Spotlight on Windows at Microsoft Ignite and the Technical Takeoff

Windows is building what matters most for your business. This was the theme as Chief Product Officer Panos Panay took the stage in Seattle for a live keynote to kick off day two of Microsoft Ignite 2022. Together, he and engineering leaders from Windows, Intune, Windows 365, Defender, Teams, Loop and Surface discussed (and demonstrated) some of the latest features in Windows to support secure hybrid work from client to cloud.

Here are a few highlights from this year’s conference plus details on where you can take a closer look at the capabilities that will help you easily deploy, update and manage—and deliver the most secure, personal and productive experience for devices, virtual desktops and Cloud PCs.
