Virtualization & CloudWe want to clarify the cloud:-) Private cloud, Public cloud, PaaS, Saas, Azure, Office365, Hyper-V. There are still a lot of confusion when it comes to the cloud and the services provided. Now we see products that are ready for the customer, and they are moving big time already. We will show you the products, explain the difference between them, and how they really work and what you should consider before going there. Hyper-V comes with new exciting features, and combined with other products the Hyper-V platform needs to be considered. We will show you why.
System ManagementWith Microsoft Lync 2010, Microsoft has really entered the world of communication, including the market of Enterprise Voice. We want to show you how it works, focusing on real-world experience, showing all the add-on tools out there that makes the solution complete.
Unified CommunicationFocusing on Microsoft Security, we will show you the products from the Forefront Suite with best practice from the field. Expect Deep Dives into PKI, NAP, FIM, Direct Access, ADFS etc, focusing as always on practical knowledge that you need when using the products. We will also spend much time on problem-solving, going through the top warnings and errors, and hopefully solve them..
Windows 8We are dedicating a track focusing all on the new operating system Windows 8! You will get news & demos on the new server and client operating system, which will be very different and innovative.
