Cloud Optimizing Every Business
The transition to cloud computing has been talked about as one of the most profound shifts occurring in technology in decades. With the huge growth and broad range of computing devices increasingly available, we see a shift in “design point” to a world of connected devices and continuous services. In this talk, Satya Nadella, President, Server and Tools Business at Microsoft, will share what he learned running a global online service, Bing, and how these lessons are informing the direction of Microsoft’s cloud strategy.
Nadella is one of very few people in the world who can speak first-hand about running an extremely large-scale cloud computing business. Having previously led R&D for Microsoft’s Online Services Division, which includes Bing and MSN, Nadella has practical and deep experience with cloud both from a technical and business perspective. Today, Nadella brings these experiences to bear in his current role, which includes accountability for the overall business and technical vision, strategy, operations, engineering and marketing for Microsoft’s $17+ billion Server and Tools Business.
Join us to hear how Microsoft is focused on building a platform that spans public and private clouds to enable businesses to take advantage of this new design point.
