Have you checked out the Microsoft IT Showcase? I think it pretty cool and shows how we use and test our technology in our IT enviroment. It gives IT professionals a unique, insider view into Microsoft's process of developing, deploying, and managing its own enterprise solutions. Here you will find technical case studies, white papers, presentations and more, direct from Microsoft IT, that highlight Microsoft's key business applications, deployment strategies, early adopter experiences, best practices, and initiatives.
Check it out @ How Microsoft Does IT
Perhaps we could take are IT conversations and talk to some of the people in redmond that manage the solutions.
hmm.... now that might be interesting.
have a great weekend,
