Essential Business Server will enhance the running and management of your line of business applications. We designed it that way. Sounds good, but how can that be true of a suite of infrastructure products? Let’s dive in and I’ll explain.

A significant part of the purchase of a significant line of business (LOB) application (e.g. CRM, ERP, financial apps, …) for your company is preparing the environment.

Essential Business Server solves most of this for most applications – all current core IT infrastructure, configured to best practices.
