Real World Exchange Broken Meeting Statistic

We recently got an export of a real world conference room schedule in Exchange 2007 from January 1, 2008 to December 31, 2008 and did some analysis on it.

That one room hosted 2,450 individual instances of meetings (i.e., we count each recurring instance).

Figuring that there are 260 work days in a year, this means on average there are 9 meetings a day in that conference room (which sounds pretty close to full capacity, though there are occurrences on weekends).

What was also interesting was that there were 288 broken meetings in it (clogging the availability), or on average 1 broken meeting per work day.

Now given that this is from ONE conference room are we drawing big conclusions from it? No.

We were really astounded to see it anywhere near 1 per work day, though.
