This year at Microsoft Ignite 2015, we spoke with a lot of attendees looking for solutions to their everyday automation needs. As expected, with the global push toward cloud computing, cloud provisioning via workload automation tended to be something that IT professionals wanted to discuss, especially in the area of in-house virtual system provisioning. From our conversations, it often wound up as “something we are looking to do in the future”.
This year’s Gartner Symposium/ITxpo is just a few weeks away. Advanced Systems Concepts is once again looking forward to the event as it gives us an opportunity to talk with analysts and IT executives about IT automation and their individual needs. We are especially excited for this year’s keynote speakers, Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft, Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple and Chief Scientist at Fusion-io, Peter Thiel, Technology Entrepreneur and Investor, and John Zimmer, Co-Founder & President of Lyft Inc.
The topic of this year’s Symposium is “Driving Digital Business”. As businesses increasingly rely on technology to be more competitive, CIO's and senior level IT executives must redefine their role in the organization and learn how to optimize digital opportunities and align new technologies with business needs. In particular, we’re excited to hear what new Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has to say given the changes he’s made since taking the helm at Microsoft seven months ago.
