The Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) is in Toronto next week. I won’t be going; it’s more important for networking and sales folks. But there are a few reasons that it is of interest to me.
- Keynotes: Last year we got some snippets such as the early announcements on Hyper-V replica and the then scalability figures. On Monday it is Steve Ballmer headlining and it looks like we’re getting cloud-cloud-cloud. On Tuesday … I really can’t figure out a theme other than cloud-cloud-cloud. On Wednesday it is the Microsoft Partner Network – maybe the website has been burned to the ground? Kevin Turner will also be talking compete on Wednesday. Some hippie will also be smoothing your chakras – incense optional.
- No SBS 2012: A lot of Irish MSFT partners specialise in the SBS space so I want to hear what they thing of the move to Windows Server 2012 Essentials.
- What’s the plan for Windows 8/Server 2012: What will MSFT be telling partners about the enterprise and retail spaces?
