Your server is the backbone of your network, and it usually houses all of your data, including financial records and patient health information (PHI). Additionally, new software applications and hardware devices may not be compatible with Windows Server 2003. Continuing to run Windows Server 2003 when Microsoft stops releasing updates may put your practice at risk. A solid migration plan to a new server can help you protect your practice.
You will also want to evaluate upgrading your server hardware to meet current and future needs. A number of IT experts have recently recommended new hardware when migrating from Windows Server 2003 to a new platform because existing servers are typically outdated and cannot handle the demands of modern businesses.
A free network assessment by TechCentral will determine whether your current server is sufficient, and if not, what your options are.
