Microsoft Inspire 2018: Day 1 Recap

Client Computing | Posted on July 17, 2018 by Luke Black

This week, the Softchoice team is on the ground in Las Vegas, attending Microsoft Inspire 2018 – Microsoft’s biggest partner conference – and I’m excited to bring you the latest news and announcements.

The conference opened with an inspiring keynote presentation about digital transformation and the way people now experience life through technology. As Microsoft channel leaders took the stage to talk about opportunities for Microsoft and its partners, I was particularly excited to hear about the following news:

  • Windows Analytics will allow companies to scan applications on the compatibility to move to Windows 10, enabling IT to quickly obtain insights into the health and efficiency of their environment.
  • Windows Autopilot will facilitate end user productivity by allowing IT to deploy full Microsoft profiles to new devices, including end user logs, complete Windows OS and Microsoft applications.

As a Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (CSP), Gold Certified Partner and Licensing Solutions Provider (LSP), Softchoice helps hundreds of customers leverage Azure and Office 365 to increase their IT agility and enable their end users. The Inspire conference is a unique opportunity for us to explore new partnership opportunities with Microsoft and learn about their upcoming technology innovations and roadmaps to lead to new initiatives such as our Microsoft Azure CSP offering with Managed Services.

I will report back tomorrow on Day 2 with more news as we look forward to further announcements from the company, specifically around licensing roadmaps. In the meantime, follow our Softchoice team on social media via #SCInspire18, and connect with me on Twitter @lukeblack for more frequent updates from Las Vegas.
