Are you ready for EBS?

You have probably heard by now that Microsoft is releasing a new product into the mid-market called Windows Essential Business Server. You can get more details on it at https://partner.microsoft.com/40047779?msp_id=essentialbusinessserver. We are working with some of the marketing folks in Redmond to determine how partners make a decision to add a new product into their solution mix? What gets you excited about adding a new product? We all have a solution today consisting of Small Business Server, Windows Server or some combination of the two. Now a new kid is coming to the party and I want to know what steps you will take to evaluate it? What decisions will you address as you consider adding EBS? What roadblocks do you see? I have a couple Starbucks gift cards for the people who submit the best guidance to making this decision. You can post here or email me at asorensen@heartlandtechnologies.com. I look forward to getting your insight. Here is the way it shakes out in case you are not familiar with EBS yet:
