How Microsoft assisted to bring rival companies together during the pandemic

During the course of the pandemic, there have been days when there was a drastic need for ventilators each day. To cater to the merging needs of the pandemic, we have seen many rival companies come together while their higher management personnel remained cool-headed under crises.

Companies like Ford, BAE, McLaren, Unilever, GKN Aerospace, Rolls-Royce, and Airbus came together to integrate their technology and expertise together to cater for the merging needs of making ventilators for the NHS.

For better collaboration amongst the rival companies, Microsoft Teams has played its part during this pandemic. According to Leila Martine, Product Marketing Director for Mixed Reality at Microsoft, apart from Teams other Microsoft Technologies utilized for building ventilators were the Azure cloud platform, Microsoft HoloLens, Dynamics 365 and Power BI to the consortium.”

Each tool had a set of features to cater to fast-paced communication including hands-free video-calls, virtual screens, live streaming while approaching ventilator experts from around the world.

In all these months during the pandemic, Communication and better decision making was the key to achieve accurate targets.
