FAQ - Workplace Ninja Summit

Summit

The mission of the Workplace Ninja Summit is to be the major European technology conference focused on Microsoft Workplace Management with the current technologies such as System Center Configuration Manager, Intune, Client Security with ATP family and also VDI driven technologies. The Workplace Ninja Summit will focus primarily on Microsoft Workplace Management solutions, with a certain amount of the sessions dedicated to Citrix, as well as to other vendors and hybrid solutions. 

Europe needs a dedicated premium Workplace Management conference. There are many Azure and Office 365 related conferences in Europe but the topics for Workplace Management are often included as a single track or only a part of another track, but they never seem to be the primary focus. There is no major premium event in Europe dedicated exclusively to Workplace Management in any manner. The Workplace Ninja Summit is here to fill this gap and provide exclusive focus on Microsoft and other cloud computing topics.

It is indeed both. We will have world-class experts and speakers, both from Microsoft Corporate and from the community (Microsoft MVPs), focusing not only on the newest features of Microsoft technologies and general cloud topics, but also on the business and legal aspects of working with device management technologies. Our content is focused on engineers and architects with level 300-500 sessions
