Re: Prove it
I'm not bothered by any of that.  Obsessively watching a company's quarterly revenues may be relevant if you're a stockholder but -- absent a *major* flux or other significant event -- offers little to no real indication of the health of a company in the short or the long term.  (Indeed, relentless focus on keeping shareholders constantly happy has given IBM lots of trouble.)

Re: Prove it
@SachinEE: you are right, he has time to prove but the figures are already against him. The share price is already down 7% in 2015 and moreover MS has offered free upgrade to the new windows which will further affect the licensing revenue.

Re: Nice Hed
@Joe: You are not wrong. Nadella has had too many opportunities. He better now screw up the newer Microsoft offerings with the Windows 10 and the hololens.

Re: Prove it
@nomii: Indeed. Somehow I don't trust Nadella in what he's promising us. He simply isn't that good a CEO, but he has got time to prove it. Basically SoI is another fancy name for in-business IoT.

Re: Prove it
That has been the dilemma of Microsoft for quite some time now where they have preferred the intellect over affiliations. The trend is visible by their consistent downward direction whether it is sector where they were going good or where they were average.

Prove it
He is all talk!

When the mega corporation known as MSFT seeks to only hire the lowest, dumbest, cheapest, least paid and sometimes working-for-free engineers,

how can this ever be an intelligent company? Especiously since the CEO bought his way into the position with celebrity degrees and political affiliations and insists on hiring everyone from his village.

 

They should stick with what they known best. IT SUPPORT!

Nice Hed
I am not one of those rabid Microsoft critics, but if I was, the headline would be too good to resist making a "Great! It's about time they got some intelligence at that company!" joke.

So I will decline to make it.

Re: Finally, a little clarity
I do like the concept of Microsoft as an empowerment company - it is fitting, given all its teams are trying to do in developing products for businesses. It also leaves room for its hardware division, even though its strength is in software.

Re: The Empowerment Business
I agree, Curt. Microsoft is really making an effort to work with its competitors - not against them - in an effort to broaden their reach among consumers. The rollouts of Office for Mac and Android are key in this, I think. At one session today, an attendee even remarked that years ago, IBM would have never been at Convergence. Now it's a sponsor. MSFT has really turned around.
