Microsoft Solutions Newsletter - February 2014

From the Helm

Welcome to the new Microsoft Community Newsletter. With the start of the 2014 year, we plan to make available a monthly newsletter covering the Everything Microsoft at EMC community. Our new EMC Community Network site is being reworked to provide easier access to information on EMC Solutions for Microsoft environments, Blogs from our various Microsoft experts, events of interest around Microsoft solutions and insights from various industry luminaries (yes that means they glow at night). I hope you find the community and its newsletter of value and look forward to joining in community activities.  - Ian Breitner - Director, Global  Solutions Marketing - Microsoft
