This time of year everyone is rushing to get things done both work and in their home life. As you rush to the get ready for the holidays – you might also be like a lot of IT folks who relish the time in-between December 25th and new years eve. This slower / quieter time at work could open up an opportunity – a brief window of time - where you can try some things out before the new year.
(I personally loved this break when I worked as an IT admin – I literally had the run of the office and time to try out new things.)
If you are in this situation and are looking for something to try out and expand your skill base to make you into a Hero at work – might I suggest checking out our System Center 2012 product line? It’s currently in Pre-Release RC mode (Release Candidate) that will be upgradeable to Full product when it goes RTM in the new year. Management solutions like our System Center release of products put you in the drivers seat of your datacenter.
If this isn’t enough to get you interested in getting the jump on your skills adjustment and checking out our latest offerings before they RTM (I mentioned they are upgradeable to RTM, right?) – how about I sweeten the deal for you, while they are downloading?
Let me simplify it for ya.
Why was step #3 so important?
We’ll ship you a gift card from a famous Canadian coffee retailer (rhymes with Jim Morton’s) for about 5 double-doubles for your troubles and enjoyment as you work through the evaluations and how they’ll make you a Management guru in your work environment. Heck – you can even check out some of the free online training at www.microsoftvirtualacademy.com while you are waiting for them to complete their DL.
What are you waiting for? Don’t Delay – we’ve only set aside a certain number of cards. Once they are gone – they are gone! That link again is http://www.microsoft.com/canada/technet/system-center/
oh – and before anyone asks – this offer is valid and available to ALL CANADIAN Citizens in Canada, INCLUDING Québec!
<p>Hey, thanks, and Merry Christmas, Happy Hollidays, etc.!</p>
<p>What Jerry said! : )</p>
<p>Is there a link I can give a lackey along with the 7 downloads so they can get started quickly and easily?</p>
