3 Why? Organisations have an Application Transformation Challenge, still The Traditional Destination has evolvedOrganisations are going BiModalRisk vs Cost – what’s your preference?What’s your exposure?What are we hearing that is relevant to youGeneral ThemesSpecific Role Viewpoints
4 Going Bi-Modal Fast Twitch AND Slow Twitch Agility Revenue, Brand, Customer ExperienceAgile, KanbanEmpirical, continuous, fail fasterStartups, small, short term dealsGood at new and ambiguous projectsBusiness-centric, customer focusedShort – (days, weeks)GoalValueApproachGovernanceSourcingTalentCultureCycle TimesReliabilityPrice for PerformanceWaterfall, V-ModelPlan Driven, Approval BasedEnterprise Suppliers, long-term dealsGood at conventional process/ projectsIT Centric, customer removedLong – (months / years)
5 Win2k3 EoS / Enterprise Modernisation – Common Themes Again, we’ve just done this on the desktop!!Our solution works as is, why change it?We don’t need any help, we’re all coveredThis is an IT problemThis is a Business ProblemWhat are you trying to sell us this time?Yes we have a problem, we don’t know how big or where to startAnother vendor trying to scare us into buying from themWe haven’t budgeted to address thisYou’re no different than the other vendorsYes we’re an ITIL shop………Show me the valueWe want this to be the last time we do this

10 Infrastructure Modernisation Michael LoftusHyper-T
11 Hyper Technologies (HyperT) A Perspective on Modernization and Win 2003 Microsoft PartnerDeep expertise in Hyper-V, System Center, and core MS PlatformsFocused primarily on Consulting and On Premises Managed Service, with a “Boutique” Hosting CapabilityAzure activity restricted to DR feasibility discussions thus far. Dev/Test on the horizon.Active in Several Windows 2003 Upgrade ProjectsFocused on Infrastructure – so not confronting Application Server challenges yet

14 Windows 2003 Initiatives- HyperT All focused more on “point” modernization than EOL/CSA risk. Windows 2003 Remediation seen as larger challenge and not necessarily being addressed as single project by our clients.Two separate Financial Services Engagement examplesFirst is moving Windows 2003 File Servers to Virtualized Windows 2012 clusters. Build out new environment, migrate data, retire old servers.Second engagement is also a File Server/DFS-R upgrade to Windows 2012.As you would expect, very few significant technology challenges with these migrationsIn “Proposal Stage” for multiple clients starting to look at Application Servers. Initial trend is they are not interested in diagnostic tools like ChangeBase/App DNA. They seek ISV validation of support for Win 2012
15 HyperT SummaryWe are absolutely committed to (and optimistic about) the prospects for private and hybrid cloud based on MS Cloud OS.There is a need to improve understanding of networking and WAN optimization in the context of Azure and O365We are in dialogue with a few smaller clients about moving their entire IT infrastructure Azure and O365Client interest/demand for these migrations is driven by modernization imperatives.Although the Windows 2003 EOL “event” is acknowledged, it does not appear to represent the major “inflection point” that we believe it is.Not clear that patch availability as critical a concern as it should be.
