    JD,

    The guidelines are very good — short, to-the-point, well-organized — but I’m struggling to find suggestions specific to work in corporate IT shops with lots of applications and projects for variety of departments and lines-of-business. Details of my problem scenario  and a few possible implementation approaches are at http://forums.microsoft.com/MSDN/showpost.aspx?postid=1453999&siteid=1  

    Could you or anyone else comment on the tradeoffs in the various options there, or point me to some info focused on these issues?

    Thanks!

    – Val
