Microsoft Ignite 2017


Microsoft Ignite: The Return!

After being a Gold Sponsor at Microsoft Ignite last year, one of our immediate takeaways was "Yeah, that was great, let's do it again next year". And so...we are!

To say we made a splash would be to put it mildly. What we actually did was build a huge, bright orange booth, give away a truck load of Star Wars Lego and get recognised as one of the breakout stars of the show. 

All those who visited us in 2016, will be delighted to learn that we plan to go just as big and bright this year, but with a brand new message and product capabilities. The story of Ignite 2017 is going to be "Map Every App!"


Map Every App

We know enterprises worldwide are struggling with IT complexity, struggling to get an exact handle on their sprawling application estate, struggling to get comprehensive visibility of application availability, uptime and topology.  

That's why at Ignite 2017 we'll be showing you how SquaredUp allows you to 'Map Every App', giving you the ability to automatically discover and comprehensively map every single application in your environment, on demand, all powered by your existing SCOM investment. There’s no need to install any new databases, agents or infrastructure, no need to connect to any cloud services, a simple 10-minute installation is all it takes for your SCOM environment to be transformed with super-fast HTML5 dashboards, awesome performance reporting features and our application discovery tool, Visual Application Discovery & Analysis (VADA). The best can have all of that for $10,000.

Yes, you read that right. All of your applications, no matter how many or how large, for $10,000 and without any new weighty infrastructure or data collection. Sounds too good to be true right?

Well, that's why we built a massive orange stand; so you can easily track us down and come and see it for yourself, live.  

Needless to say, for those of you already familiar with SquaredUp, we'll have some brand new functionality in store that we'll be unveiling for the first time at Ignite 2017 that we think is going to absolutely knock your socks off!

So, remember..."Map Every App". By the end of Ignite 2017 we're going to have shown you and your colleagues how you can achieve this with ease.


What else to expect...?

As usual, there'll be lots to see and do at our stand, with a focus on live demos and awesome Lego Star Wars prizes, something that's always proved a winning combination!

You'll also be able to see a wide range of integrations, including;

You'll also have the chance to meet our senior management team and find out more about our exciting roadmap post-Ignite.
