Microsoft Ignite 2015 Conference – Topics Released

Microsoft did a great job in merging multiple conferences into one conference called Microsoft Ignite Conference. Let us look forward to see what is there for Exchange.

Previously we published a blog to introduce you with Ignite Conference here – http://msexchangeguru.com/2014/10/19/microsoft-ignite-spark-the-future-may-4-may-8-2015/

At the same time Microsoft liked Ignite word a lot because Microsoft and Ignite we are listening from long term. Microsoft had designed Exchange 2013 training program for premier customers with the name Ignite and we can also watch some Exchange training videos with name Ignite on the internet.

Microsoft Ignite 2015 Conference is scheduled between May 04th 2015 and May 08th 2015 at Chicago, USA.

Merging the conferences is a great idea so that everyone can be approachable at one place rather than travelling to multiple places, taking or giving time out to the team multiple times in the year or travelling to multiple places with different weather condition and adopting them.

Makes sure to watch Exchange Team blog and small video by Greg Taylor and Jeff Mealiffe here – http://blogs.technet.com/b/exchange/archive/2015/01/28/get-the-inside-scoop-on-exchange-at-microsoft-ignite.aspx
