Azure has had an enormous boost in new features that enable new cloud computing scenarios, increase enterprise-readiness and greatly improve integration with developer tooling such as Visual Studio. One of my favorites is the Microsoft Azure Marketplace with over 3500 cloud based and optimized solutions that can be deployed for production use with one click. These range from tuned Virutal Machines to developer services, API- or Web-Apps to data services, that can be used to enhance custom solutions. Other new features include the release of the Azure based SQL Database v12, the Microsoft Operations Management Suite, the all new IoT Suite and related Azure services like the IoT hub or the Cortana Analytics Suite and many more.
For TechDays 2016 we have carefully selected the top speakers to present these topics in various sessions, including Vittorio Bertocci, Principal Program Manager in the Microsoft Azure Active Directory Team in Redmond, Roland Krummenacher from bbv, Microsoft Azure MVP and overall cloud development wizard as well as the duo Markus Erlacher and Marcel Zender from itnetX, keynote speakers and organizers of System Center Universe 2015 – and many more.
We are happy to announce that Marc Holitscher, Microsoft National Technology Officer and member of the board at Microsoft Switzerland will be giving a keynote on “Trusted Cloud Computing“ with interesting insights how Microsoft built Azure around security and scalability.
