TechNet 2.0 & The IT Pro Guide – I’m listed as an Exchange Expert!

I have always found Microsoft TechNet website a great resource. In particular the forums are well monitored so validated answers are usually quick to come by!

Now Microsoft has gone even further to support customers by introducing a new site “The IT Pro Guide” and revamping the TechNet site.

The email below from Microsoft explains the aims of the changes, but for me the coolest thing is that I’m listed as an expert on the IT Pro Guide site for Exchange Server! (http://www.microsoft.com/En/gb/itproguide/exchange-2010.aspx

The Microsoft email:

Exploring Microsoft technology online can be daunting for IT Pros, making it difficult for them to discover Microsoft’s value. To address these concerns the UK DPE Technical Audience Marketing team has made two enhancements to Microsoft’s IT Pro online offering -  the new IT Pro Guide and the redesign of TechNet.

IT Pro Guide

On March 12th the UK DPE AMM team, began piloting a new IT Pro online strategy to  bridge the information gap between feature-driven Microsoft.com product content and technical how-to on TechNet.

IT Pro Guide  provides a focused and managed conversation with ‘unengaged’ IT Pros. These IT Pros may not have purchased Microsoft products recently, but have the potential to recommend and use more. We need to help guide them through the wealth of content  so they can easily find the information they need. 

So why is this site different?

· It’s been designed based on the IT Pro’s requirements not ours. Why would an unengaged IT Pro come to Microsoft? This gave us the 3 titles you see on the homepage.

· The IT Pro can be guided through the site through the path they choose, rather than the way we think is best.

· It has a flat structure, meant to guide the IT Pro through to the most appropriate resource, rather than keep them within the site.

· We have only have 3 resource links per solution.

· We are using MVPs and Microsoft product experts to help start a conversation. Links are not just links but intros to their expertise.

Of course the best way to experience IT Pro Guide is to check out the site.  So go to the Microsoft UK Home Page, select the For IT Pro tab, and hit the link to IT Pro Guide.  Or go directly to www.microsoft.com/uk/itproguide

Thank you goes to the UK Community Council who helped shape the content on this site.

TechNet 2. 0

You’ll already be familiar with TechNet, Microsoft’s site for IT Professionals, but TechNet 2.0 is packed with even more of the best technical content, essential tools for the job, and connections to Microsoft product groups and the technical community.

TechNet went through a global redesign, changing the look and feel across all of TechNet sites. This new version of TechNet is a lot lighter, with many old and redundant pages deleted, and now a new look slimmed down version of the homepage.

Look out for a new version of the TechNet Flash to match.

Its not all about a pretty new blue colour, there is also the launch of the TechNet Wiki , TechNet Search with meta-data enabled search results for TechNet Forums (see Hyper-V example), and new "finder" features for Troubleshooting resources and Downloads (both top IT Pro Tasks)

In this webcast, we focus on Client Access Services in Microsoft Exchange Server 2007. The overall goal of Client Access Services is to add value to the data in your inbox by enabling you to access that data from any location. We explain how to access inbox data using Microsoft Office Outlook, Microsoft Office Outlook Web Access (OWA), and mobile devices, and we also describe some of the new client access features introduced in Exchange Server 2007. Join us for a look at the various underlying components of Exchange Server 2007 Client Access Services. We cover the enhanced calendar functionality, the new Unified Messaging and Exchange Server Web services, and programmatic access to messaging data. We conclude the session by examining Exchange Server ActiveSync improvements.

8 June 2007 : TechNet Webcast: High Availability in Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 and Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1 (Level 300)

Simulcast from Microsoft Tech?Ed 2007 in Orlando, FL.

E-mail has become mission critical for large and small businesses alike. Businesses and organizations of all types simply cannot afford the extended outages of disasters like failed disks, corrupt databases, failed servers, or power outages. The built-in high availability solutions in Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 and Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1 (SP1) can make recovery from many disasters barely noticeable to end users. Learn how local continuous replication (LCR), cluster continuous replication (CCR), standby continuous replication (SCR), and single copy clusters (SCCs) provide fast recovery for events that used to be called disasters.

11 June 2007 : TechNet Webcast: Exchange Server 2007 Transport and Routing Architecture (Level 200)

In this session, we present the improvements made to transport and message routing in Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, and we highlight the benefits these changes offer to both users and administrators. We start by looking at the pros and cons of message routing and transport services in Microsoft Exchange Server 2000 and Exchange Server 2003. Next, we compare Exchange Server 2000 and Exchange Server 2003 with Exchange Server 2007. We conclude the webcast with demonstrations that show you how to set up connectors between the Hub and Edge Transport server roles, and how to enable transport rules within your organization.

13 June 2007 : TechNet Webcast: Disaster Recovery in Exchange Server 2007 (Level 200)

In this session, we talk about disaster recovery in Microsoft Exchange Server 2007. We discuss how you can plan for disaster recovery by understanding what issues can arise with your servers running Exchange Server and the information they store and handle. We look at server roles, describe what each server role does, and explain what can happen to your Exchange Server organization when a server role fails. When a disaster occurs, you need to get the server up and running as quickly as possible, so we also look at the recovery solutions and available tools in this webcast.

15 June 2007 : TechNet Webcast: Recipient Management, Policies, and Permissions in Exchange Server 2007 (Level 200)

In this webcast, we focus on the recipient management model in Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, and discuss how it has changed since Microsoft Exchange Server 2003. Learn how Exchange Server 2007 handles resources and find out about the changes to the administrative permission model. In Exchange Server 2007, you have the option to separate your Active Directory directory service administration from your Exchange Server administration. During this presentation, we explore how that is achieved.

Up-Coming MS Events and Webcasts about Exchange

Events/WebCasts

1 May 2007 : Momentum Webcast: Unified Communications Featuring Exchange Server 2007 (Level 100)

Businesses do not garner insight or make decisions. Businesses do not close deals, invent new products, or find new efficiencies. People do. In other words, companies excel when they empower their people to drive the business forward. Microsoft is looking to help people communicate and collaborate with their co-workers, partners, and customers more effectively, setting up the environment for what we call a people-ready business. The Microsoft vision for Unified Communications, which includes Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, is consistent with this concept and is about unifying disparate communications. Attend this session to learn about Exchange Server 2007 and its role within the Unified Communications suite.
