The Experts Conference 2009 web site TEC 2009 (Las Vegas March 22-25) agenda is almost complete now and it seems to be biggest show since PDC (Professional Developers Conference) last year on which Microsoft and their key partners will talk about Azure, Exchange Online and other “cloud” platforms.

Also, while PDC was mainly dev-oriented – this is going to be first one oriented on IT professionals, system integrators and architects.

Here are the sessions which caught my attention:

Directory track:

This Cloud Has Roots: A Peek Into Microsoft’s Global Foundation Services AD Infrastructure by Sean Deuby (Microsoft MVP, Windows IT Pro Magazine contributor, and Enterprise Solutions Strategist with Advaiya).

Federating with the Cloud by Randy Wiemer (Architect at Oxford Computer Group – the main system integrator for Microsoft’s identity management solutions.)

GALSync and Federation in Exchange Online by Craig Martin (Director of Identity Architecture at Oxford Computer Group.)

Implementing an Identity based solution using Microsoft’s new Cloud based infrastructure by Danny Kim (CTO at FullArmor, Microsoft MVP) – Danny is telling me this will be basically a session on identity in Windows Azure based on their experience moving PolicyPortal to Azure.

Identity Integration: Multiple Directories in Cloud by Patrick Harding (CTO at Ping Identity – these guys know about identity federation in the internet probably more than anyone else!)

Exchange track:

Modern Techniques for Large Scale Exchange Environments Keynote by Konstantin Ryvkin (Konstantin is a Sr. Technology Architect in the Microsoft Business Collaboration Services Group a team which provides Exchange based hosted messaging services to Microsoft IT and other enterprise customers – really looking forward to this one!)

Exchange 2007 and its Web Services byIlse Van Criekinge (Global Knowledge)

Software + Services Integration with Microsoft Live by Richard Wakeman (Senior Consultant with Microsoft Public Sector Services.)

These are the sessions on my must-attend list. Looks like, as usual, TEC organizers managed to get a very impressive line-up of speakers and sessions. I have attended TEC (previously called DEC – Directory Experts Conference) before and based on my experience this has always been the most deep and cutting edge conference on Microsoft’s directory technologies you could find – far ahead of general purpose events like TechEd.

Registration and details can obviously be found at the conference web site.
