I know it's short notice, but some of you may still be able to make it!
Microsoft UK and a number of UK Partners, are running a Desktop Deployment day, here at Microsoft Campus in Thames Valley, with the aim to provide a look in to the latest deployment processes and the opportunities these open up for reducing the overheads associated with deploying and maintaining desktop and mobile estates. It sounds like it will be a pretty useful event for a number of reasons - one of which being, it's a great chance to learn about a methodology called BDD, or Business Desktop Deployment, and how it's use can really streamline deployment within your infrastructure. If you want some information on BDD, and lots more, you can find it all here: http://desktopdeployment.co.uk/default.aspx
It's not just focused on Vista - oh no, Office too has a big presence, so if you are thinking about deploying one, or the other, or....both, then I'd really encourage you to attend.
The agenda is as follows:
