Last week, the Nordic Infrastructure Conference (NIC) kicked off in Oslo, Norway for the seventh time. After the conference’s first debut in 2012, it has become one of the most valued events in the Nordics to attend.

NIC has grown to become one of the biggest events in the Nordics and allows business individuals and IT experts to achieve a deeper understanding of the future of the IT industry. The conference not only brings with it 1,000 plus attendees, but some of the biggest IT Vendors like Nordcloud, AWS, Microsoft, IBM, Veeam, redhat, Citrix, and many more.

What separates NIC from other conferences is its ability to aim at the growing trends in the Nordic region. This year there was certainly a lot of Microsoft focused talks at the conference, but it was broken down into nine different categories providing up to more than 100+ hours of sessions over three days. This year the eight different categories focused on Server & Client, Cloud Platform, Management & Automation, Security, Cloud Productivity and Analytics, CxO, Partners, and Instructor-Led Hands-on-Labs.

The biggest speakers this year were legends themselves, John Craddock (Identity and Security Architect), Paula Januszkiewicz (CEO, Cybersecurity Expert), Sami Laiho (Windows OS), and a lot more Microsoft MVP’s. Not forgetting our own Nordcloud CTO Ilja Summala (Cloud Expert), who along with the others gave a fantastic speech about the past and future of IT.

We hope that everyone enjoyed the event and want to thank all the wonderful people who came by the Nordcloud stand to not only to take part in our Nintendo Switch giveaway but to learn more about what Nordcloud can do for you. See you all next year!
