Welcome to the start of a fantastic summer! It’s the time of year where we check our gear for heat and vacation readiness, and prepare for updates and hardware refreshes from all the major players. It’s also the time of year when we encourage our clients to review and renew their emergency plans, so they’re never caught unprepared. Take a look at what we’re talking about at Base Camp right now:

  • Microsoft Trifecta – Windows Server 2003, Office 2016, and Windows 10
    With Windows Server 2003 coming to its end of life, and migrations underway, we don’t want extra surprises – so if you haven’t seen that Windows 10 is on its way, and the new Office 2016 is available in preview, you have some time to prepare.
  • Tech wearables in Business?
    Absolutely! Whether it’s for data collection, productivity, or streamlining mobility for road warriors, the addition of wearable technologies for enterprise is a rapidly growing industry. Check out this cool infographic about how businesses are including these devices.
  • Refreshing Business Disaster Plan
    We encourage you to review aspects of your BDR every quarter – but if you aren’t able, make time at least once a year to check all aspects of your plan: backups, points of contact in an emergency, and data storage plans. Here’s an excellent primer for solutions like MySherpa Beacon.

Please check out our Facebook and Twitter pages for more of what’s going on with the Sherpas – and enjoy your summer. And if you have any questions or you’re ready to start your expedition, you can contact us anytime.
