Head of Marketing | Business & Technology Advisor

Microsoft Ignite is full of incredible announcements around improvements to what Microsoft is planning to offer in the not-so-distant future. While Ignite the Tour was missed by many worldwide for another year, we did have two incredible Microsoft Ignites, packed with new and exciting innovations.

Ignite the Hybrid Workplace

With much of the business world learning the advantages and how to optimize hybrid workplaces, it was evident that Microsoft would develop so much to provide answers and solutions to a lot of the world’s questions and needs.

The desire and need for change don’t only come from C-Level executives in need of adapting their business models. 58% percent of employees want to go back to the office to do more focused work and, the same percentage of individuals wish to continue to work from home for the same reason.

Ignite announcements make it a no brainer to upgrade and/or migrate

Our CTO and Microsoft MVP, Richard Harbridge, put together a few videos to highlight some of the more innovative and economic Ignite highlights that might allow your company to see the power of an up-to-date Microsoft 365 suite. These will make the shift to a hybrid workplace not only easier but more economical.

This blog will look at the highlights in two categories: financial & innovative wins.
