Businesses move from Sun Solaris-based systems to Windows so they can derive more business advantage from hardware and applications. The resulting MS Windows-based systems simplify management, enhance the efficiency of workers and network support personnel, minimize information replication, increase information integrity, and allow for faster recovery from catastrophic failure. A Windows system lets businesses develop solutions rapidly and requires less time to be spent on developing, deploying, and managing application software.
