On the Office blog, Microsoft details how Willis Towers Watson (WTW) benefited by using Office 365. WTW operates worldwide in more than 140 countries with 40,000 employees. Eoghan Doyle, WTW’s global head of Infrastructure and Operations, describes how the use of Microsoft cloud technologies and services helped digitally transform WTW into a leading global risk management firm:

“Willis Towers Watson drives business performance for our clients by helping them unlock potential. We aim to do the same for our global workforce.
