Huge Applause for Satya Nadella ! a huge standing ovation !!!!
Today is a momentum milestone bringing together two communities – Inspire and Ready
its how our customers see us as ONE !
There is no community like this !!
The scale 17 million people employed by people in the room in the eco system !
We’ve had an amazing year ! and the success is enormous !
First want to start a BIG THANK YOU ! sincere thank you !
What binds us together is the success of what our customers achieve!
That’s what’s makes us unique and different and to me as we look forward the opportunities to serve customers in the new era of the intelligent cloud and edge
What we will see going forward will be more pro found.
that’s what happening with computing its becoming part of our world and life! there’s computing in every home, office, stadium, factory, industry, oil, gas, retail and everything
self driving car, connected fridge, any engine, all has computing
Part of our fabric of life and society!
We are lucky to be in the tech industry!
Tech spend today is around 5% expected to double by 2030
What about the other 90%?
All of the parts of the world is going to be power by digital technology
Our job not to celebrate just our growth but to stay grounded and how we are helping !
We have a tremendous responsibility with all this opportunity, do our best work when it comes to privacy
Privacy is a human right !
GDPR we have put a lot of work into and its not a one time thing, everything we do has a sense of compliance
Cyber security again we need to do our best work
The tech accord is a great example of that, we need to make sure the most vulnerable populations are protected from that
and AI we have to have a set of principals that guide the development and use of AI, anything we do doesn’t sway opinions
a set of design and ethical principals
Its that opportunity that grounds us in the mission to empower every person and every organisation on the planet to achieve more!
every product we build, innovate, all has to be driven by this mission
Satya tells students and people thinking of joining Microsoft
“Look if you want to be cool look somewhere else, if your committed to make others look cool join Microsoft !!!
That’s what captures what we do and the rest of the presentation is about other people being cool
how are we empowering people and digital transformation outcomes?
moving to this people centred experience, de couple of devices, multi sense and multi device
infuse everything with AI
Power all of us we need ubiquitous computing fabric.
Lets break into these further
Start at the bottom with Ubiquitous computing,
Scale of Azure, most compliance of any public cloud
Scale is enormous,
Project Natick with underwater datacentre
Build a datacentre in 90 days!!
80% of population live around the ocean.
Its 0 emissions fully self efficient!
Computing needs will go beyond
We are taking Azure to Azure Stack
Every use case powered by something like this.
Walmart using Azure, Office 365 and dynamics
Fortune 1 in the world
take IOT sensors in fridges and reflect inventory online, these are the type of scenarios we can enable
Chevon there key goal is to make sure compute is available in the most remote locations, digitization of the oil field
Manual operation has a digital feedback loop and accuracy and benefits for environment
the speed of light is a massive issue so they are deploying Azure stack where the AI need to happen
taking cameras in warehouses, trunks, containers so they can ensure safety
Using AI for object recognition to ensure safety
Azure sphere recently launched early this year
Bring silicon design that secure by design and bring OS and cloud service to ensure 9 billion microcontrollers become Azure compute endpoints
Need to make these computing endpoints are secure and capable of doing sophisticated processes.
Azure sphere used across a lot of difference customers
Has always lead with innovations, last year we spoke about Quantum,
Take MRI machines and tissue finger print and could detect cancer early, the lookup wasn’t possible with standard computing but with Quantum they will change how a MRI scan will change and detect cancer early on!
Next over to AI
Microsoft working on AI for almost 20 years when Bill Gates started Microsoft Research
In the last few years
2016 the first time we were able to have human like object recognition
2017 is when we had human parity with speech recognition
and this year we participated in Stanford Q and A
March this year to do translation on human parity
one of the largest private hospital
Blue Metal AI partner of the AI.
Took AI in Azure and took it to healthcare costs, we need to make sure health outcomes are better and costs coming down
Change retail experience, Have intelligent shelves where they can do real time pricing and ask questions, real time coupons and trade marketing
They are experimenting with drive through, drive through app and accuracy.
they want to do end to end drive through, do delivery and use AI to drive next breakthrough of experience
Massive project on a connect animal kingdom, they are
They have bird cages
With sensors and cameras and want to support conservations studying purple martin birds
A sad part the population of the bird has decreased close to 40% in the last 30 years
trying to study and we understand what we can do to help
entire challenge how to collect the data, how to be a continuous digital feedback loop and was the inspiration for the connected bird cages
Have AI models to help understand what we can do. Fantastic use cases where AI can make a difference
Another use of AI is autonomy
use multiple sensor and Toyota build a warehouse, the pallets are taking the material and showing up at the right place at the right time.
autonomy problem is training, what if we can simulate can be used for cars, drones and pallets, take the terrain and simulate it and reduce time and cost for training!
Massive breakthrough autonomy into a toolkit
have the ability of full duplex conversation, Microsoft working on this for multiple years
500 million friends, celebrity on TV, written a book
How do make sure the bot identifies itself as a bot?
How do we interact with social bots and that’s what we want to learn.
These social experience will come common place
Transition to last big shift to people centric experience
built applications are device centric, its not broken free of the device
put people at the center
Gaming we are learning a ton, the way games are built, played and where and how they are watched is shifting
Pretty exciting to see how gaming is changing and we are learning how multi sense and multi device
Satya says he has many devices and surface studio at home and in the office, multiple devices and lets look at some.
Satya starts with an Android phone which he says is just a Microsoft 365 endpoint!
Start with communications and he uses three things
- Outlook as open loop to communicate with anyone and inside the company
- Teams the inner loop that’s how i stay into with groups and projects
- Yammer – outer loop, in touch with 100k people
We start with Outlook
Outlook super helpful, go and download it !
We recently added Do not disturb so when at events or meetings it wont distract you
Outlook can be universal inbox, for outlook, Office 365 and even G Mail
Outlook is the best G Mail client !
Over to Teams
Help me stay close with the teams im working with
We can access files
Over to Yammer
I get news feed its the 100K people at the company talking about anything
Launcher on Android
Lets move to another phone an iPhone, to Satya again its another Microsoft 365 endpoint
LinkedIn news feed my most important information, spend time checking out professionals and industry
Looking at metrics to stay grounded on reality, where we have deployed customer success managers
Look at Edge again and its multi device
I can continue reading on the PC
Cortana commitments and i say follow up tomorrow and
Things i use a lot is Stream
Upload video and transcript
You can also see people in the video and search by people and transcript
The opportunity is everyone to take Microsoft 365 and apply it
145 years old , 40K employees
CEO said how much Microsoft 365 is at the core of their transformation agenda
Wants to keep 40K people in sync from the mines to the office
Its not just large business
Everybody that works at Jack’s is driver, back office, use staff hub, one drive, all deskless
Are using Teams
Workflows around the providers
Took Teams and built templates
Bed management and electric medical records
to ensure the best patient outcome is delivered
empowering 2 billion first line workers
In the past there was no pcs
Now they are buying hololens and these hands free interfaces is driving productivity, use remote assistance and layout
Use dynamics on how they manage they field resources
every IOT project become predicted maintenance
One example that stood out to Satya
More things will be digitized
Every workflow is automated, built a whole, PowerBI, PowerApps and Flow changes how applications are built
Heathrow Airport Example
Plane takes off every 45 second, 80million passengers and 1 employee saw opportunity
He had been a security officer for 13 years and saw the amount of paper and time spending so he look at Microsoft and the apps
saved 11K sheet of paper, 288 hours of manual input data
Created 17 PowerApps used across the airport and its the tip of the iceberg
Started with his dad taking him to the airport as a kid, when the op came to become security officer he grabbed it.
Provided security and customer service
When it comes to paper processing so involved inputting data,
Wanted to make this digital process so learnt PowerApps from Blogs himself ! and now he has a new job !
What’s next ?
Transform Heathrow into digital workplace, airside , security, CEO
There’s more than 2billions first line workers and starts with digitization of process
Example of dynamics 365 and hololens
Thanks to a secure Azure IOT sensor a alert was received from water tower
Dynamics 365 has automated the scheduling on the job taking consideration on the job and location of engineer
The engineer arrives and she first can check the job on mobile device from dynamics 365
already been to this job last week and needs a specialist on this to help
This would take some time to get a product expert but with remote assist and hololens it can be done in seconds
Dynamics has provided the work order to Remote Assist
surfaces relevant information and also dynamics recommended an expert
Lets call Chris
Chris asked what have you tried so far and she shows Chris with annotations
Dynamics provided Chris the work order information and PowerBI dashboard information
Chris has the same readings and he’s seen this before and usually its the relay
Chris opened drawings from SharePoint
Chris points out the relay location
Chris asks to check the relay and follow the line hes drawn
and confirm cables and connections are in good shape
Ok that’s all good, Chris suggests checking the relay contacts
Chris is right they are looking corroded
Do you have a spare, “Yeah i do “
swapped, lets close the lid and power up
Now the call has ended we can close the work order and this is reflected in Dynamics with all the closure details
Solution saved to SharePoint and others can check it out.
Let check PowerBI
With Azure IOT we can see metrics in Real time
this is beginning with bringing dynamics 365 and mixed reality
Over to Raanah about the vision of meetings
Azure IOT opening up potential in smart building space
Steelcase measure workspace utilisation
With camera and simple sensors to Azure IOT they can understand how workspace is used.
We can search for rooms with equipment in real time from sensors
You can see if a room is occupied even if its booked in Exchange
Get turn by turn directions to the room
We have a prototype device in the meeting room that recognises people, voice transcriptions
Ask to start meeting
Recognise the people in the meeting with voice transcripts
Meeting notes on the left
now we go into Teams with Cortana
Cortana can recognise conversation and bring up relevant documents
Daniel is using Holobeam to call Andrei
Holobeam prototype 3d meeting experience. Camera behind let other in the meeting room see what Daniel is seeing
Here’s andrei appearing in the meeting room as if hes there
we expand the model
back over to Satya
opportunity to pull solutions together
Close out on culture
Or Mission and culture are the two book ends to drive forward
Culture of learning and growth mindset
Are we doing every can about customers?
Do we have the diversity ?
bar has been raised, we will have to step up as company, ecosystem. industry , society
You want to serve the world you need to represent the world
Break free of previous business models and come together
ultimately though culture creates, amazing platform for us and digital technology touches every fabric of life
Take the most pressing challenge of the world, climate changes, education
You have the ability to use this platform to make a difference
