We're offering a series of technical training events for partners, focusing on the new Office and Office 365. They are coming up over the next few months – first in Melbourne in December, and then in Brisbane and Perth in early 2013 (What, 2013 already. Where's the year gone?).
The Exchange, Office and Office 365 Ignite workshop has been designed as deep technical training for IT implementers and Exchange administrators, who either develop, design or deploy for their organisations or customers.
The EXO Ignite workshop spans three days to ensure quality of coverage across all product associated workloads. Topics of the training range from new capabilities, design, deployment and management considerations for these technologies. The training content is a mix of presentations and hands-on labs that parallel real world experience delivered by Microsoft certified experts.
During the event, you will also have the opportunity to interact and learn from your industry peers and representatives from Microsoft.
The content provided throughout the course requires both a technical background and experience with prior versions of the product and/or service in order for the content to be valuable.
Venues, dates and agenda for the Ignite workshops in Australia
- Melbourne: 4 – 6 December, 2012
- Brisbane: 30 January - 1 February 2013
- Perth: 30 January - 1 February 2013
You can see the full agenda on the link below, but in a nutshell it breaks down into three significant chunks:
- Day One: Introducing the new Office, Office 365 and the Office App Model
- Day Two: Deep dives for Exchange & Office, including compliance, data loss prevention, client management and service delivery
- Day Three: Office 365 deployment, including hybrid scenarios
This means the agenda will address some of the hot topics in education use of Office too – like compliance and hybrid implementation of Office 365 (for example, where staff and researchers are run through an on-premise Exchange system and students are in the Office 365 for education cloud service)
There's a charge for the training – $150 – which is so minimal, I assume it's to make sure you actually turn up!
