Online Security Fueling Demand For Software Upgrades
RENO, NV - Feb 4, 2004 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- AXcess News (www.theaxcess.net) has released a story that
focuses on the latest virus attack known as Mydoom.a and how the demand for software is prompting businesses
to rethink their enterprise project management as well.
From Seattle to Toronto the news headlines read, "Microsoft Braces for Mydoom Onslaught". The Mydoom.a virus
- also known as Novarg.a - spread through thousands of so-called zombie computers and effectively crippled
Utah-based SCO Group's site which may prove to be a boom for Microsoft gold certified partners like the
Project Group (OTCBB: PJTG).
SCO (SCOX) and Microsoft (MSFT) each have offered $250,000 rewards for information leading to the arrest and
conviction of Mydoom's creator.
While huge losses have been incurred by virus attacks globally, many industries have suffered even more from
information technology drain or shifts in content demand. Such as last month when the SEC ordered oil and
gas exploration companies to change the way they reported reserves. Homeland security is also proving to be
just as costly for companies needing to upgrade their in-house systems, which is proving to be a boom for
Microsoft gold certified partners like the Project Group.
Friday, the Project Group announced that it had been engaged by the Delaware State Police to provide
advisory services related to the implementation of Enterprise Project Management with Microsoft's Project
The Delaware contract is the ninth government agency to engage the Project Group this year.
Microsoft will roll out the first service pack for its Office 2003 productivity suite in late June. Office
2003 and other components of the Office System -- including InfoPath 2003, SharePoint Portal Server, and
Project 2003 -- debuted in late October 2003. Those upgrades should provide an upsurge for Microsoft's
Certified Partners who install, configure and manage complex enterprise project management systems such as
the one ordered by Delaware through the Project Group.
