Learn how to efficiently deploy Vista and Office 2007 in your business

One of the things that I spend much of time talking to partners about is how to use the excellent tools and resources available to them so that they can turn their deployment of Vista and Office 2007 into a efficient, cost effective operation.

IT can be the competitive differentiation between you and the next business and how you deploy the latest technology is equally important as just using the latest software and hardware.  To find out how to make your IT management and deployment a competitive advantage for your business make sure you check out these training resources which have just been released.

Have you already deployed?  I'd like to hear your experience and if there's anything that can be improved in BDD and it's related tools and resource please let me know in the comments section.
