Its great to see MSFT involved in So many Interesting Areas today.
I personally have little doubt that Health Technology (particularly in Preventative Healthcare) is going to be the next big thing going ahead.

Its great to see MSFT work very,very hard to gain a degree of Traction in this space.

You know what would help them more?

If they would just tie up with Some Hospital/Insurance Providers to ensure better Delivery of their existing services.

Now that would definitely do the trick!

Docker also has enormous Potential Going ahead.

That's for sure.

Preventive health-care technology is what we would like to see in the medical industry. Its great if Microsoft could spend some money and effort on this.

shakeeb,

Absolutely right!

Preventative Healthcare alongwith Gene Theraphy will absolutely be the Key to the Future of Healthcare as Human Population continues to get Older and We Live Longer Lives.

That much is definitely a Given,

There is no way any Government Globally can sustain over 30% of its Population which is constantly seriously sick.

Wearable Technology alongwith IoT is most definitely the Future of Most Devices today.

Its a different matter if this Technology will evolve at the pace that is slow enough to satisfy human and Privacy concerns going ahead.

On the right path
Great Article Kelly,

I think this is more evidence that Microsoft has learned from past mistakes and it's definitly on the right track.

By both embracing more and more the usage of apps, and providing a more integrated ecosystem is definitly driving to the goal....and I trully hope it gets there.

From an enterprise side, I know many who would welcome being able to hope on a conference call with one swipe (versus having to dial a bridge number, then a pin, then a passcode, and god forbide if a moderator code is also required)

THe Start Menu
If Microsoft is providing a lot more searching capabilities from the start menu, it's definitly hitting the nail on the head.

Any windows user will also go to the start menu as the first step for most task, so not only does it make sense, it also allows for a more focused effort.

The same way we use CTRL+F for searching in a web site, this is the same type of experience that Microsoft can easilly deliver

@Ashu001,

You have a good point,

I think what might happen is that once a robust product is made available, providers will adopt it so that it's easilly accessible. This would be mainly driven by demand for it (which would come from those that consume it)

Re: THe Start Menu
@mejic - initially when Microsoft introduced windows 8 many the a problem with the start menu. However today we see it being very useful.
