Planning for Virtualization and Planning for Software-plus-Services- MOF Companion Guides
The Microsoft Operations Framework (MOF) team is extending the MOF 4.0 core content with a new series of MOF Companion Guides for the Plan Phase. We’re pleased to announce the beta of the first two guides, Planning for Virtualization and Planning for Software-plus-Services. Visit the Connect site to join the beta.
These companion guides apply MOF to specific scenarios and challenges faced by IT professionals. The guides will walk you through the research and planning processes of implementing virtualization or software-plus-services strategies. They enable the reader to quickly determine which strategies are right for their business, which offerings make sense for their needs, how to select a service provider, and how to best prepare for implementation. Ultimately, the decision-making processes outlined in these guides will help move your business toward operating more efficiently.
