On Thursday 23rd April, regional Microsoft thought leaders will give local chief information officers (CIOs) a detailed look at how they can reimagine their enterprise in a digital age.
For the first time in Trinidad and Tobago, Microsoft will host Transform, Lead, Grow 2015 at the Arthur Lok Jack Graduate School of Business. The forum will focus on how businesses can harness technology to deliver fluid customer experiences, optimize networking, improve decision-making, increase responsiveness and reduce cost, all while ensuring the company’s sensitive data is safe and protected.
“The digital age is changing how we do business. Many companies are looking for the smoothest path to reimagining their business models, processes and teams. While many understand that there are technological forces enabling change, they may not know how to harness these forces to implement a solution that will fit their company’s size, industry, geography or maturity level,” said Frances Correia, country manager, Microsoft Trinidad and Tobago, Eastern and Southern Caribbean.
“Microsoft is the productivity and platform company for the mobile-first and cloud-first world. With $15 billion invested to build our massive cloud infrastructure, and our products and services deeply informed by our first-hand experience running enormous datacentres and some of the largest globally-scaled services, we operate with a challenger mindset. We’ve helped organisations across the globe transform digitally, leading to growth, and we hope to do the same in Trinidad and Tobago.” Correia added.
