For workplace safety in more than 800 buildings and 190 countries/regions, Microsoft Global Security and Microsoft IT take advantage of the Internet of Things and monitor the health of 25,000 smart devices—like security cameras, panic buttons, alarms, access control systems, and sensors. If any device fails, physical security, productivity, and company assets are at risk. With data analytics on performance and likelihood of failure, we proactively manage risk, do predictive maintenance, and boost device uptime.
As an early adopter of SQL Server 2016, Microsoft IT identified four features and enhancements that have the potential to increase productivity for people who design, develop, and maintain critical data storage systems. In this webinar, Anubhuti Varshney, Senior Program Manager, talks about how Microsoft IT evaluated these features and created business intelligence solutions that support advanced analytics within databases for deeper data insights.
Hans Reutter, Principal Service Engineering Manager, and Elke Bregler, Principal Service Engineer, (both of Microsoft IT) share how Microsoft IT is optimizing its SAP implementations through cloud adoption and virtualization. They discuss cloud architecture, modern engineering processes, and agile methods that Microsoft IT uses to reduce risk to SAP business processes while optimizing costs, providing high service availability, and maintaining a resilient infrastructure.
Olav Opedal and Dong Yang discuss how Microsoft IT moved one of its most critical database environments to the cloud and describe the benefits the team experienced after migration. As a database administrator, Yang describes why moving to the cloud gave him more control over the entire database and reduced overhead, allowing him to focus on data modeling and architecture design.
Microsoft IT built a data analytics framework to consolidate data about our global data center infrastructure. Easier access to better data improved collaboration and helped us identify unused or underused servers, saving millions of dollars.
At Microsoft, we consistently look to cut costs and incorporate best-of-breed internally developed solutions. But we do license third-party software for some applications. Learn how Microsoft IT developed the infrastructure and processes necessary to effectively manage, control, and use third-party software licenses within our organization, throughout all stages of a software license lifecycle.
