The democratising force of software and digital technology, he said, will enable India's future innovators and entrepreneurs to pursue their dreams, Indian businesses to transform and seize the opportunities ahead and enable the talent and ingenuity of the human capital in India to thrive.

"In fact, to help drive this transformation we are bringing our marquee cloud services - Microsoft Azure, Dynamics and Office 365 - to local data centres in India to accelerate cloud innovation, connect every Indian and every Indian business to the world through our global hyper-scale cloud," he said.
