Microsoft held its annual Ignite conference last week, drawing over 30,000 developers and IT professionals to the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.
- Microsoft is focused on establishing a future for AI by ensuring that edge connectivity and cloud computing are secure and widely available.
- The three themes of Microsoft Ignite 2018 were Security, AI & Big Data, and IoT & Edge Computing.
- Microsoft is partnering with SAP and Adobe to deliver the Open Data Initiative.
While Microsoft had a list of exciting product announcements, speeches, and sessions throughout the week (ICYMI, they’re available online), the keynote address given by Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, and the context his keynote added to the conference, is getting much of the post-conference attention.
