Program Description

"According to analysts more than 70 per cent of a typical IT budget is spent on infrastructure, such as servers, operating systems, storage and networking. Add to this the need to refresh and manage desktop and mobile devices and you have a unique set of challenges for IT infrastructure to face." (Microsoft.com).
