Companies migrate from Solaris to Microsoft Windows so they can extract more competitive advantage from equipment and software. The resulting Microsoft Windows-based systems simplify management, enhance the productivity of users and network support personnel, minimize information duplication, increase data integrity, and allow for smoother rebounds from disaster. A Windows environment lets businesses develop applications rapidly and demands less effort to be expended on developing, integrating, and managing applications.
