Microsoft showcases latest solutions in Kuwait
Kuwait, February 4, 2014
Microsoft Kuwait introduced its latest innovative solutions at the Open Door 2014 event held recently, as part of the company’s transformation to a ‘Devices and Services’ organisation.
The event included interactive sessions and demonstration stations in which Microsoft professionals provided insights into the ways in which Microsoft has been empowering businesses, educators, governments and individuals to make the most out of their key activities.
Open Door Kuwait was sponsored by its partners Dell, Zajil, Diyar United Company and Infocenter.
The demonstration of the highly anticipated Windows 8.1 update was one of the main attractions during the event, which highlighted the new features on a range of the latest Windows devices allowing users to rediscover cloud connectivity through the One Drive and the updated Windows Store.
“Promoting the true spirit of personalization, Windows 8.1 advances the vision set forward with Windows 8 and delivers the experiences that people look for in the latest PCs, tablets and other devices to run their favourite modern apps and experience exclusive cloud-connected services,” the company said.
Microsoft also highlighted the recently acquired Yammer, an enterprise social network that brings together people, conversations, content, and business data in a single location.
Over 20,000 organizations around the world are using Yammer to connect with co-workers, collaborate with team members and make an impact in their workplaces, it said.
Speaking at a press conference during the Open Door, Charles Nahas, general manager, Microsoft Kuwait, said: “Open Door is a unique platform to experience all the latest innovation from around the world. The world of IT is evolving at a rapid pace and we continue to see development dominated by four main megatrends: mobility, cloud, big data and social networking. During Open Door, we presented solutions that are in-line with these megatrends, enabling businesses and governments to carry out activities that support their objectives. At Microsoft, we are committed to empowering businesses and governments through technology innovation, making enhanced productivity and competitiveness possible.” –TradeArabia News Service
