There are more apps, 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. Microsoft’s approach allows IT to get all the benefits of scale, speed, and agility while still protecting existing investments. This means IT can now rapidly build and deploy apps, flexibly manage IT services, and support real-time analytics across all forms of data.

Charlie Russel and Dana Epp are back ! - These two are always fun to be with and provide a great value for your time.

Windows 8.1: Ask Us Everything

CANITPRO.NET, Microsoft Canada’s IT Professional resource blog, has gone to great lengths to provide resources to support the deployment, management and utilization of the Windows 8.1 offering. However, further inquiries are sent to us via social venues, like Twitter or email, in regards to Microsoft’s latest client offering. To provide further support, we will be conducting a user group tour across Canada to personally address IT Professionals questions about Windows 8.1.

Join Anthony Bartolo or Pierre Roman for a 90-minute discussion around the features, functionality, and pretty much any other question you have surrounding the Windows 8.1 offering. Live demos will be provided in response to questions  to further enable the audience to better understand what is possible with Windows 8.1.

So, come ready with your questions surrounding Windows 8.1 as we look forward to the conversation.  If you wish email us your questions ahead of the session at CDN-ITPro-Feedback@microsoft.com
