Unlock the Future of IT

Thank you!

September 26th marked the moment we showed you a glimpse of ‘The Future of IT’ by unveiling the potential of Microsoft Technology in the era of hybrid work.

To do so, we introduced you to the game-changing trio: Windows 365, Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD) and Microsoft Intune. This technology offers you all the tools you need to streamline operations, enhance security, and boost productivity across your enterprise. So check out this blog page for a full recap of the event and future references for those who want to dive further into the matter. 

What to remember – Takeaways

We invited four guests to guide you through the new opportunities and challenges that come with hybrid work.

To start the day properly Patrick Viaene elaborated on the possibilities of hybrid work. Patrick is Modern Workplace Lead at Microsoft and knows the importance of “A PC on every desk and in every home” as Windows was founded on this mission However, in recent years they add “in the cloud and from any device” as their mission statement had to evolve according to an always changing world. Of course, Microsoft is a pioneer in this rapid change. By means of technology for hybrid work they want to digitally connect the employee to his employer. And as this opens up a world of possibilities, Patrick perfectly opened the day with a proper Microsoft introduction.
