PCMAN – As one of the leading innovative companies within the IT world, how Microsoft sees the world will affect the society. They envision the modern workforce as a mobile and constantly collaborating mass of creative and productive people. This view also influenced the new products and services that they plan to launched in the future. So how does Microsoft see the future?
Start The Cloud Future
Under the leadership of SatyaNadella, Microsoft has been seen to re-commit itself to the philosophy of mobility and cloud services. Its famous tagline “mobile first, cloud first” has been repeated and adapted to most of their campaigns. This foundation has emphasized the universal platform in Windows 10. They created an idea where users can access data and apps from any devices that run Windows 10—and they made it into the very basic foundation on every other Microsoft strategy.
Microsoft has started to shape its future—and ours—into a cloud based environment where everything is mobile and connected. By using their famous tagline as the based of their recent conferences, it is only a matter of time until Microsoft finally translates their newfound enthusiasm into measurable actions.
Microsoft has made it clear that they strongly believe that highly creative people will tackle tough business problems by collaborating in makeshift teams using powerful tools—Microsoft’s tools. The next generation is going to be more tech savvy than the previous ones, and they need suitable tools to accommodate their work.
Microsoft has been focusing on preparing series of tools that will result great collaboration—the new Office 2016 for an example. The Office 365 Groups allow users to form impromptu meetings, keep team members up to date with progress, and collaborate on documents in real time. Skype for Business has also been carefully designed by Microsoft to be more powerful than just a video conferencing tool.
SatyaNadella believes that the new features in Windows 10 and Office 365 will create a modern way to conduct business for knowledgeable workers. According to Microsoft, the modern workforce will be dominated with collaboration and teamwork as ways to solve problems and make decisions. Bottom line, Microsoft has done a good job in presenting their modern workforce vision, and providing the tools that will only make that vision possible.
