Episode 202 - Kaizala

February 19th, 2019 · Comments

The Microsoft Ignite tour has been to town so Brenton and I share our thoughts on attending the event. We wrap up what we believed to be the best sessions and overall take aways from the premier Microsoft IT Professional conference in Australia for 2019. We also cover off a few of the important updates from the Microsoft Cloud to make sure that you don’t miss anything in the meantime. I also share my thoughts on using the Kaizala app during the conference with the CIAOPS Patron community which is great lead in for our interview this episode – Parveen Maloo who is the Senior Product Marketing Manager for Kaizala. Sit back and enjoy something about a product you probably never knew Microsoft had.
