The guide to how SQL Server 2008 end-of-service can drive IT modernization. End-of-service presents serious risks to your organisation if you don’t deal with it correctly—or worse—if you don’t deal with it at all, including the loss of access to critical security updates and Microsoft hotfixes. Also, if you don’t take action, your organisation will be exposed to potential disruption from hackers and malware. That means valuable customer data could be exposed to attack, risking monetary and reputational damage. And from a regulatory standpoint, there could be compliance issues with rules such as HIPAA, PCI, and GDPR. On the other hand, if you take well-considered action that aligns with your long-term strategy, end-of-service is also an opportunity for data estate modernisation.
In this e-book, we’ll discuss how migration to Azure as part of your fix for SQL Server 2008 end-of-service solves for all these, and opens doors for the future of your data-driven business.
