DXC Technology acquires Microsoft Partner Sable37

4th April 2018

Today I can announce that global company DXC Technology has acquired Sable37 to boost it’s position as one of Microsoft’s leading global partners for Dynamics 365.

At the same time, DXC Technology has purchased UK-headquartered Microsoft partner, eBECS.

Beginning this month, both Sable37 and eBECS will be combined with DXC’s Eclipse practice as part of an effort to enhance the integrator’s standing in the industry and add scale to its digital transformation strategy.

For Sable37 managing director, Martin Wildsmith, the combination of the company with DXC Eclipse will position the business to offer greater service, innovation and opportunity for customers, partners and employees.

As we transform, I look forward to building upon our joint legacy of performance; bringing together the best of both companies under DXC Eclipse, Wildsmith said.

This is an exciting time. More information will follow in the coming weeks and months.

Windows Server 2003 – End of Microsoft Support July 14 2015

Just under a year out from this blog post, Microsoft will end the support for Windows Server 2003 on July 14th 2015. This means no more security patches or bug fixes will be available. So if you are running Windows Server 2003 you need to plan for this date and the impact it will have on your server(s). If you intend sticking with Windows Server after July 14th 2015 then you will need to have a custom support agreement with Microsoft to receive any new issues or updates.

Office 365 – New Feature – First Release

Microsoft has been rolling out a new feature called ‘First Release’. This feature allows administrators of Office 365 to enable their organisation to receive a collection of Office 365 feature updates and enhancements the instant they are released from Microsoft.

From Microsoft:

First Release gives customers who opt-in the opportunity to get a small selection of significant enhancements to the Office 365 user experience, SharePoint Online, and Exchange Online first. If you opt-in to First Release, you will receive new qualifying feature updates first, a minimum of two weeks before customers in our standard release group.

By default, all Office 365 customers are part of the standard release group. If you stay within this group i.e. don’t enable First Release option, then you will receive the new feature updates a minimum of two weeks after availability in First Release.

To enable First Release to your Office 365 subscription:

  1. Log into the portal admin at portal.microsoftonline.com
  2. Go to Admin > Service settings > Updates
