IT Connections Looks a LOT like MMS – on Purpose

From a System Center topic perspective, IT Connections is chocked full.  As many of you may know, I am the conference chair for IT Connections, so many of speakers and sessions have been hand-picked because I understand where needs exist.  As a long time participant and founder of the Microsoft Management Summit, I understand what makes a conference good. All of the things we have all come to love about MMS is now part of IT Connections. Content and learning makes a conference popular, but community makes it successful for the long term. For that reason, we are embedding the MMS experience directly into IT Connnections.

For those that are kind of new to what we’ve put together for IT Connections this year, I wanted to give you a first-hand look at the speakers and sessions. You’ll be familiar with a lot of the speakers and the content will be spot-on, covering exactly what you are working with day-to-day in your System Center environments.

IT/Dev Connections is from September 30 – October 4, at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. For old-time MMS folks, that’s like a second home. It is for me.  Registration is still open and I hope to see you there!

This will actually be my first Connections event ever, even though I sit as the conference chair. But, I can tell you that it won’t be my last.  And, for many of you who love the MMS experience – trust me – you need to attend this one, or at least plan to attend next year. <-there’s a thinly veiled message there somewhere…
