Small Businesses need to capitalize on the investments they make in IT to drive the business forward.

Well implemented solutions enable your business to appear larger, yet more dynamic than many enterprises.

SBS 2008 is a fantastic investment for Small Businesses to make towards a well managed and highly functional IT solution in their business. This book is the culmination of many years advising small business owners and consultants on the recommend, tried and tested path to implement small business technology from Microsoft.

It will guide you through the installation and configuration process with the help of step-by-step instructions and plentiful screenshots. It will also explain how you can benefit from the collaboration tools based on SharePoint and how you can protect all your business data with a back-up process that covers anything from deleted files to a fire in the office.

About the Author
David Overton started his first two businesses while he was still at school. Both were very successful. One was selling stationary to his fellow pupils at prices below the local shops and the second was providing no-nonsense IT training without the use of jargon to local businesses. Since then his passion for small business has, on occasion, been tempered by his own employment in much larger businesses. In 2000 he joined the ranks within Microsoft and moved back towards his passion for small businesses. There he was tasked with improving the knowledge of small business consultants in delivering business-centric IT to their customers. This culminated with him holding the role of Head of Technology for Small Businesses within Microsoft UK. Since then he has progressed his career inside Microsoft, but he continues to play an active part in the small business teams at Microsoft and the marketplace.

Outside of work he is married and has two beautiful children. He enjoys sailing as an escape from life and he is always looking for opportunities to sail throughout the year.
