Here is our story of Day 1 at Microsoft Ignite Conference. A very early start to collect our swag – free rucksack and goodies – a quick breakfast and into the two keynote speeches. Some broad outlines of Microsoft vision and future direction with some Quantum leaps in compute power in our future! But nice to see Microsoft also focusing on the future of our children as well.

Then on to some serious learning for the main part of the day.

A great session on GDPR, if you conduct any business in the EU or with people in the EU this is coming and it will affect you. IDCIT are perfectly placed with our strategic partners to help you ensure you are ready for this wide reaching legislative change. You cannot hide from this and potential penalties for non-compliance are huge so why risk it! More sessions on this during the week to come, ensuring we keep up to date with how best to help our clients.

As a Microsoft Gold Partner IDCIT can access Fast Track on behalf of our clients to help with smooth and efficient migrations to Office 365 and Azure, so always good to learn more about new developments in another session this afternoon.

We never stop learning as IT Pros, sometimes it can seem daunting to people. How do you keep up with all the fast-paced changes in the modern Microsoft IT world, well a good session on that today. Don’t be afraid IDCIT can help, we will not let you be left behind! We can offer a wide ride of training with our Microsoft MCT qualified staff.

And then the final session looking at more secure service accounts, an option that has been around for several years now. But one that is often overlooked and there are some newer options too. Ask IDCIT about how to create more secure service accounts for your organisation, we would be happy to help!

Learning done for day 1, great start to the week and very excited for a full day of learning tomorrow. Up bright and early tomorrow, 07:30 start to make sure we can fit everything in and we cannot wait!
