Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella today spoke at the Gartner Symposium ITxpo and he discussed about Windows 10, Office 365, Azure and more. He said that Windows has gone through rearchitecture to one core Windows which can anywhere. He highlighted that Windows can run from sensors to any kind of devices. He said that it is an important step from Microsoft as opposed to just another release after Windows 8.
“Windows 10 is a very important step for us. It’s the first step in a new generation of Windows as opposed to just another release after Windows 8. General purpose computing is going to run on 200 plus billion sensors. We’ve architected Windows where it can run on everything.”
“The Internet of Things end points will need an operating system that’s manageable and secure. I feel Windows will be a fantastic operating system to run on the edge,” said Nadella. Another key point will be taking that OS and the data end point and offloading into Azure for predictive analytics. “That’s really our IoT strategy,” said Nadella. “We’re in IoT today. Listening to you today makes me want to go back and put my marketing department on it.”
Regarding Microsoft position in the cloud, he said that Office 365 is the key API from Microsoft. Office extensibility and data has led to billions of identity transactions in Azure Active Directory.
