Project Main Details
Voice submissions should be conversational, dynamic, and relatable. Having a slight/suble disdain for the competition (Microsoft) could be helpful as well. 2016-04-07 00:27:10 GMT 2016-04-11 16:00:00 (GMT -08:00) Pacific Time (US & Canada) Yes (click here to learn more about ) Closed 46 40 1 direct invitation(s) have been sent by the voice seeker resulting in 1 audition(s) and/or proposal(s) so far.

Microsoft boots Okta from its biggest conference "due to broad competition between our companies."
Why? Microsoft is worried that cloud forward companies w￼￼￼￼￼￼￼ill choose Okta for IDaaS.
￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼Or Salesforce.com for CRM.
Or Box for File Sharing Or Google apps for Productivity.
Or AWS for Cloud Platform Or an iPhone.
Or a Chrome browser.
￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼Or anything that is not Microsoft.
Companies evaluating an IDaaS solution today ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼have to make a foundational choice.
A choice between a cloud-first architecture and a complex extension to an on-premise environment.
￼A choice between a beautiful and seamless experience versus a bunch of solutions cobbled together.
The flexibility to select the vendor of their choice versus forcing proprietary software from 1999.
￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼That is not innovation.
￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼That is not best of breed.
So...Instead of being open and foster choice, Microsoft bundles a bunch of products together.
And packages it in an Enterprise Agreement that is complex and expensive.
￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼And make it seem like some components are “free” or “included.”
￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼But you know what they say about free.
￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼And that EA price keeps going up for products that they don’t use or don’t want, which results in hiring consultants to save licensing costs.
￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼And a solution that is disjointed and messy.
We live in a new world.
EAs and Bundles are Out.
Choice is In.
￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼Some think that Microsoft is the safe choice.
￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼We think it is very risky.
Okta is different.
￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼Our product is simply better.
￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼Let’s do a POC and BVA to prove it.
This is why many organizations evaluate EMS but choose Okta.
Ask Microsoft to connect you with a happy customer
Can someone please step forward? Not even one?
So team, in conclusion... if you remember nothing else, follow these 3 simple steps when competing with Microsoft
￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼1. Paint the big vision
￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼2. Combat their O365 or EA Play
￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼3. Prove the Big Vision
￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼And we will see you at Ignite, Satya...we’ll bring you another shirt.
￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼Okta. Always Open. Always On.
