15th August – Microsoft DIC Dubai- organized by Techies
Well this is very first time I talked about SBS2003 R2 in any technical session since I started running the user group. It was a good experience to share SBS2003 R2 with the attendees and I found them very interactive during the session because there was very healthy discussion among all for 10-15 minutes. This was not a planned event by Techies user group but we decided to include this session few days back so we did the poll via email which was quite positive (more than 90% in favor). This event was also sponsored by Microsoft Gulf (Dubai). The time was not enough so I couldn’t cover all the topics and we neither decided to cover everything as it was an introduction to SBS2003 R2.
The idea was to bring the awareness of SBS2003 R2 to those people who have a small network with no server or peer-to-peer network. The idea was to tell them and show them how SBS2003 R2 can help a small business to get the benefits of enterprise level services such as security, mobility, intranet, shared fax, patch management, remote web workplace, messaging etc.
In short the session was good and in the future we will plan to have an in-depth session on SBS2003 R2.
