A Keynote insight..

‘Transform your datacentre with Microsoft Cloud OS’ by Julius Davies (Wed & Thurs  10:30 – 11:00)

Respond to changing business needs with the power of a hybrid cloud from Microsoft. See how Windows Server 2012 R2, System Center 2012 R2 and Windows Azure combine to take the big, complicated, heterogeneous infrastructure you have today and bring it forward into the new world of cloud. You can take advantage of the boundless capacity the cloud offers, while still meeting requirements for security and compliance. You can reduce cost and complexity with technology innovation in areas like storage and networking. And you can deliver services to the business faster with a platform that makes you more agile and more productive.

‘Microsoft Cloud OS – the vision and modern platform that is delivering new forms of value today!’ by Mike Schutz and Daniel Roache-Rooke (Thurs 09:50 – 10:20)

It’s a new day in IT. There are more applications, more devices, and now, more data than ever — all driven by the rise of cloud computing and the use of cloud services. With these technologies playing an ever present role in businesses, how can IT drive more efficiency and deliver new forms of value? Microsoft’s answer is the Cloud OS.  Hear how this approach allows IT to get all the benefits of scale, speed, and agility while still protecting existing investments.  Hear directly from Aston Martin on how they are driving performance, strategy and innovation with the power of a modern cloud platform.
