This past year has been unlike any other, and developers have been critical to helping businesses in every industry and people everywhere respond and adapt to the challenges of a global pandemic. Developers have never been more important to the world – and it is increasingly clear that they are the next generation of digital creators.
As a company built by developers and for developers, our goal at Microsoft is to provide them with the agility to address the real-world needs of their customers. Developers and their teams need best-in-class tools and services that help them reduce the time it takes to go from an idea to value. Our ambition is to be the platform for platform creators and empower developers to build what comes next.
Microsoft has the richest developer tools in the world with the Visual Studio family, GitHub, and .NET. The Microsoft Cloud includes offerings such as Azure, Microsoft 365, Dynamics 365 and Power Platform, as well as our end-to-end security, identity and access management solutions. With the Microsoft Cloud, we have an incredibly comprehensive platform that developers can use to build apps and solutions to reach any person on the planet. We build products with developers in mind, which enables us to partner with our customers in their journey to support and accelerate developer velocity.
Over 95% of the world’s largest companies are running their businesses on the Microsoft Cloud today. As industries are being stretched in new ways, public cloud adoption is a key ingredient to enable this type of essential transformation. Our goal with the Microsoft Cloud is to help our customers explore the art of the possible. Deeply understanding the unique experience of our customers, and learning key lessons from digital leaders on how they are reinventing the value they drive through building applications, is a fundamental part of our continued effort to recognize how organizations can accelerate business performance.
Throughout the Microsoft Build 2021 event, many of our customers will share how they are digitally transforming and reimagining how they engage with their employees and customers with the Microsoft Cloud.
