  • Microsoft Exchange Use Cases and Deployment ScopeMicrosoft Exchange is our choice for our messaging platform. It is utilized by the entire organization (approx 45,000 seats). Microsoft Exchange provides a platform for communication as well as file sharing and collaboration. It also provides calendaring, contact management, task management, and notes management.

    Pros : Calendaring - Exchange is great at managing meetings and appointments. It provides the ability to look at attendees' free/busy data so you can effectively plan meetings based on many busy schedules.Web mail interface is easy to navigate and provides users with a rich experience. Many users do not require a fat client.Mobility - Exchange provides the ability to synchronize your mobile devices with your account so you can easily take your mailbox with you.

    Cons : Updating the environment can be cumbersome. As your environment grows the amount of time required to patch or update can be challenging.Calendar corruption, we have experienced challenges with calendars staying sync' between mobile devices. Meeting corruption can be difficult to clean up.

  • What do you like best?

    This is obviously the standard of service for email and business collaboration tools. Email has become critical in our business and is run by Exchange.

    What do you dislike?

    You sometimes have to love what you hate--that's the case with Exchange. It is a bear to administer and requires A LOT of horsepower to run it. We are looking at moving it to a hosted service to make it easier and more available.

    Exchange Server is one of the most known Microsoft software used in companies. Since he was born, was inserted immediately and predominantly in the market, earning his current success.

    Microsoft Exchange allows any business to have an integrated infrastructure in the Microsoft systems and networks with the main purpose of managing the e-mail messaging and all of its related key features (such as the complete management of calendars, address books and course of e-mail).

    Pros :

    • The most widely used user interface is the well-known Microsoft Outlook (software provided by Microsoft in all Office packages), which integrates (obviously) seamlessly with Exchange, it allows you to manage the sorting rules, signatures, e-mail archiving, categorization, clustering, priorities and more.
    • As for the web interface, Microsoft provides OWA (Outlook web access) perfectly and easily integrated into different browser, just access the URL (which you will personalize for your company), enter the username and domain password and you are in your inbox, even here, you will have the option of using the exact same functionality that Exchange makes available on your Outlook client with the limitations that are own of access from a browser.
    • Integration with Active Directory greatly facilitates the use of Outlook especially regarding the sharing with other users (or groups of users, distribution domain groups ) of your appointments, tasks, calendars, address books and more.
    • Of course, no shortage of applications for mobile applications that allow you to integrate the app (native or third-party) for e-mail management with mailbox exchange and setting up a sync frequency options include a server-device-way sync.
    • On this aspect should be specified as the BlackBerry devices performs this function perfectly, although the latest smartphones allow easier viewing of email.

    Cons :

    • It has no special minus points being now truly proven software to perfection, surely the management of Microsoft Exchange Server is not the simpler and requires appropriate and detailed knowledge.
    • Microsoft has prepared several certifications indeed, such as MCSE Messaging, which includes also the management of Office 365 (Microsoft cloud services).

    Microsoft Exchange has some unique capabilities in terms of deployment. One can deploy it on the cloud, so that infrastructure cost and maintenance cost comes down considerably, one can also deploy it on-premise, or one can deploy in both over the cloud and on-premises. Important corporate emails if deployed over the cloud can be accessed over the move. It does have concrete security features wherein one can avoid data loss. The interface is quite user-friendly which is the trait of all Microsoft Products. There is no clogging of information, all piece of information and data are put up in more structured and cleanse way. Exchange also provides archiving features, which helps store only important piece of emails and data at one place, and the archived data on the archival server which can be accessed whenever required.

    Pros :

    • The striking feature of Microsoft Exchange product is its capability to work on any devices.
    • It is quite compatible with Android, iOS, and the OS systems. It works across iPad, mobile devices, laptop, and desktop.
    • Emails are passed through highly secured exchange servers, which follows good security protocols.
    • Emails can be received and sent quite quickly. One can also setup rules in Microsoft Exchange.
    • This rules can basically help you filter out emails.
    • For example, if one needs to filter out all emails from a specific person and move it to a folder named by the person, then such rules can be set to move the emails accordingly.
    • Rules can also be set to move mail's based on keywords, subject, etc.

    Cons :

    • Microsoft exchange though has rich features, but sometimes the mail format over exchange doesn't support embedding of images in the mail. It works smoothly over Internet Explorer browser, but has some compatibility issues with Google Chrome, Firefox, Opera and other similar browsers.
    • Mailing attachments have some limitations on the file sizes, which then would require splitting into multiple files and attaching.

    It is somewhat hard to review Microsoft Exchange in 2015 when most people and companies have already turned to a cloud-based solution. Whether it be Exchange 365, Google Apps or iCloud, the benefits of a local installation of Exchange are sparse.

    Pros :

    • Users can work from pretty much anywhere with Outlook Web Access or OWA for the initiated.
    • Active Sync with mobile devices allows you to sync all Exchange data with mobile users in a secured manner.
    • All the data is synchronized across devices and stored on the server.
    • The use of mobile devices is possible, however, some features are not available with some mobile web browsers.
    • You can, however, get the whole set of features if you go through the dedicated wizard setups on your device. Both Android and Apple natively support the Exchange protocol.

    Cons :

    • Microsoft Exchange is a powerful but pricey tool. However, the advantage is that the cost changes very little compared to an online hosted solution such as Exchange 365 where you pay per user.
    • A local instance of Microsoft Exchange does not allow you to have sufficient control over the different costs associated to it.
    • As opposed to a hosted solution where the price per user is set in stone, here you have to manage and be responsible to all aspects of maintaining this complex infrastructure. This goes from the electricity bill to power the servers, paying for all the Microsoft licenses, salary for the staff administering the servers and more importantly the unexpected cost of losing money for your business in the event the system might go down for a prolonged time.
    • Exchange requires a lot of maintenance on site and dedicated personnel...
    • Dealing with the increasing amount of Spam and phishing attempts also will rely on you should you choose to implement your own Exchange infrastructure.
    • There are of course associated costs behind all this such as purchasing the software and maintaining it on an everyday basis.
