MS Ignite 2019 – Day 2: Reflections & Predictions

6 Nov 2019 by Chris Cahill

On day two of MS Ignite 2019, we asked our team how this year’s conference is shaping up compared to previous events.

As noted in our day one roundup, a recurring theme is driving user adoption of new technology. Last year, a lot of questions revolved around embracing the modern workplace – i.e. how to get to the cloud – whereas this year the focus has been more on the specifics of onboarding users and maximizing license spend.

Check out this short video to hear the thoughts of Tony, Paul, and Doug (and look out for a cameo appearance from Quadrotech CEO, Thomas Madsen).

MS Ignite 2019: Notes from the ground

Microsoft has been pushing the message that standalone workloads are becoming increasingly integrated, which has helped underline the benefits of our complete Office 365 management platform, Nova.

Having a single SaaS solution for service monitoring, reporting, analytics, delegation and policy control, and tenant to tenant migrations has certainly caught the eye, and our team has been working flat out, with industry professionals queueing up for demos.

There’s also been a surge in sign-ups for our upcoming webinar: 3 Practical Strategies to Boost Office 365 Adoption.

We also caught up with Microsoft MVP Tony Redmond for his thoughts on the day’s announcements, including updates on compliance, and support for sensitivity labels. Watch the video below.

If you’re at the event, we’d love to know what you think about the big Microsoft announcements so far. Our 17-strong team is stationed at booth #841, so be sure to drop by to have a chat and enter our ‘tech tumbler’ giveaway.

Additionally, if your organization is facing an Office 365 tenant to tenant migration, you won’t want to miss Paul’s speaker session on Thursday, November 7. It’s titled ‘Email is the easy part: Five pitfalls to avoid in tenant-to-tenant migrations’, and is scheduled for 12:05 PM in Hub Theater D. You can find more information here.

We’ll bring you more notes from the field tomorrow, so stay tuned to our blog.
