Microsoft’s Reinvention imperative for Success

Microsoft (MSFT) has recently been in the news for appointing the new CEO Satya Nadella, the third in the history of the tech giant. There were speculations that the company would appoint an outsider as the new boss before the appointment of the company veteran. The company wanted a leader who was familiar with the work culture of its business, and knew the company inside out. Microsoft found none better than Nadella.
Breaking the ice
The “big picture” is more about “reinvention”
The tech giant can’t rest on its laurels if it wants to taste future success. Instead on harping around the past success it would need to reinvent itself to drive the future outlook and growth. In addition to delighting its customers by driving future invention, Nadella also carries a vision of transforming Microsoft into a place “where people find deep meaning at work”.
Nadella’s efforts would be backed by Bill Gates (Trades, Portfolio). Gates has assumed the new role as the Founder and Technology Advisor of the company. By virtue of his position, he would spend more time on the company’s innovation and technical advancement activities.
So where does Microsoft stand?
Satya has relevant experience in this space. But the question remains if he would be able to successfully match his understanding with the way enterprise computing is evolving. All this would be a little clear with the passage of time.
