Enterprise Technical Architecture for Microsoft BackOffice
Technology rules. We both know that! But the people with budget don't always know that. Do you know how to convince them they're wrong when they turn down your request for Microsoft Site Server? If you can't, then you need this book. Don't expect to find your typical technical re-hash of the Resource kits here... this is not your typical technical book.

This book gives technical managers and network administrators a foundation for making benefits of technology understandable to Line-of-Business Leaders. It also provides CFO's, LOB leaders and MIS Managers an overview of what business problems Microsoft BackOffice can solve. If you can tell LOB leaders how your technical solution will solve their business problem, then you will get the budget you need to implement technology. It is that simple.

In this book, we show you how to take a business perspective to analyzing requirements, designing a technical architecture and implementing technology. If you want to lead the charge to Microsoft Windows 2000, then you MUST LEARN the strategies and soft skills described in this book. Technical skills will not be enough for you to succeed! If you need to know how to configure something , read the Microsoft Resource Kits, or get Microsoft Certified training at a CTEC with real-world experience like ours. Learning technology is easy... dealing with the realities of enterprise technical architecture isn't, but we give you the tools and processes to make it easier.

Enjoy.

This book is a excellent survey of the Microsoft BackOffice technologies, and the business environment in which they are implemented. This book is a must read for those in business or technology roles that are trying to determine the best infrastructure for their business solutions. If you are looking for how to add a mailbox to Exchange Server this is not the book for you, but if you are trying to understand the business issues and benefits of deploying BackOffice then you have found a unique book that should be listed with "Business" books in addition to "Computer" books.
