Central Florida may be at the forefront of what Microsoft CEO calls digital transformation


When Microsoft Corp. CEO Satya Nadella addressed hundreds of people at the Orange County Convention Center on Sept. 25, it may have reminded some business leaders and professionals about the track Central Florida is on to capitalize on an emerging tech sector.

Focusing on artificial intelligence, mixed reality and sensors, Nadella said those forms of technology will touch on every single industry in a phrase coined as the digital transformation.

“As we increase our business, the need for business automation is increasing,” Nadella said at the Orange County Convention Center where the Microsoft Ignite conference — a showcase of Microsoft products and services — was held.
