Adnan Rafique – Ent. Collaboration Architect (MS Exchange and Office 365)
Let me give you a little background. Exchange is my passion and this site ExchangeITPro is a site to contribute toward I.T. community and more specifically to Exchange and Office 365 community. I’ve been blogging since 2006 and my first I.T. user group was formed in Dubai and it was named as Techies Only (www.techiesonly.com). In 2013 I’ve started another user group based out of Iselin NJ (Microsoft) named as NJUCUG. I’ve invited many known SME and MS PFE to my user group and I’ve also spoken to many of the sessions. And of course I’m thankful to the vendors who had been sponsoring the user group meetings.
I try my best to keep the content fresh on this site and whenever you visit here I hope you take away something informative and valuable. If you want to follow me or if you have any feedback then feel free to reach me on @ExchangeITPro
