Greg’s Top 5

Based on my previous experiences at MMS MOA, here are my top five reasons for attending MMS 2018 Desert Edition:

  1. Community – MMS has consistently hit the mark for fostering community. The speakers are available and visible, and eager to talk to you. Evals clearly show how much attendees enjoy attending MMS.
  2. SpeakersTop notch speakers – industry best come together to collaborate and present on the topics they love.
  3. Healthy balance of Microsoft and Industry Involvement – As IT Pros, we need the “boots on the ground/industry” perspective more than ever. But there’s also the right representation from Microsoft to give great feedback, get your questions answered, and influence change in the products.
  4. Sessions – Deep, technical sessions, topics you won’t find in a book, webcast, or other publication. Plenty of time (1h 45 min) to absorb the presentation, ask a lot of questions, and hang out after to network.
  5. Timing – Stay current, stay relevant! Our world is quickly changing. Just think of all the changes in ConfigMgr and Intune since MMS 2018 in May, and you know that there’s plenty to catch-up.

Bonus Reason! Cabana sessions are a new addition to MMS, and is something we envisioned at the beginning. In addition to all the community and network time that you get at MMS, the cabana sessions allow you to schedule 1×1 time with industry peers as well as MS product team members.

I’ll see you at MMS DE!
