Back to Blog Listing

C2 Software attend the Microsoft World Partner Conference in Washington D.C. Highlights from the Vision Keynote delivered on Monday 14th July 2014 follow.

The keynote was delivered by a range of senior leaders at Microsoft:. Scott Guthrie delivered a presentation on Azure and a Power BI demo later on went down as a major highlight: 

  • Ability to analyze data using cloud based service
  • Can be pointed to wide range of data sources including Dynamics CRM and Salesforce
  • Can deliver amazing dashboards with ease
  • As this is in the cloud it is available very quickly as it is a software as a service solution

C2 will be researching this offering with a view to bringing it to market for customers. Watch out for further opinion on this.

Kevin Turner also outlined Microsoft’s key strategy on the big 5 trends:  cloud, mobility, social business intelligence, big data and security as well as its focus on competition and customer service. 

The security element in particular is new and we believe this is a major new area relating to products and services. 

Announcements relating to Azure were also put forward: of particular interest was a hybrid cloud solution for  backup and disaster recovery for on premises servers to the cloud.
