TechEd North America conference gets a new name

TechEd is dead. Long live Microsoft Unified Technology Event for Enterprise.

Mark your calendars: Microsoft set the date and location for the new conference, which will take place on May 4, 2015 in Chicago, Illinois.

The conference will encompass the content of TechEd and Microsoft Management Summit and cover a broad range of technologies, including SharePoint, Office 365, Lync and Exchange. Microsoft goes into more detail about what the new conference will cover in a blog post.

At TechEd 2014 a few short months ago, the IT pros we talked to came away with a sense of disappointment over the event. The lack of System Center Configuration Manager news and sessions contributed to many former MMS members feeling left out.

In any case, Microsoft Unified Technology Event (or MUTE, as some have taken to calling it) may not help mute any critics of the event — it may make them louder.
