With a focus on healthcare, retail, manufacturing and government, we will examine how those industries are being shaped by the technology and software aimed at improving efficiency and expanding the capabilities of their professionals.  The introduction of touch-enabled devices coupled with Cloud capabilities facilitate some innovative scenarios for industry focused ISVs.

As part of your commitment to the Microsoft Vertical ISV Partnership (VIP) Program, we would like to invite you to a 1-day workshop targeted at helping you broaden your platform reach and utilize the latest technologies available from Microsoft. In this session, Microsoft Technical Evangelists will provide technical content, hands on labs, and design inspiration geared specifically for software used in the industries above.

We encourage you to join us in person, but are offering the option to attend online to those unable. Please proceed through registration to secure your space either online or in person.  In an effort to keep the workshop intimate space is limited, we recommend that you register quickly to secure your space.
