One of the things I love most about being on the Azure team is the excitement around new innovations and how our customers use them to seize new opportunities. In the last few years, we’ve all faced unexpected challenges that have changed the way we work and how we think about digital transformation. Now, more than ever, digital technology is at the core of addressing the way our customers do business. That’s one reason why I was eager to join the Azure team and why I’m so excited about this year’sMicrosoft Ignite. As cloud computing becomes ubiquitous, we at Microsoft see tremendous opportunity to help our customers drive innovation across their businesses and improve their own customers’ experiences.
With theMicrosoft Cloud, we strive to provide the most trusted and comprehensive cloud to make this innovation and transformation happen. That’s why organizations of all types—from small businesses, governments, and non-profits to Fortune 500 companies—trust Microsoft as their technology provider. Since joining the team earlier this year, I’m inspired every day by seeing our customers develop products and services that seemed unthinkable and out of reach even just a few years ago.
During Microsoft Ignite this week, we’ll highlight the latest features and innovations inhybrid, multicloud, and edge computing. From end-to-end data capabilities and cloud-native applications to cross-functional collaboration, Microsoft cloud technologies help our customers deliver solutions and services faster to meet their own customers’ rapidly changing needs.
Today in this blog, I have the pleasure of sharing announcements across every one of these areas. Read on to learn more about what’s new today and how Microsoft Cloud and Azure are empowering our customers to innovate—and empowering the innovation to happen exactly where they need it most.
