Recapping Microsoft Ignite | The Tour - Toronto

With over 4,000 attendees, Microsoft Ignite | The Tour - Toronto (1/10-1/11) was a bustling two-day event filled with great networking, informative presentations and lots of Microsoft customer and partner love!

From our many conversations at Ignite Toronto—both at the BlueJeans booth and from just strolling around the conference floor—it’s clear that 2019 is gearing up to be a big year for Microsoft Teams, and BlueJeans is excited to be along for the ride.

While at the event, we had the pleasure of speaking with a mix of consultants, end-users, and decision makers about their biggest Microsoft and industry needs for 2019.

So what are people saying at the event?

As many companies begin the process of moving over to Microsoft Teams this year, they’re looking for a quick, seamless way to increase meeting productivity and collaboration that will help accelerate Teams’ adoption.

Our cloud-native video interoperability solution, BlueJeans Gateway for Microsoft Teams, is enabling customers to do just that. The Gateway provides a consistent experience for Teams’ users regardless of their location, safeguards meeting connectivity and maximizes existing conference room system investments. When all is said and done, the result is accelerated Microsoft Teams adoption.

Our fearless Product Line Manager, Tedd Fox, center, discusses the new BlueJeans Gateway cloud video interop solution in the “What’s New with Teams” breakout theater session.

Overall, it was a great event with a great group of people, and we couldn’t be more excited for what’s ahead with BlueJeans and the Microsoft Community.
