Organisations that prioritise sustainability have the potential to reap multiple benefits, including meeting increased consumer demand for sustainable products and services, improving operational efficiency and attracting new talent.
Microsoft has already established itself as a front runner in evolving a greener approach to commercial and civic life. In this issue’s cover story, we take a closer look at some of the challenges facing industry and public sector organisations as they strive to develop credible, robust strategies for sustainable operations, and some of the early wins being made in this important area.
Also in this issue, we consider the future of cybersecurity in financial services. The conflict in Ukraine has heightened the awareness of the requirement for businesses to shore up their data security, an area where spending already totals $6 trillion worldwide. We speak with Microsoft’s corporate vice president for worldwide financial services Bill Borden about the $20 billion the company will invest in cybersecurity over the next five years and highlight some compelling examples of industry partner solutions that can deliver increased levels of protection.
Elsewhere, we speak with Microsoft’s worldwide strategy director for media and entertainment Simon Crownshaw about the inexorable rise of highly personalised content. We also explore how tools like the Microsoft Power Platform are driving fundamental changes in the individual viewing experience.
In addition, Microsoft’s senior director of worldwide retail and consumer goods strategy Shanthi Rajagopalan outlines how retailers and consumer goods companies are making supply chains more sustainable, while Jeremy M. Goldberg, worldwide director of critical infrastructure at Microsoft, shares his insights on how we can drive sustainability throughout the entire public sector. There is also the usual round-up of industry news, thought-leader perspectives and case studies that showcase the very latest advances in Microsoft technology.
We hope you enjoy the read.
