Manchester Technet Event Q&A


At our recent Technet Event in Manchester we asked customers to submit questions via SMS.  Some of them we ran out of time to answer so I offered to answer them and submit to my blog…


For those that attended – remember to complete the feedback form when you get the email 🙂
