1/ I don't think there is any chance of an existing app or series of apps to meet your requirements.

2/ with the requirement of Outlook integration , scheduling in advance, display schedules etc i believe the Exchange methods (as per technet above) are the best option and then build a custom application to read the calendars to create the notifications and statistics and other items.

the Exchange EWS API has lots of options for applications to hook into the exchange database.

there are lots of examples now, esp Henning Krauses Blog http://www.infinitec.de/ & Glen Scales. http://www.gsexdev.blogspot.com/
