Microsoft Future Unleashed 2015

photo-1 “Mobile first, cloud first”, were the opening words of Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft at an event held in Mumbai. Future Unleashed, the said event, was organised by Microsoft on 5th and 6th of November 2015. The first of its kind in India, this future-centric technology conference opened up new avenues and sparked great ideas.
‘The Business Day’ or Day 1, was marked by special addresses given by Microsoft’s CEO Satya Nadella, Mahindra Group Chairman Anand Mahindra, Axis Bank head Shikha Sharma, Tata Starbucks CEO Avani Davda, Chairman of Microsoft India Bhaskar Pramanik, Mukund Rajan of Tata Sons, Chief Minister of Maharashtra Devendra Fadnavis & Telecom Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad.
“Small is the New Big. Social Mobile and Cloud is today’s new formula. Digitisation has enabled old economy to come back”, said Anand Mahendra. With tailored selection of round tables and briefings to explore key trends, identify opportunities and address common challenges, Day 1 was off to an inspiring start.
Discover, Decode, Transform was the idea behind Day 1 and so it transpired. COITOR IT Tech had the privilege of participating in an event of such significance. With trial rooms in stores becoming increasingly unsafe, COITOR discovered a solution to handle it. The concept of ‘Virtual Trial Rooms’, where one can try on clothes virtually, was formed. After continuous effort, the working model was decoded and put to practical use. It completely transformed the shopping experience of customers. Chosen as Microsoft’s partner early last year, COITOR has used augmented reality technology to provide a better user experience through their virtual trial rooms.
‘The Technical Day’ or Day 2, set aside for developers, business decision makers, IT implementers was fittingly headed by Scott Guthrie, Vice-President, Microsoft Cloud and Enterprise Group. The second day featured the best of technical content in Cloud, Mobility, Data & Analytics, IOT, Modern Web and more.
The Technical Day based on the theme of Connect, Learn and Innovate, witnessed the participation of a number of developers and IT professionals presenting their ideas or engaging in meaningful exchange of information.
COITOR’s technology was in line with the essence of Future Unleashed of empowering people and organisations across various sectors. The virtual trial room kiosk set up by COITOR at the event, saw an influx of visitors. With the facility of incorporating the virtual trial rooms into kiosks, mobile phones and e-commerce websites, it was widely acknowledged as a Gen Next Technology.

“Indian Talent along with Information Technology = India Tomorrow”, said our PM Modi at a NASSCOM event. We at COITOR, couldn’t agree more. Microsoft’s event opened new possibilities and we look forward to taking our technology to the next level.
