All this week we’ll be in Orlando, Florida for Microsoft Ignite, the showcase event on every technology company’s radar. Ignite is an annual conference which explores the latest technology and allows attendees to meet with tech innovators from across the globe.

What to Expect

This year, visitors to Microsoft Ignite can expect more than 700 sessions, insights and roadmaps from industry leaders. There will also be countless deep dive gatherings and live demos happening every day. Totalling more than 1,000 hours of learning, it’s an intensive but worthwhile experience.

The conference also offers visitors the opportunity to network with other Microsoft partners. As Microsoft puts it, it’s the perfect venue to ‘connect with techies’ facing many of the similar challenges to gain best practice advice.

Traditionally, Microsoft Ignite has been a venue for big announcements and launches, so watch this space!

This Year’s Conference

This year the agenda is brim-full with interesting topics of discussion. These include, intelligent security, connecting your business with IoT and Big Data. As always, however, a major highlight is sure to be the keynote by Satya Nadella, Microsoft CEO. He is expected to speak on Microsoft’s vision for important emerging trends.

For those wondering what that means, Nadella may have already given a little hint: “The future is going to be about people working with machines. So that means you have got to be able to understand machines and how they work. There is no walk of life that is not going to require computational understanding.”

Built entirely on Microsoft Azure and Office365, Automated Intelligence’s flagship products provide leading solutions for our customers and their data. That’s why we look forward to spending an intensive week learning about the cutting edge of enterprise technology.
