Microsoft Ignite was opened by Satya Nadella on 2 November 2021. An inspiring session.
The headline for the opening was, our economy and society is undergoing a sea change of digitization. Satya talked about emerging technology trends and innovations across the Microsoft Cloud that will transform every business and industry going forward.
We are a moment of real structural change. The case for digital transformation has been never so urgent. What will happen and what we need to do to support our business is core with the transition of mobile to a cloud era to ubiquitous computing and ambient intelligence.
There are four key trends that he mentioned
- Hybrid work - when and where we work
- The trend for a hyper connected business with omnichannel reach with freely flowing data and intelligence
- Every business is a digital business - multi cloud multi edge
- The need to protect everything end to end, with security being the biggest risk
There is also a need for business to meet sustainability goals and track our own carbon footprint.
