Information technology (IT) service company Getronics NV has trained its 1,500 IT consultants on Windows Server 2003. The training began in April 2003 and aims to ensure that the firm's technology consultants are qualified to help its customers migrate from Windows Server NT 4.0 to Windows Server 2003. Although the initial round of training has focused on the U.S. branch of Getronics, 110 Great Britain staff are set to take part in the course as it rolls out across the world. The staff have begun putting their new skills to good use, with Israeli digital-audio specialist NICE Systems Inc. having already switched from Windows Server NT 4.0 to Windows Server 2003 with Getronics' help.
