Chief Executive Office of Microsoft Satya Nadella and Chief Operating Officer Kevin Turner have been announced as Vision Keynote Speakers at the Worldwide Partner Conference 2015, to be held in Orlando, Florida.
WPC is Microsoft’s main partner event of the year, providing a place for partners to connect with one another and with Microsoft. The event establishes Redmond’s vision for the future, and with attendance regularly topping 16,000, with representatives from over 160 countries, it is certainly a major milestone in the firm’s annual calendar.
During Nadella’s keynote, he is slated to lay out his vision for Microsoft’s future, and also various opportunities for partners with work with Microsoft and one another. This will be a key opportunity to learn how things will continue to differ under the new leadership offered by the nascent CEO, including a continued focused on building Azure cloud services and the availability of Microsoft products across all platforms.
Dealing more with financial concerns, Turner’s speech will deal with details of how partnerships with Redmond can help to drive and boost revenues, and also where new business opportunities will lie with the firm’s upcoming tech products. Given that 2015 is shaping up to be perhaps Microsoft’s biggest year ever, this will no doubt be of especial significance.
