Title: Advancing Your Career Through a Mobile and Cloud Mindset Abstract: Microsoft has a mobile-first, cloud-first strategy for the future of IT, and, in this keynote, Brad Anderson, Corporate Vice President of Enterprise Client & Mobility at Microsoft, will discuss how, these two things are now inseparably connected. Devices need cloud services in order to be fully functional, and a cloud with no connecting devices is just “latent potential.” This keynote will explore the impact of mobility + cloud on the IT industry, and Brad will demonstrate how Microsoft’s hybrid cloud strategy acknowledges that amidst all of the change in the IT profession, the role of the cloud will be constant – and growing. With this hybrid future in mind, he will discuss Microsoft’s long-term support and investments in Windows Server as well as hybrid cloud scenarios that make Azure an extension of your datacenter. He will also discuss the work his team is doing to enable Enterprise Mobility Management in the Enterprise Mobility Suite and how this work becomes an extension your existing SCCM and AD deployments. Brad is the first to admit that industry-wide changes like these can be difficult to navigate, but he believes Microsoft’s hybrid cloud approach is the bridge that allows IT Pros to leverage their existing skills (and the existing investments of enterprises) and dramatically extend them with cloud-based tools and functionality. Brad has been responsible for and defined the strategy for the last few releases of Windows Server, System Center, System Center Configuration Manager, Microsoft Intune, Remote Desktop Services and Azure RemoteApp. In this keynote Brad will cover the key trends that have impacted the strategy and how the capabilities Microsoft is delivering enable you to advance your careers and help your organizations differentiate themselves. Check out why Brad believes the future is bright for IT!
