At Microsoft, we believe it is our responsibility to help businesses, academic institutions, governments and individuals get the skills they need to succeed. That includes arming them with trusted technology solutions to innovate in today’s tech intense world. Organizations that fail to use modern solutions to address modern challenges simply cannot compete – they will struggle to retain the best talent and to meet the evolving expectations of employees. At the same time, companies that have committed to their digital transformation are seeing tremendous pay off, in the form of more engaged employees, easier access to data insights and faster pace of innovation.
