Microsoft Ignite went virtual this year and according to the social media responses (and my experience too) – the conference was a huge success. Besides the live session experience, sessions were repeated to suite for other time zones (with was very nice for us Europeans – Thanks Ignite Team!)
My days during the conference only had 24 hours and too many interesting sessions happened in parallel! But luckily, the sessions are now available as on-demand sessions:
Take a seat, sit down comfortably and enjoy the sessions!
Welcome to another episode of my #DataNews series. In the past week I found some interesting stuff I find you should have a look at.
Microsoft Ignite 2020
Last week was MS Ignite 2020 week. Three days full of technical sessions, announcements and networking fun. My experience of the Ignite online conference was a great one – The sessions were broadcasted three times – one time live and two times as on-demand sessions.
During some Microsoft Ignite 2020 (#MSIgnite) sessions, new icons for the members of the Power Platform have been revealed: One of their first appearances was during James Phillips session – Gap and Supercharge Organizational Agility:
This week is Microsoft Ignite week and this year is a special edition – Ignite has gone digital and online this year.
In “normal” years, MS Ignite was one of the biggest (if not biggest) Microsoft tech conferences. I had no chance to visit an in-person Ignite so far, but this year I already spent and will spend some hours in front the PC to watch some sessions live.
Schedule – Live Sessions and On-Demand option
The Ignite team put great work into creating and providing a schedule feasible for different timezones. As I read, every session will be provide three times – at least once live plus to recordings adjusted to different time zones. And if you are not able to watch the sessions during the “official” conference time, the sessions will be available on-demand afterwards.
Power BI / Power Platform Sessions and Announcements
As you may have noticed in the past, I am a little bit into the topic Power BI and Power Platform. And these technologies are heavily included in the #MSIgnite schedule this year.
The Power BI team created an overview page listing all the Power BI sessions
Let’s dive a little bit deeper: Data Culture is a thing not only for individuals, but also for teams and organizations. Starting with easy and powerful reporting support for individuals, stepping up to support teams to make the right decisions and reaching the enterprises with support for professional development, reporting and data tasks.
Many features have been announced during the (keynote) sessions:
Some of the mentioned features are already available for testing, some are coming soon and others are planned to be available later in this year. Please have a look at Aruns blog post for a detailed description – I will only summarize the availability of these features in a small table: (taken from here, 2020-09-23 //13:15)
Long time ago, I tried to collect some interesting information pieces found on social media and technology blogs.
I hope that this journey continues for a longer time now.. this time, I challenged myself with already scheduled entries for the next weeks.. so.. if I do not change the post and add no links, you’ll get a blog post like this.. 🙂
