Microsoft has with the introduction of Exchange Online addressed all of these problems for CTOs.
In the past, your systems administrator would write a Microsoft competency test every 3 years as a new version was introduced. Today, what you studied last week for the competency test you’re writing next week, can be out of date. But that’s if you actually managed to find someone who can do the job well, who is keen to study and isn’t being head-hunted. Automatic patching eliminates the time and effort of maintaining your system. This means the staff you have can focus on business productivity to increase profitability.
