"The biggest impact of the Corona pandemic is probably the ability to collaborate and manage digital communications. These are processes that have already begun before and not necessarily entirely new processes, but adopting technologies that would have taken a decade probably - compressed at the beginning of a year or a year and a half," says James Phillips, President of Microsoft's Digital Transformation Platform Group, in a video call with James Spiro of CTech.


The interview with Phillips touches on the impact of the pandemic on business, technology, and Microsoft's own response to the challenges took place ahead of Calcalist's Tech TLV conference on November 2.


According to Phillips, the change in the form of work has affected every field. "It's hard to think of any field that has not been affected by the coronavirus, its domino effect on the global economy is just huge,” he said.
