Symposium's vision for SaaS

There was a lot of interesting information releases during Sitecore Symposium last week. Since I had to summarise this for a work event, I figured I should reuse those thoughts, and write up a brief summary of some of the announcements that caught my attention, and (importantly) Sitecore's vision their future SaaS product:

When this year's speakers first found out that their talk abstracts had been accepted, there was a bit of discussion on the Sitecore Slack about things speakers might want to know or do. And I've been meaning to write this up for a while, because there were quite a few things I saw that were worth sharing to help anyone else who's looking forward to their first opportunity to speak...
