How does a retail giant administer COVID-19 vaccinations in days, not months? Can a series-A startup’s innovation help identify massive fraud in seconds instead of hours? For leaders driving business growth, the cloud has forever opened our minds to endless possibilities. In a time of tectonic shifts in all markets and ways of life, what will distinguish the brands we choose tomorrow is an ability to inspire developer ingenuity, create immersive customer experiences, and not just adapt to changing needs, behaviors, and trends, but to anticipate them.

It sounds good, doesn’t it? But the environment and endurance needed to keep innovating can be hard for companies of all sizes, and this is why we’re kicking off Innovate for Impact on Tuesday, April 5 from 9:00 AM to 10:30 AM Pacific Time. When you register for the event, you’ll get to hear from thought leaders, technologists, and executives about the business impact of app innovation from every angle. Let’s talk about entrepreneurial ethos, dev culture, and how to read and leverage trends with cloud-native and AI technology—there’s so much we can learn from each other on this journey.

The event also brings together both born-in-cloud and enterprise perspectives on how to solve big challenges. You’ll learn how Aqua Security, Confluent, Elastic, Trimble, and KPMG defied conventional thinking and built something new by empowering their teams, forging business models, and scaling through better processes. Don’t miss the opportunity to learn from tangible, motivating cloud stories—not just what each company achieved, but what they overcame to differentiate.

Microsoft is one of the most innovative companies I know—from championing innovation through a ‘growth mindset’, to transforming our own business model to be cloud-first, to continuing to be at the forefront of delivering immersive experiences in gaming and the metaverse. Microsoft’s ability to continuously reimagine, this clairvoyance at predicting and getting ahead of trends, and the humility to “always be learning” is what makes it successful.

We’ve learned a lot from the thought leaders who joined us for this event, and I can’t wait to share the learnings with all of you. I also hope you’ll participate in the Q and A during the event.  We want to hear from you and have an ongoing dialogue about making innovation real.

Thank you and enjoy!
