Thank you for watching the Q4FY19 All Hands

Team, thank you for watching the Q4FY19 All Hands from the Microsoft Technology Center in Singapore. We had a packed agenda with customer references, partner demos, a cameo by Sanjay Patel and who could forget, Mark the robot!

Congratulations to our Champion and Accelerate winners for Q4FY19. Read more about these rock stars on our Microsoft Asia Pacific Yammer group to learn how they seized opportunities with their technical skills, tenacity and grit. Well done team!

Vanessa Sorenson shared a transformational Azure win with Kotahi Logistics in New Zealand and I shared some of our key wins across the markets including the Philippine Airlines Kaizala win.

Our partners Ramco Systems and Certis shared demos using Hololens and a robot concierge service. Big thanks to Choeun Chon moderating the partner panels.

The recording of the Q4FY19 All Hands is available on the Microsoft Asia Pacific Stream channel. Share your feedback in the comments section or on Kaizala.

We also shared the incredible opportunity available to us in helping our customers win with artificial intelligence, from a comprehensive study we did with IDC. Here are some of the high level takeaways:

  • 82% of business leaders in APAC agree that AI is instrumental in staying competitive.
  • We need to use this proof point in every discussion we have with customers.

  • YET 54% are yet to embark on their AI journeys
  • We have a massive opportunity to help businesses get a competitive advantage.

  • AND business leaders agree that AI will double the rate of innovation and employee productivity
  • in Asia Pacific in the next three years. The market is ready, the customers are ready, the business decision makers are more than ready. Let’s go team!

As we wrap up the FY, I urge you to use the resources we have, including case studies, industry relevant solutions and learning resources to elevate our conversations with customers and partners. On that note, I’m pleased to see that 665 have already completed the Technical Skills training, before the 31 May deadline.

Our Future

APAC: To mark Girls in ICT day, some of our APAC team interviewed their children on their aspirations, perspectives on skills and the difference between girls and boys. The video is incredibly heartwarming, and at the same time, humbling. Our future generations are automatically inclusive and as leaders, we need to un-learn to learn.
