SuiteWorld is always fun. Unlike Salesforce‘s DreamForce conference, SuiteWorld is still small enough that I get to spend some time with high level executives. Over the previous events I’ve had extended conversations with NetSuite CEO Zach Nelson to get the story, from the horse’s mouth as it were, of where the company is going. While other vendors seem to be focused on attendee numbers as their only measure of success, NetSuite, in keeping with its specialist area, seems to have a more “curated” view of its event. (Disclosure: NetSuite covers my travel and expenses to attend the event.)
Microsoft executives will take the stage at Moscone West in San Francisco on Wednesday for the first of two keynote addresses to the company’s big Build developer conference. Here are five key things to expect from the next two days of Microsoft announcements:
1. New features in Windows 10 for developers and end users alike
Last year, Microsoft used Build to show off its vision for developing applications to run on what was then an unreleased operating system. In the intervening year, the company released Windows 10 to the world, and people have started using it in droves.
The smart home, smart grid, IoT platforms, and industrial IoT applications are key sectors that will lead in innovation.
