Highlights of Microsoft Ignite 2019

8 Nov 2019 by Chris Cahill

It’s been a phenomenal week at Microsoft Ignite 2019.

Aside from the great feedback we’ve had while showcasing our new Office 365 management software, one of the key things that resonated with our team has been Microsoft’s focus on diversity and inclusivity, with fantastic track sessions such as ‘Futureproofing against bias in tech’ and ‘Supporting coworkers with autism’. You can find links to the recordings here.

As the event wrapped up, we reflected on our highlights in this short video:

Burning bright at MS Ignite

As Bart and Doug mention, it’s been great talking to prospective customers and industry professionals, demoing the full functionality of the solution we’ve built over the past year, and having them validate our vision.

Our comprehensive take on SaaS management certainly turned heads, with Service Providers particularly impressed by Nova’s ability to manage multiple tenants from a single platform. (Which is even more impressive than Robert’s remarkable juggling skills!)

We also had a customer walk up to the stand to say PST Flight Deck was the best IT investment they’ve ever made, which is always heartwarming to hear. Security and compliance was yet again a big theme this year, so please check out our managed services if you need to migrate PST files to Office 365.

On the topic of security, author of Office 365 for IT Pros, Tony Redmond, shares an update on OneDrive here:

As discussed in Office 365 Adoption Strategy: 5 Pitfalls to Avoid and 6 Skills Required to Drive Office 365 Adoption, encouraging end-users to adopt new workloads has been a huge focus of the keynotes at this year’s conference.

As such, the Adoption Accelerator module within Nova has generated lots of interest, and Microsoft MVP Paul Robichaux will soon be hosting a webinar on this very topic:

Microsoft Ignite 2019 has been an absolute blast. A big thank you to the Microsoft team and all the wonderful people we’ve met. We can’t wait to do it all again next year!
