Meet Satya Nadella - Third CEO of Microsoft

It's official that former vice president of Microsoft’s Cloud and Enterprise group Satya Nadella is elected as CEO of Microsoft, succeeding Steve Ballmar.

When Steve Ballmar announced his retirement as CEO of Microsoft, each MS developer was thinking who will be the next? The Nokia-Microsoft deal was referring Stephen Elop could be next CEO but secret is revealed.

Satya has great India connection. He was born in Hyderabad. He is alma mater of Manipal Institute of Technology. He joined Microsoft 22 years ago. #SatyaNadella becomes trending topic on Twitter within few minutes after press release regarding the next CEO. He has worked for many departments in Microsoft, like
  • President of the Server & Tools
  • Senior Vice President of Research and Development for the Online Services Division
  • Vice President of the Microsoft Business Division
  • Corporate Vice President of Microsoft Business Solutions and Search & Advertising Platform Group
  • Vice president of Microsoft’s Cloud and Enterprise group
Steve Ballmar is a more of marketing guy but Satya is more of "techie" guy. He has many challenges to crack. Biggest challenge is to increase market share of Windows 8.1, Windows Phone 8 and Surface tablets. We can now expect Windows Phone 8.1's keynote from himself. Windows Azure is being managed under him so we are seeing Azure has gain awesome momentum. So we are hoping such momentum in the consumer products also.
