At the end of August, we’re holding the Microsoft Australian Partner Conference (APC) and the Australian Tech·Ed Conference. They are both key ways to keep up to date with what’s going on today, and what’s coming up - APC is perfect for non-technical staff whereas Tech·Ed is the perfect geek fest.
There will be a big focus on the Private Cloud at Tech·Ed this year, as well as some of the product launches just around the corner - such as the new version of SQL Server.
Private Cloud at Tech·Ed 2011
As the demand for technical professionals who understand Private Cloud, including cloud implementation and development grows, it’s important to stay on top of the latest advancements – and nothing equips you to do this like Tech·Ed 2011.
A recent Gartner report identified Microsoft as a leader in the Virtualisation market, and at Tech·Ed 2011, you’ll learn Microsoft’s overall Virtualisation strategy, key strengths and where the future is headed.
However, Virtualisation is just the start on the journey to Cloud Computing. Tech·Ed will help you to discover how Microsoft offers the simplest path to building a Private Cloud, using the infrastructure you are already familiar with.
You could also walk away from Tech·Ed 2011 with new industry certifications in Virtualisation – the key skills you need to help your organisation and your customers build a Private Cloud and to help yourself, by increasing your professional value.
Last year Tech·Ed sold out – so I’d recommend that you don’t delay.
