What SQL Server 2005 end-of-service means for your business

SQL Server 2005 extended support ended April 12, 2016. We’ve compiled the Top 4 reason your business needs to migrate to SQL Server 2014. 

1. No critical security updates

Many critical security updates were released for SQL Server 2005. After April 12, no more updates will be developed or released, and this could make your business vulnerable to cyber-security attacks.

2. No compliance updates

Companies that process credit card or industry regulated data may face non-compliance consequences. If your business handles credit payments, your revenue streams could be at risk.

3. Higher maintenance costs

Maintaining outdated technology and taking additional measures to bring it up to today’s standards can quickly become expensive. Retaining old software will likely cost more in the end.

4. The potential to lose customers

Forty-seven states now have security breach notification laws, meaning that businesses must 
immediately disclose a data breach to customers. If you are breached, how will this impact the
integrity of your company?
 
If your business is still on SQL Server 2005, our Databranch Microsoft Certified Engineers can help 
plan your migration. Please reach out to a Microsoft Expert at 716-373-4467 ext. 15,
