The world of IT is evolving at a more

dramatic pace than any other time in our industry’s history – and change equals opportunity. It’s our choice whether to embrace change or shy away from it, but if we don’t step up, others will!

Day one is designed to get us thinking about change and how to embrace it. We’ve designed a half-day of content, anchored by journalist Mary Jo Foley and our own Senior Evangelist Rick Claus, that will address some of the hottest industry trends.

  • My career as an IT Pro
    We no longer live in a world where you hold one job for life. Navigating the latest technologies and knowing where to focus your energy can be tough. At the same time, CIOs recognize that our industry has a talent crisis. We’ve asked some industry leaders to share their career thoughts and discuss how they approach change and learning.
  • Security
    Rarely a day goes by when we don’t hear about a high-profile hack or government concerns about cybercrime. Microsoft has the privileged position of partnering with government and organizations to respond to these challenges – and empowering every person on the planet to achieve more is what drives our company. This session will highlight our latest security observations and the steps we’re taking to help everyone stay secure online.
  • How does IT lead the business?
    Is your IT group a cost center or a strategic asset? As the role of IT grows and evolves, how do these changes affect the department and team leadership? We’ll explore how IT shows up in business interactions, the evolving role of IT leaders, and what we can learn from other divisions.
