Microsoft 365

For the Microsoft 365 productivity suite—which includes Office 365, Windows 10 and device management—Nadella said one of the major opportunities is around the Microsoft Graph. The Microsoft Graph brings together data signals from sources such as email, calendar, Teams chats and documents, enabling AI technologies to generate insights from the data.

As a result of the widespread shift to Office 365, "a very rich database gets created—a database that is about people [and] their relationships with other people," Nadella said. "Their artifacts—whether it's their schedules, documents, projects—all of that is available as a first-class database structure for you."

Ultimately, "it's exciting to see even how some ISVs are using the Microsoft Graph," Nadella said, pointing to announcements at Build 2019 including the general availability of Microsoft Graph data connect solution. Microsoft Graph data connect provides customers with a way to combine their productivity data with their business data—allowing big-data/analytics applications to gain managed access to the productivity data, enabling even deeper insights for organizations. "We think of this as a very rich ecosystem that's developing," Nadella said.
