DXC’s MyWorkstyle, built on Microsoft 365, enables a luxury automotive manufacturer to improve collaboration, productivity and security. Meanwhile, DXC’s Managed Services for Microsoft Azure enables a healthcare provider to reduce care costs and improve operational efficiency using our unique healthcare IP. DXC’s retail solutions built on Dynamics 365 support an end-to-end view of the retail business to optimise decision making. As you will read in this issue of The Record, DXC uses over 30 years of partnership with Microsoft to deliver a broad portfolio of offerings across the Microsoft cloud platform, addressing a range of industries and use cases.” “The Norwegian market for electric cars is growing. In September 2018, almost 50% of new cars were electric and Norway is top in the world’s electric vehicle (EV) market, owning a quarter of UN EV sales. As the EV market develops, Meshcrafts’ Azure hosted EVs and EV charging platform, SmartCharge is also growing. With Norway aiming to reach 250,000 EVs by 2020, there will be over 1,000 charging stations on SmartCharge by the end of 2018. Microsoft Azure offers scalability for the platform and can therefore grow with it as Meshcrafts heads into the global EV market.” “Accelerating the customer experience is our top priority. Our cloud brokerage platform is built on the philosophy of keeping things simple for customers. Seamless automation of billing, provisioning and invoicing of all types of cloud services, saves the time and money of service providers and distributors worldwide. The key difference of our solution is the way we innovate on day-to-day activities via our state-of-the-art automations. We are currently working on a renovation of our control centre, aiming to put the customer first and improve their experience through new user interfaces, making their lives easier than ever before.”
