IT workers often have to tackle complicated and complex tasks, working with many interrelated parts that require painstaking attention to detail. It’s a difficult process, yet somehow they must manage the problem. But the best solution, according to a recent article from InfoWorld, is a process automation system.
In working on a solution to a problem in integrating Exchange and SharePoint 2013, J. Peter Bruzzese was encountering a variety of roadblocks that made the job frustrating. He was trying to allow users to connect a shared mailbox with storage from SharePoint. There was no shortage of expertise necessary, according to the article: not merely an incredible understanding of Exchange and SharePoint, but also DNS configuration, certificate services, and PowerShell scripts.
Bruzzese was having a tough go of it until he recalled something that Tony Redmond, Exchange MVP, often said he realizes too late in the game.
“After much effort and a fair amount of swearing,” said Redmond, “I concluded that this activity is a prime candidate for automation.”
