Hello dear,

My name is Baris Aydogmusoglu. I live in Istanbul,Turkey. I worked as senior technical consultant for a leading education and consultancy company formerly known Bilge Adam (also a partner of Microsoft). Since October 2012, I have been working for another partner. My primary concern is Enterprise Information Archiving Solutions for four five mounts. As you can understand from my primary concern my favorite product is Exchange Server family :-) (From exchange server 2003 to 2013) I have much experience about Microsoft exchange server infrastructures and designs. As a Microsoft certified trainer I taught many courses to individuals and corporates as well. (for example MS Exchange server 2010-> 10135A , 64xy series of windows server curriculums etc..) As a result; I am interested in MS Exchange Servers, Windows Server Platform ( 2003 to 2012 ) , System Center 2012 Configuration Manager products .
