In this issue there’s a strong focus on the key themes that will be presented at Sibos 2017. You’ll find a sneak preview of some of the announcements in our marketwatch section, plus Peter Hazou presents an in depth look at the solutions that Microsoft and its partners will be presenting at the event in the financial services section.
Our cover story this time is focused on how advances in technologies including cloud, big data, advanced analytics and artificial intelligence (AI) are facilitating the digital transformation of every industry. Toni Townes-Whitley is joined by a number of key Microsoft partners to explain how.
In our communications and media section, we take a look at how telco companies can differentiate themselves in an increasingly challenging market by using the Microsoft Azure cloud. And in the manufacturing section you’ll find insight into how the internet of things, combined with new advances in artificial intelligence, smart robots and mixed reality, is enabling manufacturing companies to transform their business and realise levels of efficiency that they could only dream of in the past.
Plus, don’t miss our public sector feature on what can be done to bridge the widening skills gap, or our special interview with Microsoft’s ShiSh Shridhar on how analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence can empower retailers to accurately predict hyper-local demand for products.
Plus, there’s the usual mix of news, case studies, interviews and executive insight from across the Microsoft partner network.
We hope you enjoy this issue.
