Touch

Editor: Rebecca Lambert
Publication manager: Andy Clayton-Smith

The Autumn 2014 issue of Touch is out now, focusing on Microsoft technology in government, healthcare, education and public safety and national security. In this edition, we speak with Joel Cherkis, Microsoft’s general manager of Worldwide Government and Defense, to get his perspective on the impact the Microsoft CityNext initiative has had so far. We also find out more about how his team is capitalising on the early success of CityNext to achieve even more with cities in future.

Elsewhere in the magazine, we explore how the Microsoft cloud is providing healthcare providers with the confidence they need to be patient centric, cost efficient and compliant. Plus, we look at successful Microsoft and partner technology implementations at Asia Pacific University of Technology and Innovation, the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, and municipalities in the San de Sénart region of France.
