Partner Session - Microsoft's Modern Data Architecture for Structured and Unstructured Data
Join us on 6th June at 10am for a webinar around Microsoft's Modern Data Architecture for Structured and Unstructured Data and find out how you can engage as a partner to maximise the opportunity.
Data has become the strategic asset used to transform businesses to uncover new insights. Traditionally, data has been gathered in an enterprise data warehouse where it serves as the central version of the truth. However, the world of data is rapidly evolving in ways that are transforming the industry and motivating enterprises to consider new approaches of gaining insights. Beyond the traditional sources from transactional systems, ERP, CRM, and LOB applications, new types of data sources are driving analytics that are transformative to the business.

Dynamics Partners Careers Fair
3-7PM, 14th June 2018,
Microsoft office, Cafe@5 (5th Floor), 2 Kingdom St, Paddington, London, W2 6BD
80% of IT Leaders think Cloud Skills are important for digital transformation and 38% of organisations have struggled to find the right skills in the last 12 months. With only 11% of young people choosing to take their GCSE in computing and 73K across the UK graduating from a college or University in a STEM subject, there is no talent pipeline that is going to fill this burgeoning gap. The UK is facing an imminent "Digital Deficit" that requires channels and organisations to innovate and think differently about the way they recruit their future employees and leaders.
Join us at Microsoft's London offices at 2 Kingdom Street to hear how organizations can adapt during this time through learning, building proactive talent strategies, introducing early in career programs and effectively cross skilling new recruits to enable a swift return on your investment.
Come meet and hear from internal Microsoft stakeholders and our external Partners that we are working with who can help you inject much needed talent into your organisations and energise your recruitment strategy:
- 3 Dynamics Apprenticeship Providers: covering level 3,4 and 6
- The FDM Group - Advanced Graduate Scheme in Dynamics 365
- Cognitive Senior Program Manager Vendor Compete Program

This is an invitation-only session and registration is required to reserve your place.
