IT Professional Kick-Off Session: The Modern Datacentre Revisited – R2 to the Max!
What a difference a year makes. Hot on the heels of the release of Windows Server 2012 and System Center 2012; we have the R2 releases of both of these products coming later this year. This year Jeff Alexander will be joined by the A-team from Microsoft Corporation who will discuss the latest releases of Windows Server 2012, System Center 2012 and Windows Azure and how they can transform your datacentre to enable IT to have more impact on the business than ever before.
Keynote: Blink and you’ll miss it
After 20 years of TechEd, one thing remains true. Tech development shows no sign of slowing down, nor does our appetite for it. As we continue moving at an ever-faster pace, we’ll explore just how things have changed in the past 20 years – and how there is a fundamental shift in the way we need to operate now. For anyone involved in the tech industry, TechEd is the only place to find out where we’re headed. Join Adam Pisoni, Co-Founder of Yammer.
