Pro's and Con's of Cloud Hosted Exchange (technical & financial)

  • January 14, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • Microsoft Office

Topic:

Pro's and Con's of Cloud Hosted Exchange. We will discuss technical advantages and disadvantages, and then review the financial part of the equation (aka return on investment, total cost of ownership, etc).

Where:

Same old meeting space. Microsoft has DELAYED the move to their new office building. Apologies for the mistake, but there was a lack of communication issue re: the move. I suspect the Dropbox outage over the weekend caused it (joke).

    • Mohammad C.

      But when do you have to finish taking the survey so that my name shows up on Binary Tree raffle system and hopefully, I get picked?

      January 8, 2014

    • Ben S.

      We have 2 different raffles. One is held @ the meeting at the end of the session as Prabhat detailed. And the Xbox raffle which is done via BinaryTree (Sponsor) via the website. See the main nyexug.com website and complete the raffle that way.

      Okay good to know that. I was hoping to see that presentation from Binary tree as I have future upcoming projects that deal with migration to hosted exchange.
