About the Research
“I Wish” was a campaign conducted by GSX Solutions that approached IT professionals to voice the types of new solutions and improvements they would love to see for Microsoft applications. The research was conducted using several channels, including social networks, direct customer feedback and insights gathered at major Microsoft events across the world. Nearly 1,000 wishes were collected in the United States, Europe and Asia.
The results have been compelling and have presented a clear understanding of what the Microsoft community wants and needs.
The “I Wish” campaign was inspired by the "I Wish This Was" program which began in New Orleans in November 2010 to help rebuild the city after Hurricane Katrina.
