“Help! I’m An IT Consultant!”: Why I Got Into IT

OK, I admit it. I’m an IT consultant and that makes me about as popular as a fart in a lift.
Yes, you can put me with the Estate Agents and Accountants at a conference or networking event, and yes, I understand if you think I wear Star Wars underpants. I get it.

There was a time when I wished I wasn’t into IT and there was a time that I wanted to be anything but a geek. But the fact is, I’m good at being a geek and many of our clients have very successful and hassle-free businesses because of my skills (Jedi or otherwise). Once upon a time I didn’t want to be an IT consultant. In fact, I didn’t know what one was. I was however, really into IT -and in a big way!

Windows Server 2003 support is ending

Time is running out – but your options aren’t. After July 14 this year, Microsoft will no longer issue security updates for any version of Windows Server 2003. If you are still running Windows Server 2003 in your business, you will need to take steps now to plan and execute a professional migration strategy to protect your infrastructure. Somerbys IT can help.

We are now rapidly approaching Windows Server 2003 end of life. After July 14 2015, Microsoft will no longer issue security updates for any version of Windows Server 2003. If you are still running Windows Server 2003 in your business, you will need to take steps now to plan and execute a professional migration strategy to protect your infrastructure.

By migrating to Windows Server 2012 R2 you can achieve concrete benefits, including improved performance, reduced maintenance requirements, and increased agility and speed of response to the business. What does end of support mean for you? The team at Somerbys IT pride themselves in providing outstanding customer service to all of its clients, and can offer you the best solutions for your business.

Following on from the end of support by Microsoft for Windows XP in April 2014, the team at Somerbys IT are excited for the launch of Windows 10 scheduled for later this year. We will obviously keep you up to date with the latest announcements from Microsoft to ensure you hear the latest developments first.

The Windows you know, only better. Windows 10 is due to be launched in the Autumn this year. As you expect, there are some great improvements and developments planned. Windows 10 will feel familiar so you can get more done from the off. The Start menu is due to be back with space to pin your favourite apps (something that many Windows users will be pleased to welcome back!). Simple navigation means you won’t need to spend much time learning anything new. You won’t have to wonder if you have the latest features or security updates as Windows will automatically deliver updates, when they’re ready, directly to your device.
