A recap of this week's news on SharePoint Pro, where we're dedicating this roundup post exclusively to all the information you need to know before heading to next week's TechEd 2014 conference in Houston.
The Microsoft TechEd 2014 conference is nearly here. The editorial team has been busy making preparations at the big event to cover the event live in Houston next week. We've highlighted a first, second, and third round of SharePoint vendors that you should keep your eye on at the Tech Expo.
In addition to great vendors, you'll want to keep tabs on the Best of TechEd awards, where we're eager to meet each SharePoint finalist in person at the show, where we'll judge the product based on strategic importance to the market, competitive advantage, and overall value to customers.
Finally, we've provided some commentary and analysis on what to expect from Microsoft at the conference. In this commentary, I provide insights on a potential direction that Microsoft might take at the conference, along with musing on whether IT pros are ready to accept the company's vision of mobile first, cloud first.
