HP-Microsoft announce joint program to help partners assist their customers migrating from WS2003

We know you have heard the news, Windows Server 2003 will reach the end of extended support on July 14, 2015. As this happens, customers will turn to you and other HP channel partners to help them assess, plan, and implement their migration and the HP Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Migration Program can help!
