In his first direct address to partners since taking on the top role in February, Microsoft’s Chief Executive Satya Nadella outlined his new vision for productivity at the company’s Worldwide Partner Conference(WPC) 2014, pledging to make the Microsoft ecosystem as pervasive as possible.
“We are the company and the ecosystem that will build productivity experiences and platforms for the mobile-first, cloud first-world,” he said at the WPC in Washington, D.C. “We will reinvent productivity for the new generation. We will empower every individual and organization to achieve more. That is our singular mission.”
Microsoft is in a unique position because it can harmonize the needs of organizations, individuals and developers through its services and software. Microsoft will continue to refine its software and services, but look for ways they can be combined to offer more value and used across multiple devices, whatever their operating system, he said.
“We are going to have our experiences on all platforms. On every home screen out there, our aim is to have one or more Microsoft icons. Anyone can enter from any device into our ecosystem,” Nadella added.
