This year's Microsoft Ignite conference ran from Nov. 14 to 17 in Seattle.

The show was available both in person and online with more than 500 sessions scheduled across eight topic areas. Microsoft planned to make most of these sessions available virtually for free. CEO Satya Nadella and other company leaders delivered keynotes on the company's AI initiatives across its product portfolio in productivity, security, data analytics and the cloud.

Microsoft's focus is on AI and how the technology can help customers work more efficiently, reduce costs and improve security for its customers. The company's investments in OpenAI will manifest in upcoming products, such as Security Copilot, which integrates with existing Microsoft security tools and third-party products to assist security teams.
