We’ve listened to your feedback about last year’s Windows 8 Commercial Flexible Workstyle event, which is why we’re making this year’s event ever bigger! This time, we’re bringing both private and public sector topics together and flying in US speakers to help you understand Microsoft’s vision for the Devices and Services era.
Find out what the next level of the datacentre will look like as we introduce the Cloud OS and Private Cloud 2012 R2 via Windows Server 2012 R2 and System Center 2012 R2. Developers will learn more about Modern Apps, Windows 8.1 Apps and application testing in the cloud. Businesses will find out how to create a mobile workforce, achieve unified communications and exploit Big Data with Power Business Intelligence (Power BI). You can also check out the latest infrastructure technologies, including Hybrid Cloud via Windows Azure Infrastructure as a Service, BYOD, CoIT and our Premier Services Support.
Come and be a part of the Devices & Services era. Admission is free on a first come, first served basis, so register now!

An innovative, people-first approach for government, businesses and citizens to shape the future of their city.
Citizens and government employees want to access more applications and data than ever before, and they want to do so while using a variety of devices. The growth of cloud computing — including big data, analytics, and the availability of new apps and devices — increases pressure for cities to be more efficient and deliver new services and initiatives.
There are more apps, more devices, and more data now than ever before, all driven by cloud computing and the use of cloud services. With these technologies playing an ever present role in businesses, how can IT drive more efficiency and deliver new forms of value?
Unified Communications (UC) plays a huge role in enabling new ways of working that drive down the costs of providing Government services. The implementation of 1GovUC, pursued under the NKEA Business services, is meant to equip Government workers with the flexibility to reach colleagues and access information virtually anywhere, anytime — and maintain mission-essential functions throughout a crisis. By unifying digital communications tools, UC makes it fast and productive for workers to be in control of their decision making
How do you reduce project development time and deliver apps to market faster? Modern apps and datacentres are changing the landscape for applications. If you want to take advantage of all the new opportunities that the "New Normal" presents you need to think about changing the way you develop applications.
Delegates are welcome to switch tracks according to their interest.
Windows apps form a key pillar for the Modern Apps ecosystem and developers must account for a myriad of devices, internet transactions and services. This session shows the different flavors of Windows application development (Desktop, Windows 8.1 Store apps) , focusing on new capabilities in Visual Studio 2013, Blend improvements, Windows 8.1 apps development with .NET/XAML, HTML5/WinJS, WinRT APIs and .NET 4.5.1 new features.
How to build a Private Cloud solution using available R2 and Azure Pack solutions.
In a changing, mobile working environment, IT plays an important role in setting the infrastructure that enables employees to do their work beyond the firewall and be able to access their projects in a secure manner. In this session, you will see and learn about the key capabilities required to enable a mobile workforce.
Explore the SharePoint development tools that are part of Visual Studio 2013. See the first class support for common app features including the app manifest, lists, client web parts, remote event receivers, and more. Come learn how to develop apps using an Office 365 Developer Site and witness remote debugging of an event receiver — all without SharePoint installed on your developer machine!
Communication has shifted over the years from offline communications such as email to faster, real-time communications and collaboration tools that allows dispersed teams to communicate and collaborate effectively. In this session, attendees will learn the benefits and impact of setting up a Unified Communications infrastructure and the ROI to expect from such investment.
Whether launching a new product, constructing a new building or developing a code of software, successful project management is the essence of achieving desired outcomes. In this session, you will learn how to proactively manage people, money and timelines using Enterprise Project Management principles and tools.
Understand the reality of development and test environments in Windows Azure. In this session, the speakers present a plan to help implement Dev/Test Environments in Windows Azure with a structured and interactive interface for viewing documentation, specific dataflow, workflow or processes.
People-Centric IT Management enables each person to work from virtually anywhere on a device of their choice and provides the organisation with a consistent way to manage and protect it all. Keep end users productive, help with data protection and compliance, unify user and device management.
LOB applications can act as single repository for all your information and transactions. Yet, much of this information may not be available to all users within an organization due to system constraints, additional costs or challenging user interface. In this session, the speakers explain how SharePoint can integrate with back-end systems and help you maximize your ROI of your existing LOB applications.
Agile Testing practices allow a team to strike a balance between agility and quality. Quality Enablement is based on the principle that every role on a team is accountable for quality throughout the lifecycle, not just the Testers. In this session we review how Visual Studio 2013 allows each role to apply agile testing practices early and often, thus ensuring quality throughout the lifecycle using both cloud and on-premise solutions.
Bring your own device (BYOD) scenarios explain how the technology behind comes together to deliver efficient solutions to IT. Learn how AD empowers you to protect resources, devices and users and understand the new capabilities in AD to support the emergent BYOD trend.
Information sharing is a basic form of collaboration. However, with information overload and having multiple copies that are spread in different hard drives, email attachments, and different backend systems, managing this size and flow of information becomes critical. Creating, controlling and protecting information are key components of an information lifecycle. In this session, you will learn how you can manage your information flow and lifecycle with SharePoint 2013 and Microsoft Office 2013.
The reality is that production incidents DO happen in internet scale and connected software. When they do, it is critical to reduce the time to resolution and to reinstate a working experience for customers. In this session we review practices and tools designed to shorten collaboration and resolution cycle times between teams and manage these production incidents more efficiently. This session also introduces a brand new product called "Release Management for Team Foundation Server".
This session looks at how to start your journey to the Cloud by implementing a Hybrid Cloud infrastructure with both Private and Public environments and with a site-to-site VPN connecting both worlds.
Microsoft's BI platform allows users to easily search, discover, and access data within and outside your organisation and, with just a few clicks, shape and transform data. Analyze and create stunning interactive visualisations that uncover hidden insights to share and collaborate from anywhere, on any device.
