Brad said, “When I look at the way the world is adapting to the use of technology, I feel impressed. Look at the efforts put by various governments and the people especially those hit hard by the pandemic. They are trying as much as they can to stay at home but at the same time, work, run institutions and go about their various chores of the day such as shopping. All this is thanks to technology.” Mr. Smith added that it is not the common person and the policy makers alone are utilizing technology. “Companies as well as small and huge organizations are also embracing technology. Therefore, as the pandemic continues to go down, many people are coming out of this disease more educated that they were when it struck. Going forward, people would like to do their shopping from the comfort of their homes, converge for virtual meeting whenever they want to discuss policies, and we at the kitchen need to do more to increase cloud activity to carter for the surge in those that would want to use technology,” Microsoft head said.
