  • The learning curve is fairly short compared to past implementations of Microsoft Server, but do require a depth and breadth of knowledge to fully take advantage of the features and functions of the server OS.
  • Microsoft still has a very large target on its back due to the market share of their OS, but also have significantly more experience dealing with threats that their counter parts (Unix/Linux/Apple)
  • The familiar layout and nomenclature allows for most novice users to gain quick skills in managing small portions of the system, but to truly get the most out of the system, you still need an engineer level resource at least part time to map out the long term strategy of IT for your business.
