Azure, Windows Server 2016 and EMM Events Coming to help solve the Talent Gap

Some of the same challenges CIO’s face today have been the top challenges of the last four years running.   Gartner has released their 2016 Top CIO Priorities and Challenges (http://www.gartner.com/imagesrv/cio/pdf/cio_agenda_insights_2016.pdf) and yet again talent, or lack thereof, tops the list. “Talent has now been recognized globally as the single biggest issue standing in the way of CIOs achieving their objectives.”  Topping the talent gap is:

Þ     Information /Analytics

Þ     Business Knowledge Acumen

Þ     Security and Risk Management

“Talent has now been recognized globally as the single biggest issue standing in the way of CIOs achieving their objectives.”

To help combat this talent gap our speakers will deliver relevant content at all of our upcoming events.

TechNet on Tour | Certification Jump Start

70-534 Architecting Azure Solutions

70-534The Certification class will cover the 70-534 Architecting Azure Solutions.  All attendees will go home with a copy of the Microsoft Press Book.  The events have not been locked yet but it is looking like they will happen May-June and include Philadelphia, Chicago, LA and online. If any organizations or groups would like to plan and organize a dedicated event, send an email request to ITProGuru@Microsoft.com. 
A typical agenda looks like the following:

Trial | Brainstorming Team Technology Workshop

If you are in the North East US … do you have any interest in a Team Workshop for your business or group?  Send an email to itproguru@microsoft.com Teach your team how to “think outside the box”, “understand how to leverage technology to solve business challenges or execute on opportunities”.  Now taking applications.  This is a free training but I need either a large number of people from a single company (30’ish) or for smaller groups, we can do multi-company workshops where each company is a team. Workshop formats available 60 mins, 1/4 day, 1/2 day, 1 day, multi-day.
