Autumn 2015

OnWindows Magazine

Editor: Rebecca Lambert
Publication manager: Andy Clayton-Smith

The Autumn 2015 issue of OnWindows is out now, providing you with everything you need to know about enterprise technology on the Microsoft Windows platform. In this issue, our cover story looks at how today’s most successful businesses are using big data and analytics to gain competitive advantage. With comment from Joseph Sirosh, corporate vice president for machine learning at Microsoft, we find out about the challenges enterprises face in managing and analysing their data and discover how Microsoft’s new Cortana Analytics Suite can help.

We also feature some exclusive interviews in this issue.

Bruno Latchague, Dassault Systèmes’ senior executive vice president, charts the organisation’s rapid transition into a 3DEXPERIENCE company. Meanwhile, Microsoft’s Jennifer Byrne tells us how the public sector can build trust in the cloud. And Microsoft’s Johan Norvik explains how telecommunications companies are reassessing their business models to great effect.

Elsewhere in the magazine, you can read about how Microsoft’s Digital Crimes Unit is poised to tackle cybersecurity. And hear from BIAN’s Hans Tesselaar about the progress the banking standards association is making to develop the most complete banking industry framework. Plus, there’s the usual technology implementations, executive insight and much more.
