DXC and Microsoft are joining forces to deliver a solution and suite of services that will help companies to empower their employees with a modern workplace experience and to ensure customers’ employees can seamlessly and securely work anytime, anywhere, and on any device.
Called DXC MyWorkStyle™, DXC brings the largest install base of workplace customers and the blueprint for the modern workplace experience. As part of the collaboration, Microsoft and DXC will work together to co-develop and deliver the solution, leveraging artificial intelligence and machine learning from millions of data points to create a modern workplace experience.
DXC and Microsoft will bring together leading technology, engineering talent and architects to enhance the DXC MyWorkStyle platform. The platform will leverage Microsoft’s suite of services including Microsoft 365 and Teams, and Dynamics 365 and Power Platform.
Together, our goal is to bring customers a next level employee experience and to unlock further value in the workplace.
