UBS, Maersk, Hershey, Fruit of the Loom and GEICO Find Success With Microsoft Technology

UBS, Maersk, Hershey, Fruit of the Loom and GEICO are among the companies that have embraced digital transformation, and Wednesday announced new solutions that use Microsoft technology. These solutions, announced and on display at today’s Microsoft Digital Difference event, will not only improve the speed and efficiency of how they do business, but also give them a significant digital edge over their competitors. Also, a Harvard Business Review Analytic Services report, sponsored by Microsoft Corp. and released Wednesday, finds that while 80 percent of business leaders think their industry will be positively disrupted by digital transformation within the next three years, fewer than half actually have a digital strategy in place. The companies at the event have done just that — putting strategies in place that use technology to move their businesses forward. These brands are building industry-leading solutions with Microsoft’s intelligent cloud, Internet of Things, mixed reality and artificial intelligence — and the results are tangible.
