Whilst we often get specific requests such as “we need a migration path from SBS2003 to Windows Server 2008”, we will try to address the underlying problem first (i.e. “SBS2003 no longer services our needs”). Your IT infrastructure is not just the server hardware or software, but the combined collection of hardware, software, network fabric, vendor relationships, and existing workflow organization.
