Nick Parlow – Be Smart, Play Dumb; Exchange Design and Operations for Shared Services.

A session describing how to design and manage exchange in the stripped down low cost world of shared services, and how these lessons apply in the outside world.  Shared services follow a “pile ‘em high, sell ‘em cheap” philosophy that relies on treating IT services as a commodity that can be replicated across numerous customers. Stripping away variability and using commodity building blocks dovetails with the Microsoft vision for Exchange, resulting in fewer errors and less downtime – so long as you follow the rules. The talk will cover the design principles of reducing complexity, building software updates into operations, avoiding badly documented “cleverness”, proactive maintenance, managing change, using the tools and capacity management.
