We would like to personally welcome and invite each of you to the European SharePoint, Office 365 and Azure Conference 2019 in Prague. It’s an exciting time for the programme team as the business we are in and the surrounding technology is changing faster than ever before. The move to the cloud has changed much more than the technology side and requires us to re-think our solutions to provide the agility and information needs in today’s and tomorrow’s world.
Microsoft’s cloud services have matured significantly over the last couple of years and the power of AI and the importance of security in our solution has become more important than ever before. Last year, in Copenhagen we started with a dedicated track for Azure and this year we will build on top of that. The programme team has been extended with one additional Azure Regional Director to compile an even better Azure programme than last year.
We would like to give you an idea of what you can expect at this year’s conference. The Office 365 track will be covering the latest innovations in the platform with a strong focus on Microsoft Teams and the Power Platform.
In the Azure track, we have found a nice balance between architecture, infrastructure, governance and development topics. In more than 40 sessions we will cover Logic Apps, Functions, Terraform, Machine Learning, Blueprints, Cosmos DB, Cognitive Services, DevOps, Azure Search, Data factory, Azure AD and many more. We are sure that you will always find something interesting and new to learn.
In the agenda, you will find six keynotes covering the key areas of this year’s programme. Already confirmed are Jeff Teper [Corporate Vice President, Microsoft Office, OneDrive, SharePoint and Office Media Group] who together with his team will present the latest vision and roadmap for Microsoft 365. Also confirmed are Scott Hanselman [Partner Programme Manager at Microsoft] and Vesa Juvonen [Senior Programme Manager, OneDrive – SharePoint engineering] who will cover the latest news and announcements around the different extensibility options in the Office 365 platform. Miri Rodriguez is a globally recognised Storyteller and Head of Global Internship Program at Microsoft and will share how in the digital age, the very thing that makes us human is what will enable us to successfully keep us relevant individually and in the marketplace.
At ESPC19, we hope that you will be inspired by the latest on Azure and Office 365. Prague is a beautiful city and nice place to socialise and discuss the latest innovation with friends and subject matter experts.
Hope to see you all in Prague.
