.NET will succeed in the same way that Microsoft has so far been successful in enterprise computing: server by server. This family of products is poised to compete with Sun, IBM, and others; Microsoft will leverage its 6,000,000+ developers and huge installed base of Windows and Exchange servers to continue its march through the enterprise. This book presents coverage of the key elements of Microsoft's strategy, together with practical, hands-on advice about how to assure integration and deployment of solutions that meet the needs of individual businesses.
