How are you using (or would like to use) generative AI to create the modern workplace?

Generative AI has the potential to open new avenues for improving the user experience and for creating business advantages. It promises to change the way many people work, from how software is developed to how text is written and summarized. Large language models, like Chat GPT, can help you remove barriers along your cloud transformation journey.

From cost reduction and helping to solve tech debt problems to better understanding app dependencies and accelerating the cloud journey, hear how tech leaders today are leveraging generative AI to reap the benefits of their tech investments more quickly.

Join Microsoft & KPMG, and a select group or thought leaders to discuss cost reduction and helping to solve tech debt problems to better understanding app dependencies and accelerating the cloud journey.
