Early-Adopter Program for MIIS 2003 SP2 with the Management Agent for SAP now OPEN!!!
I am writing to announce that MIIS 2003 SP 2 and the Management Agent for SAP are available now to MIIS 2003 SP2 Early-Adopter Program participants.
A list of what’s new in this release is provided below.
Our Early-Adopter Program actually incorporates a Supported Technology Adopter Program (the “TAP”) and an Unsupported Beta Program. It provides access to both MIIS 2003 SP2 and the new Management Agent for SAP. The Management Agent for SAP will require MIIS 2003 SP2. Customers accepted into the TAP will enjoy free support through the migration to MIIS 2003 SP 2, as well as opportunity to provide feedback to improve the quality of the release. This provides a valuable opportunity to reduce your risk and deployment time through an upgrade that requires moving your MIIS production database onto SQL Server 2005, and your rule extensions to .NET 2.0. An important requirement for participating in the TAP is a commitment to deploy MIIS 2003 SP2 into production by the end of January 2007. Customers who are not participants in the TAP can still enjoy early access to the release, and will have structured opportunities for feedback. Please read on for details on how to enroll in the program.
For more information, please email miissp2b. We look forward to working with you in the MIIS SP 2 Early-Adopter Program!
