Welcome to our round-up of the top news in the CX space over the last seven days.

Microsoft Launches a Digital Contact Center Platform

Microsoft has announced a CCaaS solution that combines Microsoft Teams, Dynamics 365, Power, Azure, and Nuance AI capabilities.

Charles Lamanna, Corporate Vice President, Business Applications and Platform at Microsoft, wrote in a blog post:

Contact center tasks and workflows ranging in complexity from routine conversations to sophisticated transactions can easily be automated using no-code, low-code, or pro-code experiences.

Microsoft hopes to “drive infrastructure simplicity, flexibility, and innovation” while removing tricky IT integrations.
