What can you say about a week that saw the largest healthcare security fail yet, a sea-change for the largest enterprise software family, and a preview of the largest personal productivity suite? I'll say it was a really big week. For more details, you'll need to join us on Friday, Feb. 6, at 3:00 p.m. EST (noon PST) for InformationWeek Live.

Join us for a roundup of the top stories on for the week of Feb. 1, 2015. The show begins with a slightly irreverent "The Week in :60." Then we'll be talking with the editors and correspondents who brought you the top stories of the week to get the "story behind the story." We'll be sure to wrap things up with the always thought-provoking Geekend writer David Wagner.

Doug Henschen is up first this week with news of SAP's big reveal of the upcoming S/4 Hana release. We'll explore just what this major move to in-memory computing means for SAP customers, whether or not they decide to make the Hana leap.

Next, Kelly Sheridan will bring us up to date on the ever-changing world of Microsoft and the company's Office Preview for Windows 10. What will the new version mean for customers who have embraced Microsoft's cloud model? Just as important, what will it mean for the customers who haven't? We'll discuss all that and more with Kelly.

Of course, no episode of InformationWeek Live would be complete with David Wagner stopping by to talk about the Geekend. This week's column has me on pins and needles -- I can't wait to talk with Dave about what it all means for smartphone users.

[The new Office is ready for preview. Check out what Microsoft has in store.]

And that's not all: We'll also have Network Computing's Susan Fogarty join us to talk about the biggest news from the connected world; Dark Reading's Sara Peters coming by to share up-to-the-minute information on the Anthem, Sony, and other security breaches (and, as usual, scare the dickens out of us in the process); and InformationWeek editorial director Susan Nunziata to talk about the biggest topics of conversation in the InformationWeek community, the latest developments for the upcoming Interop conference, and much more.

Join us for the show and for the incredible Friday Afternoon Conversation that runs beside the program. This is your chance to talk with your fellow community members about the news items that mean the most to your profession, your enterprise, and your work life. We'll look forward to having your voice in the discussion!
