We know that there is a lot to do at Microsoft Ignite and tons of sessions to attend. If you are an IT Pro focused on helping SMB customers, we wanted to help draw attention to the following SMB focused sessions & community activities at Ignite:

 

CC120 - Small and Medium Sized Customer Idea Discussion

Monday, September 24, 4:30 PM - 5:15 PM, Table B 

Are you focused on Microsoft solutions for small and medium sized business? Head along to this Idea Swap and join your peers, Microsoft 365 Business team members and Microsoft MVPs to discuss changes and updates in the SMB focused lineup.

 

BRK3391: End-to-End security for SMBs with Microsoft 365 Business

Thu Sept 27, 4:00PM–5:15PM 

Microsoft 365 Business now includes sophisticated security features that protect against external threats and enable comprehensive protection of business information for SMB customers. In this session we’ll discuss these new features plus share lessons learned from the field so your business can get the most out of your Microsoft 365 Business subscription

 

BRK3368: Successfully deploy Microsoft 365 Business in your SMB

Fri Sept 28, 9:22AM–9:45AM 

SMB customers are in various phases in their journeys to the cloud. Some are fully embracing SaaS applications while others have a significant on-premises footprint. Come to this session to learn how Microsoft 365 Business can be enabled for your SMB, regardless of where you are in your journey to a secure, modern workplace.

 

THR1097: Security is important to SMBs, too

Mon Sept 24, 12:45PM-1:05PM 

71% of SMBs feel vulnerable to a cyberattack, but lack the expertise to implement sophisticated IT solutions, which many of them see as unaffordable and too complex. Microsoft 365 Business offers advanced security protection for small to medium sized businesses.

 

THR2236: Helping SMBs comply with GDPR

Tue Sept 25, 10:10AM-10:30AM 

As of May 25, 2018, a European privacy law, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), is in effect. The GDPR imposes new rules on companies, government agencies, non-profits, and other organizations that offer goods and services to people in the European Union (EU), or that collect and analyze data tied to EU residents. The GDPR applies no matter where you are located. Learn more about how Microsoft 365 Business helps small and medium-sized businesses comply with the GDPR.

 

THR2143: Microsoft 365 Business doesn’t just speak Windows

Thu Sept 27, 2:50PM-3:10PM 

Microsoft 365 Business includes the full capabilities of Microsoft Intune, which means you get MDM and MAM support for iOS and Android to address a variety of BYOD and organization owned device management, compliance, and security requirements.

 

THR2221: What is a modern desktop and why do you need it

Mon Sept 24, 1:20PM-1:40PM 

By now, you've probably heard of the modern desktop but what exactly is it, why would you want it, and how do you get it? In this theater session, we show you why shifting to a modern desktop will give your users the most productive and most secure computing experience while significantly lowering your total cost of ownership (TCO).

 

THR1090: Our great experience on delivering Microsoft Teams to SMBs

Wed Sept 26, 4:00PM-4:20PM 

Have you heard how Microsoft Teams can help your company increase the productivity level? Your employees are using multiple chat and collaboration tools and you cannot keep track? We have worked with our customers on adoption of Microsoft Teams enabling them with knowledge and expertise to organize their internal chat-based collaboration environment in one centralized place. We have received so much positive feedback, we are thrilled to share this with all of you. Join us and hear more about our great experience on delivering Teams to small and medium businesses.

 

Looking forward to connecting with and growing our SMB Tech Community at Ignite!
