This has been my 4th Ignite and I have to say, this year has been the best, not because of the announcements - there are always announcements - but because it has been building on what has been achieved over the last five years.
One of my biggest complaints in previous years has been the expected date that the features will roll-out to General Availability as showing me cool things I won’t be able to do for 6 months to a year is not useful for me. I want to take these new features into account now for projects I am will be delivering in three month’s time.
It feels like there have been many, many years of slowly consolidating the divers products of Microsoft and they have converged on a few core platforms and services which are now integral to the usability, extendibility and integration of pretty much all of the services that are used to deliver modern workplace and work management solutions.
I have written up notes from the sessions that I attended each day and they can be found at
I will be writing more blogs on the key subject areas that I have found really interesting and I will be sharing my findings at the following events:
- SharePoint Saturday Leicester (16 Nov 2019)
- SharePoint Saturday Oslo (7 Dec 2019)
- Scottish Summit (29 Feb 2020)
