Microsoft reportedly has a lot of ideas for the name of its revamped IT conference, which will be held in Chicago from May 4-8, and is reportedly sending a list of those ideas to a select number of customers and partners to get their input.
ZDNet, via unnamed sources, got a hold of the short list of names that could be used for the conference, which will merge the content from Microsoft's TechEd, Microsoft Management Summit, SharePoint, Project, Lync and Exchange events. Here is the list:
- Microsoft Current
- Microsoft Co:
- Microsoft Forsee
- Microsoft 4C
- Microsoft GO
- Microsoft Tomorrow
- Microsoft Spark
- Microsoft Unity
This event might also take over from Microsoft's TechEd Europe conference in 2015, but the company has yet to confirm if that will indeed happen. Microsoft previously indicated that more information on the new IT event will be revealed in September. Microsoft still plans to hold its Worldwide Partner Conference in Orlando, Florida in July 2015 and the company will also hold a BUILD conference for developers next year, but a specific data and location have yet to be revealed.
