Microsoft has now confirmed that the name of their new enterprise conference will be Microsoft Ignite, while also confirming the final dates for its BUILD 2015 developer conference will be April 29 to May 1.
Microsoft had previously announced plans to consolidate all of its previous TechEd, SharePoint, Project, Lync and Exchange events into one conference that would be held in Chicago on May 4-8. Today, that conference has a name and Microsoft is also accepting registrations for Ignite. In a blog post, Microsoft's corporate communications head Frank X Shaw stated:
"Ignite is where you'll come up with your next great idea, based on what you learn about the upcoming wave of products and services. We're going to cover it all, across cloud infrastructure and management, big data and analytics, productivity, unified communications, operating systems, mobile devices and more. You'll get the practical guidance and the insight you need to build a game plan for that big project. You'll learn from people who have reached the pinnacle of success, overcome the impossible and learned the hard lessons. You'll dive deep with our experts, share stories with other professionals, and have some laughs, too."
Microsoft also announced the specific dates for the BUILD 2015 developer conference in San Francisco. Previously, Microsoft confirmed that the conference would be held sometime in April but did not offer an exact date at that time. Registration for that event is not yet open.
