This issue of the magazine will be available at a number of leading industry events around the world. If you’re attending an industry gathering over the coming months do look out for a copy of Technology Record and take the opportunity to engage with magazine staff who will also be attending.
As the Autumn 2022 issue was released, delegates from around the globe gathered in Amsterdam for Sibos, one of the leading financial services events of the year. As always Technology Record played an active role as media partner. In our main financial services feature, we talk with Microsoft’s Peter Hazou about the impact that Azure cloud services are having upon the core process of bank payments.
Despite widespread reaction to other crises such as rising energy prices, the theme of sustainability continues to be a priority for business leaders. In this issue’s cover story, we look at some the ways that cloud technologies and data are being used to help organisations reach sustainability goals while protecting profits.
In the 20 years since its launch, Microsoft Dynamics has grown from relatively humble beginnings as a suite of accounting and resource planning tools for small and medium-sized enterprises to a solution used by organisations of all sizes and across every sector. In a special Microsoft Dynamics 365 focus, Microsoft’s corporate vice president of business applications marketing Emily He tells us more about the latest iteration of the software, the partners who are helping Microsoft to power industry innovation and the customers that are using Dynamics 365 to gain real competitive advantage.
In the latest article in our series from Jeremy M. Goldberg, he focuses on the work being done to evolve the built environment in sustainable ways. In our Industrials & Manufacturing section, Microsoft’s Indranil Sircar discusses how manufacturers are using the firm's products to reimagine their supply chains to become more agile, resilient and sustainable. Elsewhere, Microsoft’s Shanthi Rajagopalan discusses how retail brands are adapting to build brand loyalty.
We also talk with Microsoft’s Simon Crownshaw about fundamental changes underway within the world of broadcasting and how Azure-based tools are driving wide-ranging innovation across the media and communications industry.
Elsewhere, there is our usual selection of news, case studies and thought leadership from Microsoft and its partners across all industries.
A packed issue! We hope you enjoy the read.
