Microsoft, VMware AirWatch and JAMF Software highlight a busy autumn tech show season.
Sept. 26-30, Atlanta
This one’s a doozy, clocking in at five days and nearly 500 sessions. It attracts Microsoft IT pros and developers alike, who can find sessions and hands-on labs about end-user software and management products, from Intune to SharePoint to Windows and more. Attendees will surely be interested in learning how to take advantage of Windows 10 on mobile devices.
Oct. 2-6, Atlanta
Attendees will be on the lookout for updates to VMware’s AirWatch enterprise mobility management platform. They’ll also be able to attend sessions tailored to specific industries, including education, government and retail. Scheduled speakers include familiar VMware faces, such as end-user computing general manager Sanjay Poonen, and some different choices—for example, the host of National Geographic Channel’s series Brain Games.
Oct. 18-20, Minneapolis
Apple management software provider JAMF has doubled the number of sessions at its user conference this year. Traditionally known for customer-hosted sessions, the event now includes more product previews, deep dives and other offerings focused on JAMF and Apple services, such as the Volume Purchase Program. Unfortunately, the conference that’s been free for six years also now comes with a price tag.
