“mobile-first, cloud-first world” | finally a new Microsoft

Its been some time (decades?) since I had anything positive to say about Microsoft. Nadella in a few short weeks is setting the tone and direction that will change the company.  The iPad app delivered on a non Microsft OS this week was a big deal.  Now this mobile-first, cloud-first world statement is a sharp right turn away from a Microsoft centric world.

Today marks the start of another big week for Microsoft as we gear up for the Build conference in San Francisco. We continue to push on the momentum from last week’s news about how we will thrive and grow in a mobile-first, cloud-first world, as shown by the great Office apps for iOS, rich new APIs for developers and our new Enterprise Mobility Suite.

The new organisation reflects Cloud, Gaming, and Devices.  It remains to be seen if that works but it is a clear strategy that is reflective of the dynamic changes in technology during the last 5 – 7 years.  I say good luck to Nadella.
