With the discovery of the Higgs boson, particle physics entered a new era. The LHC successfully completed operations at 13 TeV center-of-mass energy. Data collected by the CMS experiment allow measurements of different properties of the Higgs boson, albeit limited in precision. At the same time, a search for physics beyond the standard model remains the top priority of the CMS physics program. The LHC and CMS are preparing for major upgrades that will increase data sample by an order of magnitude to both improve the precision of measurements of the Higgs boson and to further extend the sensitivity reach for new phenomena. In this talk, I will review some
of the recent results from CMS on Higgs measurements and searches for new phenomena, and will discuss ideas on what can be achieved in the long term program to advance our understanding of the fabric of nature.
