We’re excited to be kicking off Ignite this week in Chicago – doing it on Star Wars day is a nice bonus as the Exchange team is here in full force. It has been great catching up with our customers and Exchange MVPs as we prepare for this action-packed week. At Ignite we will begin sharing details about Exchange Server 2016 and dig deep into features in available in Office 365. You can catch many of us between the sessions on the expo floor showing off the latest demos or just geeking out on all things Exchange.
For those of you who made the journey to Ignite we look forward to seeing you in the more than 100 Exchange and Outlook sessions happening this week. If you couldn’t make it to Ignite in person, no problem—all Ignite sessions are being recorded and published for public viewing within a day or two after they happen. See the full list here.
The Meet Exchange Server 2016 session is where we kick-off the first round of details about the next version of Exchange Server. This session will be live streamed to everyone on http://ignite.microsoft.com on Tuesday May 5th at 10:45 AM Central time. The sessions will dig in from here, including a don’t-miss session on the Exchange Preferred Architecture with Ross Smith IV and the first set of guidance on deploying Exchange Server 2016 with Brian Day. Of course this event isn’t just about Exchange Sever 2016 – we are excited to see the dynamic duo of Perry Clarke and Vivek Sharma deliver the next chapter of Behind the Curtain: Running Exchange Online and numerous drill down sessions on features like document collaboration, Outlook, clutter, and many more.
For now we’re off to a busy and exciting week to share the latest news about Exchange and hear from our awesome Exchange community. You can follow the action all week long on Twitter with the hashtags #iammec and #MSIgnite.
