Question 1- What according to you are some of the top Microsoft technology trends to watch out for in 2022?

Low-code software development and collaboration are two of the main trends Microsoft is focusing on. Of course, I'm referring to Microsoft 365, which is continually updated with new features and services, including Viva, Microsoft's employee experiences suite. In addition, the Power Platform continues to grow, adding new services month after month.

Question 2: What are some opportunities you would be looking at this year?

On the application side, I'm noticing a real explosion in demand for Power Platform applications, and the opportunity to extend the Microsoft Viva platform on the collaboration side.

Question 3: Would you like to share some tips on Microsoft 365 implementation?

Take advantage of Microsoft Viva! The best way to facilitate collaboration in Microsoft 365 is not only in business processes but also in support of the end user. To put it another way, provide a platform that is user-centric.

Question 4: What is the potential for Microsoft Partners in Italy?

With Microsoft being the leader in collaboration and no-code/low-code platforms, the potential for partner companies is even more pronounced. Microsoft's services present partners with two key factors for growth: extensibility and integration.

Question 5: How can we leverage Microsoft 365 and Power Apps for improved collaboration?

Many companies depend on Microsoft 365 for enterprise collaboration, and Power Apps lets you create applications in a low-code mode that can be seamlessly integrated into Microsoft 365, thanks to the countless connectors. With these platforms, developing departmental applications for business processes has become much simpler and faster.
