Microsoft Show

Last week, got an opportunity to participate Bangalore event and here I'm sharing the conference info.

Key Note
Event was ignited with the Key note address on the strategy and messaging about the platforms and productivity services for a mobile-first, cloud-first world.

Abstract of key note address is around Business transformation, with 3 core essences of
  1. Efficiency
  2. Agile
  3. Differentiation.
Efficiency produced better result, Agile with faster/cheaper, Differentiation with Innovative factor.

With these essences, Microsoft product walk thro was exhibited in the areas of DevOps, Analytic, Cortana, IoT, Cloud Infra, Mobile first.

Cortana Analytics is a fully managed big data management and advanced analytics suite that enables the customer to transform the data into intelligent action. To the customer, this solution enhances the business applications with machine intelligence to evolve from simple descriptive analytics to prescriptive analytical recommendations.

Windows 10
To me, Windows 10 is not only Universal Application platform but also other features like:
  • Enterprise Data Protection - differentiation between private and work data
  • Wipe and Reload - process drags old files, settings, and programs from your previous Windows system to new one
  • Bio-metric - security in a native format that will essentially eliminate the need for passwords
  • Continuum - user interface can adapt automatically depending on the situation/device
  • Edge/ IE 11 - both modern web browser 'edge' and traditional 'IE' work better together
To me, Delve (code named "Oslo") is the next generation connect platform (SharePoint) with the interesting factor of personal analytical reports.

Delve displays information based on "the work they are doing and the people with whom they are engaging," in a card-like user interface. With Delve, the idea is users won't have to remember where their information is stored or who shared it. That information will be surfaced for users automatically, but only when the appropriate permissions are granted.

Delve uses Microsoft's internally built Office Graph to ascertain relationship between people, content and activity across Office 365. Microsoft officials have said Delve is just the first app that will make use of Office Graph information.

SQL 2016
SQL 2016 comes packed with more in-depth, encrypted security, in-memory improvements, a mobile-friendly BI and Analytics dashboard, a stretch database for hyper-scale in the cloud, built-in advanced analytics and more.

To me, Top-3 attracted features are:
  1. Poly Base
  2. Workload Insight
  3. Built-in Security
Open Source Strategy
As a developer, I'm so excited on Microsoft's Open Source Strategy implementation.

.NET Core (named Core) was created so that .NET could be open source, cross platform and be used in more resource-constrained environments. .NET Core and the .NET Framework have (for the most part) a subset-superset relationship.

.NET Core platform is part of the .NET Foundation, open sourced by Microsoft Open Technologies Inc.
  1. .NET Core Project
  2. .NET Compiler Platform ("Roslyn" Project)
  3. ASP.NET Project
ASP.NET 5 is a new cross-platform version of ASP.NET that is designed for the cloud, and runs on Windows, Linux and Mac.

To me, the learning is adaptability.  If you/your company can't adapt to the industry change, then we'll be thrown out eventually.
