At Microsoft, we’re using Azure Machine Learning to improve the effectiveness of the operation schedules for our buildings’ heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems to reduce costs and increase employee comfort. We used Azure Databricks and Azure Machine Learning Studio to examine data from our HVAC systems and buildings, combined with weather forecast information, to predict building occupancy and HVAC behavior. Using machine learning is helping us optimize operations and drive digital transformation.
Microsoft Teams makes communication and collaboration more efficient. It’s a natural fit for Microsoft receptionists, who share files and answer questions every day. In this video, learn what happened when a group of receptionists upgraded from Skype for Business to Microsoft Teams. Find out what surprised them most, hear their questions and reactions, and learn how Teams improves their daily workflow with faster file sharing, efficient communication, and seamless collaboration.
To streamline update management and eliminate the need for on-premises infrastructure to deploy feature and quality updates, Microsoft CSEO implemented Windows Update for Business (WUfB). It provides centralized management and reduces the level of effort required to keep Windows 10 devices up to date. With WUfB we can control how and when Windows 10 devices at Microsoft receive updates, configure restart policies for enforcement, and use analytics services to monitor our update compliance.
In this webinar, Microsoft experts share the processes and tools used to move our monitoring services into Azure. They discuss how we utilized solutions that use native Azure functionality to recreate certain SCOM functions and views in Azure Monitor. You will also learn how DevOps teams use log analytics to gain more visibility into end-to-end application performance.
In their efforts to shift to the cloud, many enterprises struggle with modernizing their core business processes. At Microsoft, we designed a new services-oriented architecture for the Finance department’s procurement and payment processes. This modern service, known as Procure-to-Pay, replaces 36 monolithic on-premises apps with a cloud-based, end-to-end user experience. Built entirely in the cloud, Procure-to-Pay utilizes Azure’s inherent efficiencies to reduce capital expenditure costs, scale dynamically, and promote referencing of certified master data.
In this webinar, experts discuss the process and tools Microsoft is using to natively manage cloud resources through Azure. Learn how Azure Update Management, Resource Manager Templates, and Desired State Configuration work together to provide infrastructure management for our environment.
