Microsoft’s hunt for a new CEO has finally come to a close. Satya Nadella, previously head of Cloud and Enterprise and having spent two decades at the company has now officially risen to the rank of CEO. Nadella’s background in technology contrasts former CEO Steve Ballmer’s business centric experience and has more in common with founder Bill Gates. The Azure platform built under Nadella’s guidance now powers; Bing, Skype and Xbox LIVE, proving his ability to grow successful products within Microsoft in a modern Cloud world. This is an exciting time for the company as it transitions more so into a devices & services company, and with Nadella at the helm Microsoft is in an ideal position to raise to success.
