You’d be forgiven for thinking that wider adoption of cloud services will mean that Infrastructure specialists will no longer be needed in IT. While it is true that some traditional IT functions are in decline, there are also new roles emerging and so the challenge we face is how to develop our careers and stay relevant in the IT job market.
That’s the question we're trying to answer in this session, and we plan to break the problem down into three parts—what are those Next roles; what are the Next Skills we need; and what you need to do Next to stay current as the IT job market evolves. We do this by working with some of the pioneers in these new areas, specifically some of the Microsoft Valued Professionals who are already here at TechEd, as they have already started on this journey. Please join us for this interactive discussion which we hope will help you to be part of what’s next.
Organizations are realizing that traditional network-based security measures are woefully inadequate to protect corporate data in a world where the workforce likes to work from different locations, on a variety of different devices and targeting a plethora of different applications in cloud. Enterprises are looking to bolster traditional security controls with more adaptive, contextual mechanisms driven by increased analytics. Azure AD has a variety of features that can help IT secure their enterprises using data driven intelligence. In this session we cover how Azure AD can help detect and alert on compromised accounts and malicious access. We also cover Cloud App Discovery in depth and talk about how organizations can get a better handle on ‘ShadowIT’ as employees increasingly adopt cloud applications without IT involvement. Cloud App Discovery can help organizations detect cloud application usage and bring that under IT control.
This session starts with a brief overview of the threat landscape, highlighting the standard possible vectors of attack that IT organizations leveraged by attackers. With that grounding, it drills down into the three IT security areas that organizations can leverage to manage cybersecurity risk: protecting, detecting, and responding to cyber incidents whether they take place in a private data center on the public cloud.
Leveraging the public cloud in conjunction with on-premises is key for the enterprise IT. Come and learn how to build hybrid scenarios with Azure in this session. We cover typical hybrid scenarios with Azure and have a discussion around technical considerations.
Topic: Active Directory, Hybrid Identity, Microsoft Azure Active Directory
Azure Active Directory is the cloud identity and access management solution of Microsoft. It consist of various hybrid identity management capabilities for enterprise users, task workers, B2B and B2C scenarios. Single Sign On to thousands SaaS applications, self-service password reset, group management delegation, device registration/conditional access, multi-factor authentication, cloud application discovery, application proxy, advanced sync engines with on-premises directories, advanced security reports, and more.
Public cloud platforms such as Microsoft Azure are the future of datacenters. Microsoft is a major player in this area, but there are plenty of competitors. In this session, David Chappell provides an independent perspective on this market. Don’t expect detailed feature comparisons, but do expect to leave with a big-picture view of how Azure compares with cloud platforms from Amazon, Google, Salesforce.com, and others
Microsoft Azure now provides the right services for enterprises. But what scenarios are most interesting to enterprise leaders, and why? Which of these do most enterprises want to start with, why do they want them, and what are the common objections? In this session, David Chappell walks through these basics, giving you a big-picture introduction to how enterprises are adopting Azure and how you can learn from what others are doing.
Controlling who can access Azure resources and controlling what users can do within and across multiple Azure subscriptions has been a challenge. The solution is Azure Role-Based Access Control (RBAC). Come to this session to learn about what it is, what it can do, and how it can help you, as you need more sophisticated ways to control access to Azure.
We are excited to share the new, Microsoft Azure Portal Preview – reimagined, redesigned, and remade for you. Join us for this journey into the future of Ops in a DevOps world, integrating Microsoft Visual Studio Online and Azure into a single, seamless experience that allows you to get real work done, fast. We look at how to connect your source code to Azure for continuous deployment, managing builds, tests and work items, as well as managing your Azure apps built using Azure Web Sites or VMs, using Storage or SQL, etc., and monitoring the health of your deployed application with rich insights, all inside the new Azure Portal Preview. Join us to hear about the future of this new platform.
It’s your data—regardless of whether it’s stored on premises or in Azure. Learn more about how Azure helps enforce data privacy and integrity throughout the information lifecycle. This session details the mechanisms for encryption, secrets administration, and access control that you can leverage for managing sensitive data in Azure. Benefit from detailed guidance on how to use features in the Azure platform to protect critical enterprise data in the cloud, whether structured or unstructured, in-transit, or at-rest.
