Microsoft’s mission is to empower every person and organisation on the planet to achieve more. Our mission is grounded in our world view, the present in which we live and the future we strive to create. The opportunity going forward is that of digital transformation, whether it’s an agricultural field, a hospital bed or a car — people, places and things are becoming increasingly digitized, increasingly transformed. We’re moving from what is today’s mobile-first, cloud-first world to a new world – one that is going to be made up of an intelligent cloud and an intelligent edge, the interface between the cloud and the real world. It is the layer of the mobile devices that we use to access the data in the cloud.
We think that technology should be a force for good, that it’s a powerful tool for transforming people’s lives. In the Middle East and Africa, we’re looking at how the intelligent cloud can help grow local businesses; how strategic partnerships can foster new skills; and how collaboration can help people live better lives. We’re focused on uplifting local markets, in building the digital skills people need to succeed and to thrive in the world today and the AI enhanced world of tomorrow. For us, it’s about creating opportunity and prosperity. This is how we believe we will move MEA Forward through digital transformation.
