Well, We all love that time of the year when the call comes for submissions for the annual budget this year. So far we have worked out that we have a whole ton of stuff to pay in Maintenance this year.
Firstly, we’ve worked out our main projects for the year. They are as follows:
- SharePoint (or WSS v3) for Intranet
- Exchange 2007 upgrade and Stores using Exchange OWA for their mail
- Implementing a SSL VPN to replace dodgy IPSec offering
- Infrastructure upgrade. ( fortunately, this will be a CapEx cost…)
Other minor things will be finishing off the upgrade of the Desktops and laptops for the internal staff and organising all the annual maintenance costs, including renewing our MS eOpen License agreement.
Looks like I really need to get those Organisational skills worked out sooner rather than later…
