How popular is Azure? IDC says Azure has about half the customer volume as Amazon Web Services, but growing faster. Azure was the most requested topic at IC3 2014 in San Francisco. Our theory is that Microsoft owns the enterprise and since IC3 is an enterprise training conference, its a natural fit. So we think Azure adoption will continue to be rapid among those running Office, Exchange, SharePoint, SQL Server, et al.
That’s why we’re thrilled to welcome the Azure A-Team for the Introduction to Azure Track on Nov 10. Jennelle Crothers, Microsoft IT Pro Evangelist joins her colleagues Bruno Terkaly, Rafael Godinho and Andrew Moll to help existing Microsoft customers and newbies migrate to Azure. She knows what she’s talking about. Prior to joining Microsoft to help enterprises migrate to the cloud, Jennelle spent 10 years as a Senior Network Administrator for the California Insurance Commissioner. She’s particularly adept at Windows Server, Active Directory and Exchange installation and management.
Bring your difficult questions. She’s not only an accomplished IT evangelist, she’s also a puppy trainer for Guide Dogs for the Blind, the largest guide dog service in the United States. There’s a metaphor in there somewhere about leading the blind. Welcome Jennelle.
