  • Advancing Growth in New and Emerging Markets through IT
    Microsoft has identified new and emerging markets (NEMs) as a focus of future growth. This article is intended for Business Decision Makers (BDMs), IT Decision Makers, and Chief Executives to help them understand Microsoft ITs response to the potential of these markets. The article first describes how Microsoft identified markets for focus. It then shows how Microsoft Information Technology (Microsoft IT) used cross-function teams to identify gaps in user experience, and how those gaps were prioritized and tracked for improvements. The article concludes with a discussion of the resulting benefits of this data-driven analysis, and how Microsoft IT plans to apply and revise the model and its applications.

  • Cloud-Based StorSimple Reduces Expenses and Minimizes Risk
    Storage backup and recovery in the cloud saves organizations significant operational and capital expense compared to the use of traditional backup methods. StorSimple provides an intelligent storage-management logic with which to store files locally or in Microsoft Azure, based on each file's usage frequency. To test this ability in a production environment, Microsoft IT built a StorSimple solution for a typical workload, and realized 44 percent operational savings.

  • Aligning the IT Organization to Deliver Modern Applications
    The recent creation of app stores containing small, focused apps, available across a range of consumer devices, has created challenges for Information Technology (IT) departments in many organizations. In order to address these challenges, Microsoft IT created a centralized app certification process and single app portfolio, both managed from a single point. This provided a mechanism for Microsoft to provide apps developed in an agile software development environment, to distribute these apps to users across a range of devices, and to still maintain control in terms of functionality, security, and regulatory and corporate compliance.
