We’re very excited to be attending Microsoft’s Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) next week in beautiful Toronto, Canada.
As a long-standing Gold Microsoft Partner, we’re heading to WPC to network with partners, share our knowledge, and learn about what new technologies are on the horizon. We’ll be sharing updates throughout the conference here on our blog, and across social media.
This year, we are sponsoring award-winning Scottish business journalist Bill Magee to report from WPC. Our own Business Development Manager, Brian Douglas, will be there too – if you’re at WPC and would like to network with us, please drop us a line.
Inspiration, innovation, action
At the heart of each of the three days is a vision keynote – one themed on each topic of inspiration, innovation and action. The vision keynotes offer a chance to hear Microsoft’s corporate vision, direct from the corporation’s senior leaders, including CEO Satya Nadella.
The Cloud is likely to remain the hot topic this year, with Office 365 going from strength to strength, plus the introduction of the integrated cloud platform Dynamics 365 announced this week.
Expect to hear about the march towards the cloud, big data and the growth of powerful business intelligence tools. There might be coverage of the surge in artificial intelligence bots – like Microsoft’s own Cortana and Tay – and we may even learn more about Microsoft’s plans for their recent mega-acquisition, LinkedIn.
You don’t have to travel to Toronto to experience the conference: Microsoft will be sharing videos of the vision keynotes each day on the WPC site. And we’ll have our own exclusive updates and blog posts throughout the conference, covering some of the announcements most relevant to companies who want to collaborate, share and use information better.
