More Information about the IPD Series
Planning the next generation of technical infrastructure for corporations can be a complex and daunting task. The success of any infrastructure is measured in how well the design choices match business objectives. Although plenty of product documentation is available, it can be difficult to find guidance on how to appropriately plan the core infrastructure for an organization. The Infrastructure Planning and Design series is designed to present the technical decision maker with the most concise planning guidance for Microsoft technologies. It also provides a means to validate design decisions to ensure that the selected solution meets the requirements of both business and IT stakeholders.
The IPD documents are designed to be used by the following IT personnel:
· Infrastructure planners and architects who have a firm operational grasp of the technology.
· Partners and consultants who design infrastructure solutions.
· Business managers who wish to understand how the technology decisions being made both support and affect the business.
