Its time to reveal to you what my next project is. Since late 2011 I’ve been slowly acquiring a few devices and mapping out ideas for the next ebook that I’ve been planning to write.
The working title is the Exchange Server 2010 ActiveSync Guide, and it will be an ebook on the topic of deploying mobile email access for small to mid-sized businesses using Exchange 2010.
We’re moving more and more towards a “bring your own device” world, especially when it comes to business staff who want access to their email when they are away from the office.
With so many people carrying smartphones around these days it makes a lot of sense to just let them use their own device to check their email.
The hard part is doing it efficiently, securely, and knowing what to do when things go bad.
Sure, there are third party solutions out there that solve some of the issues around device provisioning, data encryption, and administrative control. But they come at a price. And a lot of IT departments these days are running on extremely tight budgets already.
This is Where You Come In
I need your help. I could go ahead and write a guide to all the technical bits and pieces of Exchange 2010 ActiveSync. But I also want to solve your real world problems.
So if you have a few minutes to spare, I would appreciate it if you could answer this very brief survey.
Thanks in advance. And I look forward to writing this guide and making it available to all of you.
