Finishing first with Renault Sports Formula One and Dynamics 365

To monitor every aspect of performance, a Renault Sports Formula One race car is outfitted with over 200 sensors that generate more than 35 billion data points over a typical race weekend. Since two or more sensors can be matched to form around 20,000 different virtual channels, cars relay an enormous volume of data back to the Renault Sports team during races and tests. By pairing Azure-based Dynamics 365 for Operations with Microsoft Power BI, the Renault Sports team can bring up and track this data in real time, enabling them to make exact modifications and adjustments at lightning speed to squeeze more performance out of the car. Watch this short video to see how the Renault Sports Formula One team capitalizes on the features of Dynamics 365 for Operations and Microsoft Azure to make its cars faster than ever and reach the finish line first.

The 4 defining characteristics of effective digital workspaces

Not so long ago, it was believed that for teams to be productive, they required long hours confined in a physical office space with constant face-to-face interaction. To be fair, given the primitive state of digital collaboration tools at the time—which was pretty much limited to emails—there wasn’t really a solid alternative to this scheme, so companies worked with what they had.

Today, digitalization has made it possible for several people to seamlessly work together while being halfway across the world from each other. Exponential advancements in virtual workspaces have not only enabled teams to work as well as they did when they spent all day in the office, but have also proven that people are actually more productive the less they have to deal with alienating cubicles and two-way trips along traffic-congested highways.

Not all digital workspaces have been equally effective, however. Yet decades of iterating and optimizing have finally given us a solid idea of the most important characteristics these spaces must have to reach their full potential. So what are they? Read this infographic to find out.

5 reasons to empower governments with digital transformation

Delivering the best services possible to citizens while managing tight budgets is an everyday struggle for public institutions. Although this is also true for many privately owned companies, a slight delay or inefficiency in public services can spell disaster for entire families. Yet keeping up with digital transformation can be difficult for such institutions thanks to nightmarishly long bureaucratic processes and archaically old existing architectures. This means that once a digital strategy gets approved, there’s little to no room to get things wrong. When thing do go the right way, however, governments and public institutions are empowered with unparalleled efficiency that translates into a better quality of life for all citizens.

In this infographic, you’ll learn how digital transformation strategies can greatly improve the effectiveness of public services and significantly enhance taxpayers’ overall perception of the institutions that implement them.
