On January 3, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella spoke about the future of cloud and artificial intelligence and the six imperatives that will propel technology-based economic growth in India. By 2025, the majority of applications will be built on cloud-native infrastructure, and nearly 90% of digital workloads will be deployed on cloud-native platforms, Nadella predicted. At the Microsoft Future Ready Leadership Summit in Mumbai, Nadella gave a speech. “Workloads on the cloud are 70–80% energy efficient. You use it when needed and protect yourself from the demand cycle. Around the world, we are investing in more than 200 data centers in 60+ areas. We are growing and establishing our fourth area in Hyderabad just in India” said Microsoft CEO. Nadella stated, “We want to make the cloud accessible worldwide.”
In order to generate data, he continued, every industrial, retail location, warehouse, and the hospital will need distributed computing. As a further illustration of what AI is actually capable of in terms of “unifying data and deploying AI models as platforms,” Nadella cited the lately well-known ChatGPT chatbot. “With AI, you can see a new thinking engine emerging. The displacement this reasoning engine might cause or its responsible application will be discussed. Those are valid points to examine. But it can improve everyone’s performance in whatever they do. Frontline workers could perform more knowledge work, while knowledge workers will have more creative freedom.”
It’s like having a co-pilot the entire time. According to him, AI will ultimately boost human productivity, creativity, and innovation across a variety of tasks. Nadella outlined how encouraging fusion teams could promote development. He claimed that magic would be produced if experienced software developers and front-line subject-matter experts collaborated to design these platforms. Digital transformation is in full swing when the frontline domain expert of one of the branches, retail locations, or warehouses participates in it.
He predicts that 70% of apps would be created with low or no programming by 2025. Re-energizing the workforce, he argued, is the fourth essential. He claims that managers and leaders have a neurosis about productivity, thinking that workers are not working hard enough when, in reality, they are just getting burned out. Data, in his opinion, can close the gap. “Everyone’s voice should be heard in meetings and when doing soft skills training. People value skill development, and this is essential for fostering loyalty, he said. The fifth imperative calls for increased collaboration in business processes. For instance, building digital twins to manage and enhance operations and efficiencies in the “industrial metaverse.”
Privacy and cybersecurity are the top priorities. Businesses must adopt a zero-trust philosophy, integrating cybersecurity into the infrastructure from the start rather than adding it later when a danger materializes.
