Microsoft announces Future Unleashed, an event for businesses and developers in India

Microsoft will host a unique event in Mumbai, India on November 5-6. The first ever edition of Future Unleashed promises to be a uniquely curated, future-centric technology conference and will see keynotes from Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and Scott Guthrie, Executive Vice President, Microsoft.

The event will see participation from an eclectic group from across industries and all walks of life to envision how technology will empower the lives of a billion plus Indians and will allow one to keep up with the dramatic pace of technological change in India.

The Business Day

The first day of the event is for CXOs of large enterprises or mid-market organizations who are looking at new innovations in the digital world.

The day will see keynotes from global visionaries like Satya Nadella, Anand Mahindra, Managing Director, Mahindra & Mahindra, Nisa Godrej, Executive Director, Godrej Consumer Products, and philanthropist and cardiac surgeon, Dr. Devi Shetty amongst others.

The event will feature a tailored selection of roundtables and briefings to explore key trends, identify opportunities, address common challenges, and spark new ideas. There will also be an immersive zone to let you experience the future solutions to enable the enterprises of tomorrow.

The Technical Day

The second day of the event is geared towards developers, architects, and IT Implementers or decision makers, and fittingly Scott Guthrie will keynote the day.

The event will feature the best of technical content delivered by the leading experts in Cloud, Mobility, Data & Analytics, IOT, Modern Web, and more. You'd be able to connect with Microsoft partners at the Expo, engage with experts, and view compelling demos.

The messaging around the 'first edition' implies a consistent event property and not a one-off conference. However, it is a departure from Microsoft TechEd, the annual developer and IT pro event that Microsoft holds in many countries, including India. Mind you, it's not a consumer-focused event, so don't hope for any product launches or availability announcements. I'll be there at the event and will bring you all the updates from the ground.
