I’m very excited having the opportunity to meet the product teams on Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS) during a 4-day stay in Redmond (WA) next week! As my employer Inovativ is participating in the Red Carpet Program we’re invited to join the Enterprise Mobility airlift. An airlift is an event which outlines new features being released in a new wave/product release. This airlift includes deep dive sessions on Azure AD Premium, Microsoft Intune and Azure RMS. As Microsoft Partner we’ll be lined up with the latest technology and have the chance to discuss and provide feedback on the components involved with the Enterprise Mobility Suite.

Further I’m looking foward to meet some community friends in person like Mr. ‘IoT’ and ‘Enterprise Mobility’ Rob Tiffany. I let me assure that the coffee is ready at Satya’s office ;-)

So I challenge you to collect your best feedback and questions on Azure AD Premium, Microsoft Intune, Azure Rights Management and bring it on, I’ll forward them to the PG’s! You can drop me a line by Twitter, Facebook or by e-mail
