Microsoft Ignite 2016 is currently being held in Atlanta.

The estimated participant numbers have been a whopping 23,000 people each day so far. IT professionals, developers, partners and CEOs, among many others, have all congregated in Atlanta this week to hear Microsoft's announcements and experience the technology firsthand - not to mention the abundance of networking opportunities.

The theme for Microsoft Ignite 2016 has been based around empowering IT to drive digital transformation. We're on to day three and already there have been many major announcements, with products and services spanning security, productivity, intelligence and the cloud that will make it easier for IT professionals to promote change throughout their organisations. Microsoft also announced a new cloud partnership with Adobe. You can read more about the major announcements here.
