IMPORTANT NOTICE:  MIP Support Changes for
Windows Server 2008, Server 2008 R2, and SQL 2008 R2 Users
In case you missed our announcements at the last several User Group meetings, it's finally here - versions of MIP released after March 31, 2019 will no longer be supported on Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, and SQL 2008 R2.   
Before you panic, call IT, buy a new server or upgrade, now is the opportune time to consider MIP's Cloud. The pricing has changed and is often favorable when considering all of the IT costs associated with doing an in-house upgrade. (if you'd rather stay on-premise, DWD can help with server migrations too).
Contact Adam Westgerdes at awestgerdes@dwdtechgroup.com or 260.423.2414 to see what options will meet your organization's needs and plan accordingly.
