Your very own source into the exciting world of the Microsoft, Communication Square is here.
It’s that exciting time of the year again when Microsoft partners from across the globe come together to share their experiences. This year there are three conferences Microsoft Inspire 2018, Microsoft Ignite 2018 and Microsoft Build 2018.
So here is what’s happening Microsoft Conferences 2018.
Microsoft Build 2018
To my developer fellows, let me first give you an insight about the latest Microsoft Build 2018 that just took place in May. It has been a busy month in the tech world as Google and Microsoft both hosted their biggest conferences of the year in the same week of May. The focus of this year's Build conference shifts from Windows to Microsoft's work on artificial intelligence (AI) systems, machine learning, edge-computing tools and the company's moves to integrate with other platforms including iOS, Android and Amazon Alexa. Here’s a quick recap of everything Microsoft announced at Build 2018.
Cortana and Alexa
The good news is that in the near future, you’ll be able to speak with Cortana through an Amazon Echo or reach Alexa through your Windows 10 PC. The integration will first be made available in limited beta, and no timeframe has been given for a wider rollout.
Microsoft previewed a new app called Your Phone that can sync Android phones and iPhones with Windows 10. The feature goes into beta this week and is expected to launch publicly this fall.
Timeline for IOS and Android
Windows 10’s Timeline keeps track of all the apps you’re using and what you’re doing in them. You can open up the timeline to view your history and jump right back to where you were. What’s powerful about the Timeline is that it can sync across Windows 10 devices. And now, Microsoft is bringing the Timeline to iOS and Android, too. So if you use the same apps on your phone and desktop, you’ll be able to pick something up on mobile that you started on a desktop.
Incentive for Developers
it’s been standard practice for all the big app stores to take a 30 percent cut of the money an app brings in. Microsoft is about to make a big change: in some circumstances, it’ll only take a 5 percent cut, leaving developers with 95 percent of the money they bring in.
Kinect is Alive
Microsoft is keeping Kinect alive, just in a much different form than we know it today, Microsoft is turning Kinect into a cloud service. It sounds like developers will be able to send information from their own cameras and depth sensors up to Kinect in the cloud, have Microsoft process that information, and then send it back to the device.
Azure leaps into Artificial Intelligence
Microsoft has opened up the Azure Internet of Things (IoT) run-time to developers. Microsoft has also updated its Bot Framework, which, in combination with new Cognitive Services updates – will level up conversational bots so they can deliver deeper and more realistic conversations.
Microsoft Inspire/Ready 2018
Everybody’s favorite Microsoft Inspire is here again.
Technology and communication are making the world smaller and more connected than ever. There are exciting things happening. At the same time, there are unique challenges we are facing as we try to stay adaptable and responsive to complex topics and new situations. Microsoft inspire 2018 is here to tackle these challenges. Microsoft inspire has always been the lifeblood flowing through the veins of the Microsoft partners. It will be arriving in Las Vegas, Nevada, this July from 15th to 19th. It’s the biggest event in the calendar for Microsoft Partners, with tens of thousands of vendors and service providers in attendance.

Are you Ready to be Inspired?
Microsoft’s greatest asset is its people; partners and employees. Bring them together and you’ll be inspired. This year's Inspire has cohabited with Microsoft Ready, the annual Microsoft sales, marketing, and technical fiscal kick-off. This is the first time that Microsoft has combined both events, and with Microsoft Ready bringing over 21,000 regional and global Microsoft staff to Las Vegas, we see an unprecedented opportunity for partners to connect, network and work with the Microsoft community than ever before.
