11: Bjoern Hirtenjohann from Microsoft on technology and culture
Bjoern Hirtenjohann is the Public Sector CTO for Microsoft. He explains how Microsoft have accelerated the move to the cloud computing for clients as a result of Covid. He also puts to rest the nervousness that people have around technology taking over our lives or security issues with the cloud, and explains what Microsoft are doing to enhance the way we live and work. He explains how technology can improve workplace culture, giving more freedom to colleagues to change processes.
Bjoern has made me think more about how we use technology and specifically, how we make time to work out how we use it wisely. We hear so much scaremongering around AI and social media, yet Microsoft are pushing boundaries of how we can use it to enhance the way we live and work and solve social and business problems. I’m determined to put aside time each week to explore how I use technology to improve the way I work.
How do you make time to maximise the use of technology?
