The full lineup will join the keynotes that were announced in May. Microsoft MVP Tony Redmond, aka the Exchange Godfather, will kick off the conference with his keynote “The Future of Microsoft Cloud Services.” In this keynote session, Tony Redmond will look at the economics, software engineering, ecosystem, and landscape of Microsoft 365 and discuss the reliability and security of Office 365.

Day two of the conference will be opened by Microsoft Directory Services MVP and identity guru John Craddock. John’s session will look at “The Future of Identity: DIDs and VCs.” This keynote will be an introduction to the future of identity with Decentralized Identifiers (DIDs) and Verifiable Credentials (VCs). What if users owned their identity without dependence on identity providers and only needed to prove who they are once, using that proof as often as necessary?
