Exchange Connections, Fall 2008

If you're interested, I'll be speaking at the up-coming Exchange Connections conference in Las Vegas (ptooey) in November.

Much as I despise Vegas with a vengeance, and will plan on getting in as late as I possibly can then leaving in great haste, the conference itself is something I'm really looking forward to.

Coming from a very strong Exchange background, it's going to be a heck of a lot of fun to educate folks in just how powerful and enabling MDM is. It's a beautiful complement to the neat things you can do with both Exchange and OCS and ties things in together neatly.

Here are my session outlines:
EXC13: SCMDM and Exchange: Is there Room for Both? Like Exchange, SCMDM 2008 has numerous policies which the administrator can apply to the Windows Mobile device. At first glance it may appear that there’s considerable overlap, thus making it hard for the decision-maker to make the best choice for their organization. This session is aimed at the Architect, designer, and implementer who is looking to put the best solution in place for their organization and will highlight the differences and commonalities between both products.

EXC14: Fitting SCMDM into Your Exchange Environment Exchange is the "quick hit" Line of Business (LoB) application for SCMDM. Most customers when discussing provisioning, supporting, and managing Windows Mobile in the enterprise will look to Exchange as being the primary application that they’ll want to make available to their Windows Mobile community. This session is aimed at covering the key issues when it comes to planning, deploying, and scaling SCMDM in order to successfully integrate it with Exchange in your environment.

EXC15: Security Lessons Learned for OCS, Exchange, and SCMDM Deployment While taken from the numerous challenging customer scenarios encountered during the SCMDM 2008 TAP, the lessons shared here are equally applicable for those deploying OCS and Exchange Edge servers into the perimeter network. That hardest part of working with any security team is getting a Windows Server 2003 server into this exposed and potentially high-risk zone. This session is aimed at helping you, as someone tasked with equal responsibility for protecting the enterprise, to work with security, networking, and firewall professionals on the basis of presenting them with solutions instead of challenges.
