Global Azure Bootcamp 2018

Several cities (270!) around the world are today running in parallel one of the most relevant community events focused on Azure, the Global Azure Bootcamp 2018. It is Saturday, but many professionals and technology enthusiasts decided to spend part of the weekend to learn and share experiences on Azure. I had the pleasure to present in Verona’s edition, opening the day with the Keynote (together with Francesco Valerio Buccoli and Marco Parenzan), and with a breakout session focused on the Azure Data Platform. I would like to thank the community CloudGen, that organized the day for the 100 people that attended. Below a couple of photos taken during the day (Diego and Marco represented Insight at our sponsor booth).Ciao!Francesco@francedit

Presentation will be complemented with demos in order to clarify the aspects of a potential adoption of this service.” AGENDA : Ciao! Francesco @francedit

my talk on cloud infrastructure for Business Intelligence projects

Last week I had the opportunity to talk in front of a group of CFOs of the north-east of Italy.

My speech was focused on the benefits of cloud computing adoption, and also a person from Microsoft Italy delivered a session on Microsoft strategy for the Business Analytics area. Let me thank BI Factory, who has organized the event, everything was great, including food! :) :) Slides of my session are available here Ciao! Francesco @francedit
