I am channeling my early days living and breathing as a U.S. Army Officer.  I can't be any more clear about what I am asking you to do. So, here is your mission:

Subscribe to this this nine-part Blog Series called:          What’s New in Windows Server & System Center 2012 R2.

In all seriousness... This 9 post blog series has had many eye balls from pretty much every organization across the company. It is a culmination of all the content that we discussed at events like TechEd in New Orleans and Madrid.  The intent is to boil down the core scenarios or pillars for our Windows Server and System Center 2012 R2 release into Four Distinct Groups of articles that if you read them all, you would actually be able to light up each one of these scenarios....

I'm not kidding.

Today, we published the second blog post in the series called, What’s New in 2012 R2:  Making Device Users Productive and Protecting Corporate Information.  This is part 1 of 2 where we talk about lighting up Bring your own device, (BYOD) or what we call People Centric IT (PCIT).

This series of posts feature Brad Anderson our VP for Windows Server and System Center along with his leadership team and also the engineering teams that are still hard at work on releasing R2. There is a section at the bottom of every post called NEXT STEPS to all the underlying engineering blogs that light up the scenario.

I really hope you all take the time to go read these posts. We based this plan on tons of feedback that you wanted more integrated content from our Product Teams.

Thanks and I hope you find these posts useful and if you don't please let me know what you think we should be doing differently,
