@pdtit & @microspecialist invite you to the Good Bye Win XP event.


Soon Microsoft Windows XP and Microsoft Windows Server 2003 come to an official end. Many companies worldwide are still relying heavily on these two Operating Systems and need to change as soon as possible.

The event we organize aims at helping end-users in migrating / switching from XP and 2003 to Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2. Not from a marketing perspective, but showing with real-life examples and scenarios how to achieve this in your own organization.
