Now that Microsoft Ignite has come and gone, I have had time to digest some of the news from the week and want to share some thoughts…specifically about Skype and Teams for now. Ignite 2017 overall was the best/most productive Microsoft conference I have attended. The logistics of a conference this size have to be crazy – 30,000 people, 1600+ sessions, vendors, food, celebrations, etc. Kudos to everyone involved.
The first day of Microsoft Ignite brought a staggering amount of announcements, most of which I have yet to read about in detail. With the number of product groups represented at the conference, I am sure there are still some that I haven’t heard about. In all of the sessions I attended today, I saw Microsoft’s mission throughout. It is clear that they are really focused on ensuring users have the tools they need to be productive.
Microsoft Mission: Empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more.
Microsoft Ignite kicks off on Monday, and I can’t wait for another year of immersion in all of the enterprise technologies that Microsoft has to offer. If you are still struggling to sort through the 1500+ sessions available, let me persuade you to check out my top 5 anticipated sessions for the week.
