VRtical Room
Opening Keynote

Our industry, and indeed the world, is at an incredibly exciting technology inflection point. The virtually limitless computing power of the cloud combined with increasingly intelligent and perceptive devices at the edge of the network create possibilities we could only have dreamed of just a few years ago. When the intelligent cloud and intelligent edge are imbued with mixed reality and artificial intelligence, we have a framework for achieving amazing things and empowering even more people. Enabling intelligent cloud and intelligent edge solutions requires a new class of distributed, connected applications that will deliver break-through business outcomes. Now all the pieces are coming together.

2019 represents an important milestone for Microsoft. From cutting-edge hardware design to mixed reality-infused cloud services, latest announcements represent the collective work of many teams. And none of this would be possible without our passionate community of customers, partners and developers. It is my privilege to introduce you to HoloLens 2 and all the announcements we made during MWC Barcelona.
