What you need to know

  • Microsoft Ignite will continue in March of 2021.
  • Microsoft split Ignite into two halves, with the first half just concluding.
  • The second half of Microsoft Ignite will also be a digital event.

Microsoft Ignite's first half just wrapped up, concluding days of announcements and discussions from Microsoft and its partners. The second half of Microsoft Ignite will happen as a digital event in March 2021. We already knew that Ignite would be split into two halves, but we now know the month of the second half of the event.

Microsoft Ignite's Twitter account invited people to check out the second half of Ignite in March. Previously, we only knew that the event would occur early in 2021.

Microsoft announced several new features for Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Search, and more during the first half of Ignite. We'll have to wait to see what's in store during the second half.

While the second half of Ignite will occur in March, it will not affect or replace Build, which usually occurs in May. When Microsoft announced that Ignite would be split into two halves, it clarified its events, stating, "We'll continue to host Microsoft Build as the forum for our developer communities to come together."

Microsoft events will all be digital until at least July 2021.
