For educators, digital transformation isn’t just students having access to computers and googling information. It’s introducing young people to the increasingly advanced technological capabilities that surround them—and will be a part of their working future.
To kick off our video series, we go to New South Wales, Australia, where technology is shaping the ways students learn and teachers teach. With Microsoft support, over 400,000 devices can be supported within one organization. It’s geographically encompassing and developed for anytime-anywhere teaching and learning. It saves users time and money. Have a look!

As scientific research becomes more and more complex, scientists need new, scalable ways to store and analyze ever-larger troves of data. They also need unprecedented amounts of raw computing power to process the data they obtain and deliver timely results that enable projects to stay on track and within budget. To ensure that their research adheres to these restraints, modern-day scientists need to increase efficiency via automation and other approaches whenever they can, wherever they can. Artificial intelligence (AI) and cloud technology give scientists the tools they need to advance research faster than ever before, get results quicker, and achieve scientific breakthroughs like never before.
In this video, you’ll learn how researchers at Australian National University (ANU) are using Microsoft Azure to dramatically shorten the amount of time they spend on data analysis, enabling faster publication of their cutting-edge genome research.
For local governments, digital transformation isn’t just a means of optimizing their daily operations or becoming more efficient—it’s also about potentially saving and improving the lives of thousands (even millions) of citizens. In other words, it’s about leveraging accurate, predictable data to be prepared for events such as an increase in population or a natural disaster.
Thankfully, the increased availability of digital tools and a growing integration between devices and systems is bringing cities closer than ever to this reality. In this video, you’ll learn about the City of Houston, Texas’ vision for becoming an interconnected hub for technological advancement and innovation, thanks to the tools provided by always-on digital technology.
It’s time to go grocery shopping: you’ve built your list—a critical requirement and pro move—and written down everything you need. Before digital transformation, you simply got into your car and drove to the supermarket of choice. But what was that choice based upon? Distance, price, product selection? Most likely it was a combination of the three, but rarely was it the uniqueness of your experience with the store’s brand.
In other words, if two supermarkets offered the same price ranges, product selections, and were right next to each other, most people wouldn’t mind shopping at one or the other. This was an obvious problem for grocery stores. But without digital, the dynamics of grocery shopping were pretty much set in stone.
In this video, you’ll see how Kroger—the United States’ largest supermarket by revenue and the second-largest general retailer—embraced digital transformation, and learn about their vision for using the tools available to offer new services and experiences to their customers.
If you’re reading this, then chances are that getting easy access to clean, running water isn’t an issue for you. But for around 43 percent of the world’s total population, this simply is not the case. For them, obtaining the drinkable water they need to sustain their families requires hard work and commitment.
To make matters even more critical, most of them live in rural areas in which farming is their main source of income. This means that any available water must be carefully distributed between their crops and family, an exhausting situation that can take all day just to keep a small patch of land in farmable condition.
Such is the case for Monica, a Kenyan farmer who every day must assume the roles of mother of four, farmer, merchant, and housekeeper just to make ends meet. In this video, you’ll learn how she managed her dwindling water supply to keep her farm yielding, family fed, and trade at the local market—a situation that was soon to improve dramatically thanks to modern technology.
With six breweries and 1500 pubs, Marston’s needed help to learn as much as possible about their customers’ evolving tastes. In this video, the company’s heads of technology development and marketing talk about the benefits of the Microsoft suite of intelligent apps that communicate with one another to get the most out of collected data.
