It’s great to be back in Orlando for Microsoft Ignite. This is Microsoft’s biggest event for IT pros and enterprise developers with more than 26,000 people joining us from over 100 countries. Ignite is all about our customers—of course they attend, but we also give the mic to customers to participate in Satya’s and other executives’ keynotes, as well as sessions and workshops. Literally hundreds of sessions at Ignite are led by customers, such as Buhler, Shell, H&M and others.
We made a lot of announcements this morning for and with our customers. A few quick highlights:
- We continued to share how we’re making security a priority for customers by declaring an end to the era of passwords.
- At Microsoft, we have a practical view and approach with the idea that AI can be used for good, which is also the guiding principle we’ve used in creating all the new AI and data products and initiatives we shared today.
- We announced new IoT and Edge Computing products that are making everything from smart spaces to employees more efficient and productive.
- We introduced the Open Data Initiative with Adobe and SAP to help companies connect, understand and use all their data to create amazing experiences for their customers with AI.
If you weren’t able to join us in Orlando, you can watch Satya’s keynote on demand. There’s also a ton of great sessions available to watch virtually. And check out all the other exciting news we shared with customers today.
