Microsoft showcased an extensive gamut of technologies designed to deliver seamless services to organisations across the region at Gitex Technology Week 2019. Microsoft also hosted 32 regional partners and ISVs at its stand.

“Yet again, our presence at Gitex is a reflection of our absolute commitment to the UAE, and its National Agenda,” said Sayed Hashish, General Manager, Microsoft UAE.

“We’ve just completed the successful launch of our UAE cloud datacenters that are already empowering several organisations across the country and the Middle East to achieve more. This year, we come with all the power and intelligence of that cloud, to deliver the benefits of digital transformation to our customers.” Necip Ozyucel, Cloud and Enterprise Business Group Lead, said, “Microsoft with its partners is going to be a big part of the UAE’s digital transformation strategy. We are collaborating with various organization in the country to take mission of smart Dubai forward.”

Under the theme of “Trust. Transform. Innovate”, the Gitex 2019 Microsoft experience is split across four zones, each covering a quintessential aspect of digital transformation: datacenters, artificial intelligence, the modern workplace and security.

This year in spotlight, visitors to the Microsoft stand got a first-hand look at the ‘Digital Horse’ a collaborative project between Microsoft and its partners to promote the well-being of horses and increase their lifespan.

Built on innovations such as Machine learning, computer vision, advanced analytics, cognitive reasoning, the Internet of Things and augmented reality – the ‘Digital Horse’ creates an ecosystem that allows the 24-7 monitoring of animals – from health and nutrition, to sleeping and training.

The Datacenter Zone, operating under the message of Global Reach. Local Presence., tells the story of Microsoft’s recently launched UAE cloud regions that bring productivity, security, intelligent platforms and services to Middle East customers.
