Businesses increase their spending on developing and installing software applications to improve their operations and overall business efficiency. Cloud computing or on-demand. Microsoft’s Executive Chairman CEO Satya Nadella said, Nearly 95 percent of all new digital workloads will be deployed on the Cloud by 2025,
While addressing the company’s annual conference ‘Microsoft Inspire 2022′, Nadella said that Cloud is foundational to how companies will be competitive in the future. “Every customer I speak with is clear-eyed about aligning their IT investments to scale with demand. Moving to the Cloud allows them to just do that – converting their spending from CapEx to OpEx”, Nadella told the partner community.
“It’s the only way to navigate the headwinds we are confronting today. This is not some abstract concept,” he added.
Microsoft is set to add ten new data centers in 10 global markets to deliver faster access to services and help address data residency needs, Nadella informed.
The cloud demand is continuously growing across the business and is set to exceed USD 1 trillion by 2025. According to Gartner, Cloud will be the centerpiece of new digital experiences.
Microsoft announced new benefits with the ‘ISV Success Programme’, to help independent software vendors (ISVs) innovate rapidly, build well-architected applications, publish them to our commercial marketplace and grow their sales.
“Currently in private preview, and broadly available in fall 2022, the program is intended to be the pathway to ISV success in the Microsoft Cloud Partner Programme,” said the company.
Participants can access nearly $128,000 in benefits to utilize productive, modern, innovative developer tools to accelerate software production. The company also announced Microsoft Cloud for Sovereignty, explicitly designed for the government sector.
The new solution allows public sector clients to build and digitally change workloads in the Microsoft Cloud while fulfilling compliance, safety, and procedure necessities.
“Public sector customers can harness the full power of the cloud including broad platform capabilities, resiliency, security, and scale, while having greater control over their data, residency, and transparency to its operational and governance processes,” said the tech giant.
On Artificial Intelligence, Nadella said that by 2025, 10 percent of all data would be produced by generative AI models.
