My school has a computer running Windows Server 2003 what do I need to do?

If your SIMS database is hosted on your computer running Windows Server 2003

Migrating to the Scomis Hosted Applications Service will mean that you will not need to upgrade or replace your server (and potentially the computers attached to it) in time for the Autumn 2013 upgrade. Doing so will give you additional breathing space to plan and resource upgrading your school’s network. Click here to learn about the benefits of the Scomis Hosted Application Service.

Alternatively you will need to upgrade or replace this computer along with any SIMS workstations running Windows XP in time for the SIMS upgrade in autumn. Click here for information on our Network Installation Service
