Identity-related sessions at Microsoft Ignite 2020

Microsoft’s Ignite 2020 event kicks off in one week.

For 2020, Ignite is organized differently to align with the new reality. Microsoft has announced that they will organize virtual events only until July 2021. Instead of an in-person event in New Orleans, LA, a virtual Ignite event is organized from September 22nd to September 24th, 2020.

The big advantage for you, is that you can attend Ignite this year for free.

As Identity geeks, we encourage you to attend the following Identity-related sessions at Microsoft Ignite 2020:
