Microsoft has quietly been adding to - and innovating - defence software applications on a large scale, both in dismounted soldier systems as well as in HQ software architectures. We had a chance to sit down with Wayne Phillips, Director of Microsoft Defence Solutions, to discuss how he thinks they are doing in this sector. We talk about an approach to defence needs that resides in 'applying core technologies to a defence base'. Supporting infrastructure (as well as front line activities) is a process that can be taken from the private sector and applied in defence, which is what Microsoft is endeavouring to do. But this means more rigorous workloads, larger work loads, and significantly reduced margins of error.
