Most of us during our working life have been exposed to Microsoft products in one way or another, yes, even our Apple friends. So it was with great anticipation that I attended my first ever Microsoft Inspire in Las Vegas last month, and it was absolutely massive, 40,000+ people on a scale I have never seen before.
The event itself is made up of a number of activities such as Keynote’s, Vendor exhibition areas, External Training, Microsoft meetings, Vendor meetings and night-time events. In this article, I’ll cover the key Microsoft messages and their focus for FY18/19.
Let us begin with Microsoft’s mission: Empower every person and every organisation on the planet to achieve more. I know, broad mission, however when you see the breadth and depth of products and services they have, you start to believe the hype. It is all about Digital transformation, and it is broken down as follows: Empower employees, Engage customers, Optimise operations and Transform products
This is achieved through their solution areas: Gaming, Modern Life, Modern Workplace, Business Applications, Applications and Infrastructure, Data & AI.
Taking the solution areas above, combining them Intelligent Cloud and Intelligent Edge, enables Microsoft to deliver on their core fundamentals of Empowered Experiences + Digital Transformation.
Part of our mission at CustomTec is to bring you, our valued clients, the latest robust solutions that can help you transform your business. Whether it is by delivering better bottom-line performance, the best user experience for your staff, or technology that transforms the way you engage with your clients.
There were a number of very cool examples of how Microsoft is enabling companies such as Carlsberg to gain efficiencies and produce better products for their clients. We at CustomTec will be engaging with Microsoft harder than ever in the coming months by leveraging the Azure platform to provide a true world class Hybrid Cloud Platform that can support all your requirements.
We would love to talk to you about your plans for the future, and how CustomTec can leverage our relationship with the world’s best brands to transform your business.
