Attended some of the Microsoft IDA Partner Summit today, and am excited about the level of change coming from Microsoft. NT4 to Windows 2000 brought us huge leaps forward, and demanded us IT Pros ramp up on more technologies and protocols. Server 2008 to Azure looks like this decade’s huge leap forward. In fact I think it was mentioned in jest that they are interested in talked to anybody interested in port 389 on Azure Active Directory.
Many problems are solved in the next releases from Microsoft, but there are always new problems created and fun gaps to fill with integration glue.
I expect most of what was presented today is also available from recorded TechEd presentations. Unfortunately I don’t that link handy but Bing should make quick work of it!
