Microsoft in GLAM

Exhibitor Briefing
Ryan Gaspar, Microsoft, USA

During this lunch, we will provide additional context around Microsoft’s mission which is to “empower every person and organization on the planet to achieve more.” Specifically, we will discuss the ways in which Microsoft can help GLAMs address some of their biggest challenges by offering visibility to many of our existing platforms and services – including both our software/services for nonprofits program as well as our turnkey offerings around education. Also, we will be showcasing a few of our more recent projects which have helped partners deliver modern and relevant experiences for guests through more personal and intelligent technology.
