Unification is the name of the game. July has been a busy month for Microsoft, with the high profile Worldwide Partner Conference just ending. But now we have confirmation of a brand new conference.

Going by the name of Unified Technology Event, this illustrious gathering is set for May 4, 2015.

The software titan will talk about pretty much all its products — from Azure, Exchange and Office 365, to SharePoint, SQL Server and System Center. And of course, Visio, Visual Studio, Windows, Windows Intune and Windows Server will also be the talking points.

Redmond announced this event, aimed specifically at enterprises on the Channel 9 blog, with Microsoft Corporate VP Steve Guggenheimer explaining that this event will not replace other gathers like TechEd:

“To be clear, TechEd lives on. This event will be a part of TechEd, co locating with that event to ensure the world of IT gets optimal access to all of the resources in one place. You asked, we listened…We’re excited to announce the inaugural unified Microsoft commercial technology event the week of May 4, 2015.”

Obviously, the BUILD developer conference will also continue to be held on set schedule, but this Unified Technology Event looks to be another high profile addition.

Only 285 days, then. Or in other words 9 months, 1 week and 4 days to kickoff.
