When it comes to addressing our most pressing environmental and social challenges, technology’s role to play is both exciting and incontrovertible. Big data and advanced analytics are enabling companies to zero in on the minutiae of their carbon production and the inefficiencies that magnify it, while cloud computing is providing the computational force to accurately project how shifts in operations can yield both increased sustainability and dividends.

Ever at the forefront of realising dramatic technological change, Microsoft is characteristically driven to accelerate the aforementioned transformations by augmenting its cloud capabilities with the power of artificial intelligence (AI). “At Microsoft we are committed to delivering on our environmental goals for sustainability and empowering our customers and partner ecosystem with the technology and tools to deliver on theirs,” says Mike Chan, General Manager Cloud and Enterprise, Microsoft APAC, in Matt High's company profile from November 2019. “This starts with data capture, harnessing the power of the intelligent Cloud – a platform of limitless compute scale – and driving innovation to meet demanding business challenges and create meaningful impact with speed and agility.”

Sherie Ng, General Manager Public Sector APAC, adds: "Democratising technology is of utmost importance to Microsoft; the power of accessibility and inclusivity in the digital age will transform industries, collectively enabling us to become more productive and jointly solve society’s biggest challenges.” 

This highlight from our company profile portfolio of 2019 takes an in-depth look at the strategies driving Microsoft’s AI for Good endeavours, use cases for technology’s role to play in the positive transformation of supply chains, communities and the environment, and the key partners consolidating the company’s capabilities.
