What's new at Microsoft?
Tuesday - 7/8/2014, 8:09pm EDT
July 8, 2014 -- For most federal information technology professionals, Microsoft is associated with proprietary, license-based software.
Today's interview will disrupt that convenient classification.
Susie Adams, the chief technology officer for Microsoft Federal, visited Federal News Radio to talk about a wide range of topics that involve looking at Microsoft with a new set of eyes.
During the interview, Adams elaborated on everything from Windows Azure Government Cloud, Hadoop on the Microsoft cloud platform, Azure Machine Learning, and even Nokia!
We all know that many are wary of taking advantage of the benefits that accrue to cloud users because of security concerns.
New offerings from Microsoft are being stress tested that allow for both physical and logical isolation.
This responds to security concerns from federal technology folks.
Adams quoted the new CEO of Microsoft, Sata Nadella, when he said "Microsoft is a cross platform company".
This is best illustrated by an open source database like MongoDB now running on the Microsoft cloud platform.
Susie Adams reviews ways that this new approach from Microsoft can assist in executing strategic goals from agencies.
The wide ranging conversation even mentioned Microsoft's acquisition of Nokia and the Microsoft Partner's Conference coming to town in August.
