Gitex 2019: Microsoft demonstrates 'Digital Horse' tech solution
This year’s stand showcases the ‘Digital Horse’, a collaborative project between Microsoft and its partners to promote the wellbeing of horses and increase their lifespan.

Microsoft is showcasing a host of technologies this week at Gitex Technology Week 2019 in Dubai.

The Microsoft experience is split across four zones – covering data centres, artificial intelligence, the modern workplace and security.

This year’s stand showcases the ‘Digital Horse’, a collaborative project between Microsoft and its partners to promote the wellbeing of horses and increase their lifespan.

Built on innovations such as machine learning, computer vision, IoT and augmented reality – the ‘Digital Horse’ creates an ecosystem that allows for round-the-clock monitoring of animals – from health and nutrition, to sleeping and training.

Datacenter Zone

The Datacenter Zone tells the story of Microsoft’s recently launched UAE cloud regions that bring productivity, security, intelligent platforms and services to Middle East customers.

The zone highlights how the firm’s data centres in Abu Dhabi and Dubai are enabling organisations to scale up their capabilities through enterprise grade performance, reliability, security and privacy in the cloud.

AI Zone

The AI Zone showcases the intelligent frameworks within the Microsoft Cloud.

The zone demonstrates technologies such as object, face and emotion detection, knowledge mining, image classification and text recognition.

Modern Workplace and Intelligent Security Zone

The modern workplace zone delves into a range of devices and solutions built for today’s office, such as the Microsoft Surface family, Windows 10, Office 365 and Microsoft Teams.

The Intelligent Security Zone focuses on Microsoft’s Threat Protection and how the company’s cloud-powered, intelligent security solutions help organisations protect their employees and their entire digital estate from malicious actors.

Partners Zone

Microsoft is hosting 32 regional partners at its Gitex stand.

Partners include Alpha Data, Informatica, Link Datacenter, Logicom, Spectrum Networks, Trend Micro, VeriPark and Accenture.

“Our presence at Gitex is a reflection of our absolute commitment to the country and its national agenda,” said Sayed Hashish, general manager, Microsoft UAE.

“We’ve just completed the successful launch of our UAE cloud data centres that are already empowering several organisations across the country and the Middle East to achieve more. “
