Organizations that build their own digital capability will recover faster and emerge from this crisis stronger,” said Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft. “We are the only company with an integrated, modern technology stack – powered by cloud and AI and underpinned by security and compliance – to help every organization transform and reimagine how they meet customer needs."
