As proof of Microsoft's new emphasis on solutions-based content, I am happy to announce the publication of a new Solutions node in the TechNet Library and the publication of new solution guides.
The new Solutions node in the TechNet Library is a central place to get to solutions content, eventually for all solutions content across Microsoft.
To see the new solution guides, click Solutions, and then Solution guides at a glance in the TechNet table of contents. The new solution guides include the following:
- Data protection in small and midsize businesses
- Manage identities for hybrid environments using DirSync with Federation (Single Sign-On)
- Manage identities for hybrid environments using DirSync with Password Sync
- Manage mobile devices and PCs by migrating to Configuration Manager with Windows Intune
- Mobile device management for Configuration Manager 2007 customers planning to migrate to System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager
- Provide cost-effective storage for Hyper-V workloads by using Windows Server
- Secure access to company resources from any location on any device
Here is an example:
Each solution guide takes you through evaluation, planning, and deployment of an end-to-end solution with the following structure:
- Scenario, problem statement, and goals
- What is the recommended planning and design approach for this solution?
- What are the high-level steps to implement this solution?
What do you think of these new solution guides? Can you follow the flow and use them now to realize these end-to-end configurations? What's missing from these guides that would be helpful to you?
We would love to get your opinion. Either comment on this blog post or send more detailed feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org.
