Microsoft Ignite 2016 Webianr


#1: Microsoft Is Preferable To Ever!

  • Ignite 2016 was much, a lot better than the very first Ignite in 2015. I believe in the feedback both in the customers and individuals we spoken to who attended were built with a great experience, but more to the point, were built with a obvious vision and obvious picture of where Microsoft’s headed.
  • First of all, Microsoft has returned. And what i’m saying by assuming you appear at the innovations and introductions that Microsoft does, really, they’re forward thinking and searching toward how they may assist the enterprise.
  • Within the keynote of the first day, Julia White-colored, Corporate V . P . of Microsoft, who takes care of Azure, spoken concerning the concept of It’s now altered. IT today means “innovation technology.”

[Take a look at my interview with Julia White-colored, as she and that i talk innovation and transformation at Microsoft Ignite 2016]

  • Microsoft and also the new are generally exciting and galvanizing. And it is because is the fact that each one of these suite of technologies that Microsoft offers within the cloud, we are able to truly innovate which help the company grow and most importantly not be worried about maintaining your lights on.

 #2: SharePoint Has Returned!

  • SharePoint has returned. Kudos towards the SharePoint team, SharePoint OneDrive team to become more specific.
  • They put in many innovations, but more to the point, they took in towards the customer. Previously couple of years, you can state that, “Look, we haven’t really heard everything from SharePoint or OneDrive,” however with the leadership of Shaun Teper and Seth Patton, they’ve done lots of innovation and they’re much more transparent in communicating in regards to what the roadmap appears like.

#3: Clients are Ready for Office 365

  • Customers today are prepared for that cloud. And it is not only us, you realize, small customers or commercial customers, customers over the spectrum all over the world, they see the need for the cloud, they do know what Microsoft has.
  • And not just for me personally however for us as AvePoint, that’s thrilling because having the ability to work with Microsoft, supporting our people to drive better business value using their technology and investments, it’s really a thrilling factor.

Observation #1 from Microsoft Ignite 2016:

My greatest observation was the astonishing kind of response and curiosity about both SharePoint and Office 365 Groups really was, really effective and that i thought, you realize, very good news for all of us, clearly, because that’s an area we play pretty hardcore in. – John Peluso, Sr. VP of Product Strategy at AvePoint

Observation #2 from Microsoft Ignite 2016:

My greatest observation there is in the first Ignite, everybody was shocked at just how much Office 365 had been pressed lower everyone’s throat. It had been a substitute for that SharePoint Conference and everybody was like, “What about SharePoint Server?” Which time, we really didn’t have that feedback whatsoever. Nearly every customer we spoken either to had a part of Office 365 deployed today or was prepared to dive all in on Groups in a manner that we’ve never really seen before. So certainly the temperature from the marketplace is altering. – John Hodges, VP of Product Strategy at AvePoint

Observation #3 from Microsoft Ignite 2016:

My greatest takeaway from Ignite only agreed to be how broad the privacy and compliance implications have become once we transfer to this latest hybrid taxonomy and just how we’re likely to handle that continuing to move forward. – Ben Oster, Product Analyst at AvePoint

Observation #4 from Microsoft Ignite 2016:

Observation #5 from Microsoft Ignite 2016:

My greatest at Ignite, there’s a couple of things really, SharePoint has returned, and 2nd may be the conversations are extremely mature now with regards to the cloud, right? People aren’t kicking and screaming about visiting the clouds. They’ve recognized the very fact, they’re now searching at methods to better innovate and also be their business within the cloud. – Dux Raymond Sy, Microsoft MVP and Chief Technology Officer of AvePoint Public Sector
