The Future of Business Applications and The Power of Data and Analytics

Data is like gold in today’s world, and for James Phillips, the President of Business Applications at Microsoft, data is the one true north he will follow until the end.

At Microsoft, James leads a global team of thousands of developers who are using data to build all of Microsoft’s business operations and then operate the infrastructure underneath them. And the applications that the Microsoft team has built have helped some of the largest companies in the world put the pedal to the metal when it comes to digital transformation.

On this episode of Future of Tech, James details how the Microsoft Dynamics 365 family of products was built to operate together, and what kind of agility and options the Power Platform gives app developers to turn their business applications into key components of the company. James also defines what a modern application is to a business today, and he explains why data is the foundation upon which all business decisions and applications should be built. Enjoy!
