Microsoft Ignite 2020 | Microsoft 365 Takeaways

That’s a Wrap! But wait… the after party might be more fun!  

Microsoft Ignite 2020 the virtual version is over, but the learning doesn’t have to stop there. Prior to the conference, we highlighted sessions for Microsoft 365 Power UsersAdministrators/IT Pros, and Developers. Nearly all these sessions were recorded and are available to watch at your leisure.  

We know what you’re thinking, there’s a lot to unpack here! So we curated a list of must-see sessions and resources from this year’s event to help you quickly get up to speed.  

We shared our Ignite key takeaways from the opening sessions where employee wellbeing and mindfulness along with how to best manage remote or hybrid work environments took center stage. 

As for general Microsoft-365-specific announcements, there are a lot of new features coming soon for Microsoft Teams, many of which are focused on improving collaboration especially in the age of remote work. 

SharePoint Updates, including the Home Site App for Teams, the SharePoint App Bar, and updates to the SharePoint Mega Menu, are sure to help our clients take their digital workspaces to the next level.  

We’re also extremely excited to see SharePoint Syntex in action; it will be the first Project Cortex product released. We’re pleased to announce that we are Associate Partners of the Microsoft 365 Content Services Partnership Program this year, where we will glean insight into Project Cortex and specifically SharePoint Syntex.

Anyone who has 'attended' a physical meeting by 'conferencing in' in knows the frustrations & limitations that come from not being in the room. You're the voice in the ceiling & not equally represented in the conversation.

This is no longer acceptable.

Today, we find ourselves facing the “hybrid work paradox.”

Employees are keen to retain flexibility. At the same time, human-to-human collaboration remains important.

To marry the best of both, hone your strategy, spaces, & tech to suit employee needs.

It's the day of the show, y'all!

Join the #PixelMillWebinars this morning at 11am PST for a live panel discussion about what the #digitalworkspace looks like for a #hybrid team, & how #Microsoft365 can empower your users no matter where they're working.


Join the #PixelMillWebinars this Thursday as we welcome key players from @OrchestrySoft, @KieferConsult, and @AP_Mortgage to discuss the hybrid work paradox and how #Microsoft365 can empower your users no matter where they're working.

We've all been itching to get "back to normal," but what does that mean? Are we missing out on valuable lessons learned by trying to return to something that perhaps wasn't working before?

Join us next week for a live panel discussion on the new normal.
