“I think the biggest thing for me is being able to help people.” – Laurent Pierre Jr.
In this episode of OneTAKE Live, join host Ian Barkin as he discusses customer experiences, the impact of COVID-19, and the revolutionary flexibility of the cloud with Microsoft Azure CXP General Manager Laurent Pierre Jr.
With distancing still keeping many of us out of the office, collaborating in the age of COVID-19 can be a challenge, but what if it didn’t have to be? What if you could rapidly deploy entire virtual centers of operation in areas with little more than an internet connection? That’s the power of the cloud — and companies everywhere are taking note.
To find out just how influential the cloud is, and how it’s aided businesses post–COVID-19, we asked Pierre, who said that the real game-changing power of the cloud is its ability to create a connected culture of collaboration. “We’ve seen something that would normally take five to six years to do; we’ve done it in maybe two to three months,” he said. “And it’s not just a soundbite. It’s true. In the eight months I’ve been here, I’ve witnessed Microsoft collaborate across the globe.”
Formerly working as a program director for IBM, Pierre is no stranger to revolutionary tech. In his current role, he works to strategically lead a global team delivering world-class Microsoft Azure support through innovative products, scalable engineering systems, and data-driven decision-making.
