CCTC’s First Friday Talk
October 2, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am
Every business is going through a transformation, seeking to leverage the latest advances in cloud computing, artificial intelligence and real-time data to create compelling and market moving experiences for their employees, partners and customers. What we have all discovered though is that digitizing your business is constrained primarily by company culture. You may need to break old habits, organize teams using new collaboration models, and encourage an agile methodology as you increase the velocity of how you bring new digital experiences to market. In this presentation, we will discuss Microsoft’s digital transformation and how what Microsoft learned through that process is helping their customers accelerate their journey. Areas of innovation such as Mixed Reality, IoT and AI will be discussed.
