Microsoft TechDays 2019 – Improving the world through technology
Make no mistake. Everything that can be digitized will be digitized. Combine the virtually limitless computing power of the cloud with intelligent and perceptive devices at the edge of your network to create, develop and realize the solutions for today and tomorrow. But we must do it in an ethical, inclusive and sustainable way and you have a role to play.
Get involved, join the discussion and be part of building the skills of all the thousands of attendees at the largest Tech Conference in the Nordics.
