We have arrived at the point when some people are already traveling towards Atlanta for next week's Microsoft Ignite conference or are in the final stages preparing for their trip.
On Monday, to kick off the conference, Microsoft will have two keynotes. One will be at 9 AM Eastern Time and will be hosted by Scott Guthrie, Microsoft's Executive Vice President for Microsoft's Cloud and Enterprise Group. According to the description he will be joined by others to talk about digital transformation.
"Technology continues to rapidly evolve, offering us new ways of working and powering digital transformation for all organizations. Key to our ability to harness technology is our ability to evolve with it, to harness new capabilities and learn new skills. Join Scott Guthrie, Executive Vice President, Microsoft; on Monday morning to start Microsoft Ignite. Scott will focus on how technology enables digital transformation and, along with guests, demonstrate new technologies. He will also discuss how IT is transforming and detail investments and programs to help enable this."
Then, on Monday afternoon at 4 PM Eastern Time, the Innovation Keynote will take place with Satya Nadella as the primary speaker.
"Satya Nadella will close the first day of Microsoft Ignite with a must-see presentation, focused on next generation innovations and investments that are fundamental to shaping IT in the foreseeable future. He will discuss emerging trends and how you can prepare to take advantage of them in your organization today."
Both of these keynotes can be viewed in a few different ways depending on if you are onsite or remote.

Next is the subject of bringing back the value of attending Microsoft Ignite to your company and co-workers.
Since a lot of money has likely been invested for your attendance it is critical that you bring that value back.
Check out this second video today from Patch and Switch about doing just that:
