Microsoft's Build Registration Opens February 27th
Earlier this year, we saw dates on Microsoft’s website that said that Build would be May 7-9 but thanks to their updated website, the company has shifted the dates slightly to the 6-8. Like the past couple of years, the event will be held at the company’s headquarters in Seattle, Washington.
If you are looking to attend the event, registration opens February 27th and you can find out more information, here.
Like last year, Microsoft’s developer conference overlaps with Google’s IO, which is being held May 7-9th. Obviously, this means you can’t attend both but this wasn’t a big issue last year as both conferences tend to attract slightly different audiences.
Say Goodbye to Traditional PC Lifecycle Management
Traditional IT tools, including Microsoft SCCM, Ghost Solution Suite, and KACE, often require considerable custom configurations by T3 technicians (an expensive and often elusive IT resource) to enable management of a hybrid onsite + remote workforce. In many cases, even with the best resources, organizations are finding that these on-premise tools simply cannot support remote endpoints consistently and reliably due to infrastructure limitations.
As for what the company will talk about at the event? It’s a still bit too far out to fully know but I expect to hear about Windows Lite and if we are lucky, possibly next generation Hololens content too. And of course, there will be lots of talk about Azure, IoT, and the company’s graph too.
