The Greater Wheeling Chapter of the Association of Information Technology Professionals (AITP) CompTIA will hold its Wednesday, August 9, 2017 meeting at the White Palace in Wheeling Park, Wheeling WV. The White Palace is located inside Wheeling Park at 1801 National Rd, Wheeling, WV 26003.

Meeting Topic & Speaker

Jeff Morris, MCSE, CNE Surface Technical Specialist – Microsoft Corporation
An 18 year veteran at Microsoft, Jeff helps commercial enterprises digitally transform the way they innovate, how their employees work, and how they engage with customers. For the past 11 years, Jeff has worked in Microsoft’s mobile end client business, including Windows Mobile and Phone, and most recently, the Surface portfolio of Pro, Book, Studio, and Hub. He is an AITP Pittsburgh Chapter member and resides in Allison Park, PA with his wife Pamela and their three children.

Recently at Inspire, Satya Nadella unveiled Microsoft 365, which brings together Office 365, Windows 10 and Enterprise Mobility + Security, delivering a complete, intelligent and secure solution to empower employees. It represents a fundamental shift in how we will design, build and go to market to address our customers’ needs for a modern workplace.


The workplace is transforming—from changing employee expectations, to more diverse and globally distributed teams, to an increasingly complex threat landscape. From these trends, we are seeing a new culture of work emerging. Our customers are telling us they are looking to empower their people with innovative technology to embrace this modern culture of work.


With more than 100 million commercial monthly active users of Office 365, and more than 500 million Windows 10 devices in use, Microsoft is in a unique position to help companies empower their employees, unlocking business growth and innovation.


To address the commercial needs from the largest enterprise to the smallest business, we are introducing Microsoft 365 Enterprise and Microsoft 365 Business.
Attend this meeting and get a better understanding of Microsoft 365, including a hands on experience with the Surface portfolio of devices.
