With so many different technologies and new announcements, let us summarize what we learnt from the show...

Microsoft's biggest event of the year is now just over one month away and we couldn't be more excited! Not only will we have a booth (#1132), but many of the partners that use our Dashworks software daily will also be there, as well as hopefully some new partners interested in combining their services with our products. Formerly known as the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference, the show was renamed Microsoft Inspire to align with other flagship conferences, including Microsoft Build and Microsoft Ignite.
Microsoft Inspire is scheduled to run July 9 to July 13 in Washington, D.C. at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. As usual, current and future partners can look forward to connecting and also attending sessions and Vision Keynotes, which are slated to run from 8:45 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. on July 10-12. The keynotes that have been announced so far are those by Satya Nadella, Ron Huddleston, Judson Althoff, Gavriella Schuster, Toni Townes-Whitley, CVP, Public Sector and Industry; Kirk Koenigsbauer, CVP, Office Marketing, who will be presenting at the Verizon Center. Also, make sure you don't miss this year's Partner Celebration with Carrie Underwood on July 12 from 7 to 10.30pm at the Nationals park!
Juriba is proud to announce our first major product update of 2017: Dashworks 5.1! Having readied more than 5 million IT assets for migration across various enterprises, we continue to drive significant product innovation to help ensure that for your organization, having the right tools in place to help you get the job done as efficiently as possible, is the key to major IT transformation project success.
Over the past year we have talked to hundreds of IT professionals. Some are enterprise IT project managers heading up large Windows 10 migration or Office 365 roll out projects, while others are CIOs and CTOs concerned about creating an Evergreen IT environment that will enable them to stay nimble and on top of their IT landscape. Either way, their goal is to drive Digital Transformation as effectively and efficiently as possible.
No matter who we spoke to, there was one common thread in all conversations. Today's IT departments are already stretched thin just trying to chip away at the ever-increasing mountain of compounding IT technical debt. But they also must keep pace with the faster cadence of changes (e.g., Windows 10 Branching, Office 365 additions) and lead the charge of the digital transformation efforts their CEO is demanding and the industry is heading toward — regardless of whether or not they are positioned to do so.
2016 has been a great year so far, first with Dashworks 4.3 released in June and now, just 4 months later, with Dashworks 5.0! After having readied for migration more than 5 million assets across various enterprises, we have collected significant feedback and learned from our experience that having the right tools in place to help you get the job done as efficiently as possible is the key to any major IT transformation project.

The biggest Microsoft event for IT professionals ended just over two weeks ago now and it couldn’t have been more exciting!

With the first anniversary of the initial Windows 10 release just behind us, it becomes clear that despite having been the fastest adopted Microsoft operating system ever in the consumer space, there are some pain points for enterprise adoption which need to be addressed.

With the Microsoft Partner Conference over a month behind us, we reflected on the things we learned, the conversations we had, and the relationships we were able to build.
