Microsoft Ignite 2023 guide: AI transformation and Microsoft Azure

AI transformation is a key theme at Microsoft Ignite 2023. Indeed, AI is revolutionizing our world, driving rapid innovation, and transforming how we engage with technology personally and professionally. To keep up, organizations are making significant investments to harness this technology and unlock new opportunities to thrive in the era of AI with Microsoft Azure and adjacent technologies.

For today’s organizations to thrive, understanding how to harness the power of AI is imperative. Gartner® predicts that by 2025, Generative AI will be a workforce partner for 90% of companies worldwide… Currently, 77% of CIOs and technology leaders worldwide are focused on opportunities of everyday AI.1

At this year’s Microsoft Ignite 2023, taking place in Seattle on November 14-17, attendees will explore the potential of AI to drive innovation and thrive in this new digital-centric era. As a Microsoft strategic partner, Dynatrace delivers answers and intelligent automation for cloud-native technologies and Azure. Read on to learn more about how Dynatrace delivers AI transformation to accelerate modern cloud strategies.

Exploring AI transformation at the verge of sustainability and edge computing

On the verge of a data-driven digital transformation 2.0, CIOs are under greater pressure to deliver real-world business value from transformation initiatives. Many organizations that were paralyzed by evaluating technology investments in the past are now speeding toward innovation and swift execution using cloud-native technologies and Microsoft Azure to meet strategic business goals. In this time of rapid change, teams are also under greater scrutiny to maximize IT investments in a new wave of sustainable readiness. Microsoft defines sustainability as having a strong digital foundation to track and manage data and adopt data-driven solutions to accelerate progress and reduce an organization’s carbon footprint.

Furthermore, an accelerating digital-centric economy pushes us closer to the edge—processing client data as close to the originating source as possible. The surge of the internet of things (IoT) has led to the exponential growth of applications and data processing at the edge. For many teams, this requires a new approach to managing and processing data across different environments, which can prove resource-intensive and cost-prohibitive. However, with a strategic approach, teams can harness real-time data to make agile, informed decisions and meet key business goals.

AI transformation accelerates innovation for your Azure cloud strategy

As our digital-centric world accelerates, the focus at Dynatrace is on AI and AIOps to ensure that Azure users can accelerate innovation and maximize automation as IT environments evolve. The rapid pace and scale of innovation in the cloud create the need for a unified observability and security strategy.

Migrating to the Cloud is an evolution that requires teams to re-evaluate and optimize continuously to enable short and long-term success. At Dynatrace, we’re deeply committed to innovating with Microsoft and ensuring the delivery of exceptional user experiences — built on deep technical backend integrations to support customers’ evolving needs.
