Microsoft chooses its next ceo, the cloud and enterprise head mr. satya nadella
Microsoft has officially announced its ceo mr. Satya Nadella successor to Steve Ballmer. nadella is third CEO in the company's history, he most recently has led as the head of cloud and enterprise space in microsoft arena. With 22 years spent in the company, Nadella was the most sought after internal choice by the board members .The board members, including founder Bill Gates himself, believe that he's just the man to lead Microsoft into the future endeavors and will help microsoft lead its path of success to acme like never before. His successful pushing of platform agnostic Office 365, in addition to development of both consumer and enterprise cloud solutions, which has made microsoft hold its roots in the IT world beyond windows and Office struggle in the PC world.
The naming of Satya as Microsoft CEO represents a moment of pride for all indians . While Gates ultimately proved to have solid business instincts in him-selves, he was at heart of computer nerd and geek and much better. on the 2nd mr. Ballmer, was a student of economics and an MBA drop out who managed to take microsoft were it is today. for now the 3rd ceo since Microsoft started Satya received degrees in electrical engineering and computer science before eventually moving on to the University of Chicago's MBA program.
As part of the transition in senior executives in Microsoft,the founder Bill Gates will be returning to a big and better role at Microsoft as Technology Advisor, though,i think will not be involved in day-to-day decision of company. As part of that move, John Thompson (former Symantec CEO and lead independent director of the board at Microsoft) will be taking over as chairman at the board.
According to Gates, it was Satya himself who asked him to "step up" his presence at the company and become more involved with guiding the various product groups. Now the goal for both the techies would be to overcome the obvious challenges facing the technology stalwart. If we're feeling generous, we'd call Windows Phone a modest success till now which will make its vibes giant and huge in the coming years. And while 365 is certainly not going anywhere, it's still playing to catch up with giants of the cloud productivity space, Google.
But as we can see in the most recent earnings reports of company we could clearly guess that Microsoft is slowly becoming the device and services centric giant as it hopes to be.
Below is a latest video message from founder Bill Gates, as well as Satya's first interview as CEO to see their future prospects about microsoft.
