3 Big A-ha Moments from 30+ Ecosystem Partner Meetings at Microsoft Ignite ‘18
Last week was Microsoft’s BIG conference at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL. I thought the venue was incredible — the amount of foot traffic in the expo never ceased to amaze me. The event kicked-off with an inspirational keynote from Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft, who announced Microsoft + Adobe + SAP’s Open Data Initiative (see press release here). The alliance partnership’s big vision is to carve out a net new category for AI-powered services for customers around “Customer Experience Management.” Satya invited Shantanu Narayen (CEO of Adobe) and Bill McDermott (CEO of SAP) on stage to make the announcement together. I was really impressed by the C-level handshake and the vision that these three industry icons articulated for this joint announcement.
