Microsoft Tech Summit 2018

This January our director David attended the 2018 Microsoft Tech Summit held at the NEC, Birmingham. This was a technical learning event for IT professionals and developers and it was a great opportunity to build on cloud skills with the latest in Azure and Microsoft 365. Whilst at the summit, David took full advantage of learning from Microsofts’ top engineers, evolving his skills and deepening his expertise in Microsoft products.


The summit is a great place to discover the latest trends, tools, and products with a whopping 80 plus sessions covering a wide range of focus areas and topics. This gathering of like-minded business people was not only a chance to learn from some of the best minds of Microsoft, it was also a great way to meet and connect with other partners, visit the community theatre and share best practices.


Cloudy Group is dedicated to providing the versatile 365 Office packages to our clients and this summit was an excellent opportunity to find out the latest apps within this and how to pass this onto our clients. Naturally, the subject of the upcoming GDPR compliance was a hot topic and there was some very useful and informative discussion around Microsofts GDPR Compliance Manager tool and how best we can help our clients utilise this.


It was a really inspiring two days where David could experience how much the cloud is really changing expectations and transforming the way we live and work. It was an ample opportunity to discover the latest trends, tools and keynote speeches whether you were already cloud-savvy or just getting started on the cloud journey. Cloudy Group is proud to be MS Partners with Microsoft and attending summits like this each year not only helps us lead our organisation through real digital transformation, it also helps us arm our clients with the tools to do the same and shape our digital future.
