Topic 1 - Jeremy, you’ve been at Microsoft for a while and the company culture has been through a bunch of changes recently. Tell us about your background and what’s happening at Microsoft.
Topic 2 - Many people know Microsoft Systems Center, so where does OMS fit into the broader Microsoft management framework? How does this tie into recent announcements from Microsoft + Red Hat?
Topic 3 - Lots of new capabilities in OMS (Security, Automation, Logging, etc.), let's walk through what a customer's experience is like, especially across both private and public cloud environment
Topic 4 - Many technologists are struggling with the pace of technology change, especially with some of the advanced stuff that's trying to replicate the web-scale clouds (AWS, Azure, etc.). How does OMS help reduce some of that learning curve, and what are some of the individual tools that someone could remove/reduce by using OMS instead?
Topic 5 - In the OMS announcement, you talk about working closely with customers to build the experience. Tell us about how that process works and some of the feedback you got that wasn't expected?
