MMS 2019 Jazz Edition

At the historic Hotel Monteleone in the French Quarter of New Orleans

What is MMS Jazz Edition?

Jazz Edition is the 2nd edition of MMS in 2019. This edition runs just 3 days instead of 4 and will be held in New Orleans instead of Minneapolis. If you couldn't make our May event, this will fit the bill. If you're considering other conferences, this is certainly the most technical you'll see.

This slightly smaller MMS maintains most of the great things that makes MMS special:

  • Sessions with 2 or more speakers
  • Extremely long Q&A for every session
  • Evening beer sessions where we take the last session easy after a long day
  • Smaller rooms and overall size to make sure you can get your questions in
  • Same great speakers from previous MMS events
Should I attend both MMS at MOA and New Orleans?

You can, but that's not the intent. MMS will always provide fresh content at each event, however as the conferences are six months apart, you can expect some overlap in content from May to November (more than you would get annually). If you can attend only one event, it should be the full 4-day MMS in May. But if that is already full or you had a scheduling conflict, then this 3-Day Jazz Edition should help keep you current with IT changes as well as to make sure you are networking with peers and great speakers.

How will the Jazz Edition differ from MMS at MOA?
  • 3 full days vs. 4 full days
  • No food court like MOA, but we've personally tested the hotel food and it's amazing!
  • Limited to 270 attendees vs. 750 at MOA
  • Many opportunities for evening events in the French Quarter
  • Fantastic restaurants, bars, nightclubs, city tours, and more for networking
What sort of sessions will I see?

Here is what MMS 2019 sessions looked like. Based on a recent attendee survey for wanted sessions, Jazz session topics will be:

  • Enterprise Management (ConfigMgr and Intune)
  • Provisioning Methods and Troubleshooting (OSD, Autopilot)
  • Automation (PowerShell, Azure Automation, Azure Functions, Flow, Logic Apps)
  • All Things 365 (Microsoft 365, Office 365)
  • Reporting (PowerBI, SSRS, PowerBI RS)
  • Endpoint Security (SCEP, BitLocker, Defender ATP)

If you're wondering if we'll have Cabana or Camping Sessions, the answer is we'll have Jam Sessions! Same idea.

Where is the Hotel for MMS Jazz Edition?

Just a block from Bourbon and Canal Streets in New Orleans, the Historic Hotel Monteleone has provided luxury and historic accommodations for travelers to New Orleans since 1886! Located just 30 minutes from the airport and inside the famous French Quarter, this hotel has it all including the famous Carousel Bar. MMS has bought out the entire event space at this hotel to make networking that much easier.

What's the refund policy?
You can cancel any time up until 10 Oct 2019. After that, only transfers to others is allowed.
Who is the official charity for Jazz Edition?

The official charity for MMS 2019 Jazz Edition is The National WWII Museum in New Orleans. We'll have a drop box for donations at the registration desk. MMS will raffle off a door buster ticket to MMS 2020 at MOA. Attendees showing to the museum will get $2 off if they show their badge when buying tickets on-site.
