We’re so well connected today, teamwork needn’t ever stop. We’re in a new era of collaboration. And we’re sharing our dreams with our people, our clients, our friends and family – wherever, whenever.

“Digital transformation is about the mobility of the human experience.”
Satya Nadella, Microsoft CEO

Changing expectations

Today, we’re always on the move.

Mobility is redefining how we use technology.

Technology is freeing our work and our life to keep moving from anywhere.

An explosion in new devices. Ubiquitous connectivity.

It will only accelerate. In less than a decade, 75% of the global workforce will be Millennial, while Gen Z will begin to surge.

The next generations want to be free to bring their whole selves to what they do. Their work and life fitting together perfectly, everything in harmony.

For them, work will happen in any place, at any time. Their ideas, innovations and expectations will change and come to define how we think about work.

A new era of teamwork

With the rise of mobility, success depends on connecting people with each other and the information they need. With whatever device is handy.

Sharing work and ideas within a company and across teams, organizations and communities.

Powerful new tools where anyone can share and collaborate seamlessly, wherever they are.

Knowledge workers in global teams empowered to create and shape new ideas. Firstline Workers in shops, hotels and constructions sites equipped, up-to-date, informed and connected.

Ushering in a new era of teamwork. To drive business forward.
