Online meetings have been at the heart of work’s global transformation this past year. Long before the pandemic, they played a crucial role for distributed teams but now they’ve become the glue that holds the workday together for countless teams and organisations that used to share a physical workplace.

Microsoft also announced plans to skill a further 1 million Malaysians by end of 2023 to help create economic opportunities for people and businesses in the digital era. Microsoft also will help form the MyDigital Alliance Leadership Council to collaborate on cloud-first and digital-native policy recommendations.
