Quest Software Unveils the Experts Conference 2009 Keynotes
Quest Software, Inc. (Nasdaq: QSFT) today announced keynote speakers for The Experts Conference (TEC) 2009. For the first time, day one of TEC for Directory & Identity will feature a joint keynote presentation covering the complete Microsoft identity stack, led by Microsoft group program managers Stuart Kwan and Alex Weinert. In its first year, the TEC for Exchange keynote will feature senior technology architect, Konstantin Ryvkin of Microsoft. Presented by Quest and sponsored by Microsoft, TEC 2009 will be held in Las Vegas March 22-24, and in Berlin September 14-16, 2009.

TEC 2009 will be divided into two distinct conferences, TEC for Directory & Identity and TEC for Exchange. The TEC for Directory & Identity keynote will feature Stuart Kwan, group program manager for Federated Identity and Security, and Alex Weinert, group program manager for Identity Lifecycle Manager (ILM), along with fellow program management leaders from the Microsoft identity and access engineering organization. The leadership team will kick off TEC for Directory & Identity with a keynote that highlights technology roadmaps and focuses on the event theme, “Identity without Borders: Bringing the Identity Metasystem to the Enterprise.”

The TEC for Exchange keynote presentation by Konstantin Ryvkin, senior technology architect in the Microsoft Business Collaboration Services Group, will help launch the first annual event’s theme, “Exchange Under the Hood: Architecting and Administering Exchange 2007, the Foundation for Unified Communications.” In his keynote address, Ryvkin will share powerful advice for architecting and managing large-scale Exchange environments gained from nine years of specialization in enterprise messaging design and architecture at Microsoft.

The new format of two distinct conferences enables participants to drill down into the technical details relevant to their specific organizations and job functions. Attendees will learn powerful new techniques for driving best practices, management efficiencies and enhanced security into their IT environments.

“We’re thrilled to have Konstantin help us launch the first-ever TEC for Exchange. He is a highly respected architect and truly understands the demands and challenges of complex, widely distributed environments from nearly a decade at Microsoft,” said Gil Kirkpatrick, Quest expert-in-residence and TEC founder. “Furthermore, Stuart and Alex are among the top speakers of TEC for Directory & Identity, returning year after year with a strong commitment to educating and learning from this tremendous community. These keynote speakers will definitely set the stage for the best event yet!”
