March will come in like a lion this year, thanks to Microsoft. The three-day Microsoft Ignite 2021 kicks off on March 2. This year’s event is online-only because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, but while there will be no live audience, the tech giant promises it will still be extremely lively.
Because Microsoft Ignite 2021 is online-only, it may actually be more inclusive than past Ignites. The events typically attract a core audience of developers and IT professionals who can spend three days (and a considerable sum of money) at the live site. But this year, Microsoft says Ignite 2021 “is for anyone who is motivated to be on the frontier of innovation and tech.” Microsoft says the keynote speeches and sessions will be of interest not only to developers and IT pros but to a wide range of “IT implementers,” such as those who make enterprise technology purchasing decisions and those responsible for overseeing security solutions. And despite the fact the event is online-only, you will be able to participate in live question-and-answer sessions.
As for what’s on the Microsoft Ignite 2021 agenda, there will be a lot of news on innovative technology, especially artificial intelligence and augmented reality. And, of course, news and updates on Microsoft 365 and Microsoft Azure will be everywhere. Microsoft chief executive Satya Nadella will be one of the keynote speakers.
As usual, Microsoft promises a whole lot of fun along with the education — and this year, you can experience it all from the comfort of your computing chair. For example, Microsoft says to expect “mind-blowing demos, opportunities to fly a drone, and a chance to win a special edition Microsoft AI flight jacket!”
