It is swag city! We always get a conference bookbag, or laptop case, or knapsack of some sort. Then there is all the stuff from the exhibition hall and the parties. I learned the hard way during my first Tech Ed in 2000 when I had to run out to the closest Walmart to buy an extra suitcase to bring home all my swag. Now I go down with a suitcase within a suitcase. I still end up leaving stuff behind.

Yes, I did E-mail the MSRC group about a Security Bulletin Focus group and they did contact me, had me fill out survey and then invited me to a group and gave me the details.

I've received a number of focus group emails. Among them...

6/3
The Platform Interoperability and Migration Solutions (PIMS) team at Microsoft would like to invite you to one such session to discuss the experiences you have had in migrating your applications and infrastructure to Windows (from non-Windows platforms such as Unix) as well as interoperating your heterogeneous IT environment with Windows. The PIMS team at Microsoft develops comprehensive, lab-tested, prescriptive guidance (process and technology) based on real-world best practices to help our customers manage issues related to migration and interoperability. The session will provide you with an opportunity to communicate your feedback to us directly so we can address them in our future solutions.

The session is on Monday, the 6th June 2005 between 12:00 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. Lunch will be served and we will have a small gift for you as a token of our appreciation for your participation.

We’re looking for participants who serve or operate in Small and Medium business (SMB) segments—Microsoft defines SMB segments with organizations with 1-500 PCs or under 1000 employees. The Small & Medium Business solution team in CIS (Core Infrastructure solutions) is developing SMB Assessment and Deployment Solution tailored to core Medium business (50-249 PCs) needs to dramatically reduce the cost and risk associated with assessment, migration and deployment of infrastructure projects in Medium business.

The solution will offer proven tools and prescriptive guidance for each phase of the customer’s lifecycle (Evaluate, Plan, Build, Deploy and Operate) to provide predictable experience for a secure and manageable infrastructure and enable key scenarios such as Networking & Directory services, File/Print, Messaging and Server & Desktop management. The assessment phase includes an inventory tool that discovers all of the servers, clients and network devices in the IT environment. Secondly, the proposal tool creates a Visio diagram of current IT assets and generates a detailed proposal for migration and deployment to new platform based on Windows Server System. Finally, we have automated parts of multi-server deployment and configurations of the Windows Server 2003, Exchange 2003 and MOM-Work group edition 2005 using task sequencing technology.

If you operate in medium business segment either as an IT Professional or a Partner, we would like to hear your views on our solution direction and future roadmap.

The session is on Thursday, 9th June 2005 between 12:00 p.m-to-1:00 p.m. Lunch will be served and we will have a small gift for you as a token of our appreciation for your participation.
