-- On July 18 and 19, Concurrency, Inc. will hold free seminars for IT professionals on new features of Microsoft System Center 2012 R2
, which is currently in preview. These sneak-peek events will focus on how System Center 2012 R2, Windows Server 2012 R2, and Windows Azure work together to help provision and manage cloud and data center infrastructure, provide business continuity, deliver services, and manage applications.
Concurrency consultants will share lessons learned from some of the largest System Center deployments in the Midwest. As a local systems integrator, Concurrency provides IT consulting to meet business needs. Concurrency's consulting team includes multiple-time Microsoft MVPs Nathan Lasnoski and Annur Sumar, who both presented to industry audiences at the 2013 Microsoft Management Summit.
"Now that System Center and Windows Server are on the same release schedule, we're seeing more and more companies taking advantage of the synergies between the platform tools and the management tools," said Concurrency president and founder James Savage. "As we talk to CIOs and systems managers, we increasingly hear about getting the most value from IT investments. One of the most powerful ways to do that is by matching Microsoft's platform solutions--both on-premises and in the cloud--with System Center's powerful management tools."
