Since becoming the CEO of one of the most powerful companies in the world, Satya Nadella has surely been in the spotlight. The chief executive of Microsoft claimed that the products of the famous company actually manage to empower others in their work and in their personal lives.
Last week, Nadella attended a meeting with a small group of journalists and talked about the future of the tech giant. “To me that’s the broadest definition of productivity, which is for us to empower individuals and organizations to be able to make things happen and get stuff done,” he said. “That to me is what we need to aspire to, and everything we do needs to add up to it.”
Nadella claimed that what makes Microsoft stand apart from the competition actually is the focus of the famous company on productivity. Nadella also talked about Apple and Google. “To me Apple’s very, very clear, and, in fact, I think Tim Cook did a great job of even describing that very recently where he said they sell devices,” he claimed.
When it comes to Google, the CEO of Microsoft actually claimed that it is all about data and advertising, ‘it is about serving you ads in a tasteful way, and they’ve done a great job of that business.” Nadella went on to say that for Microsoft it is all about creating the products that empower others. So, productivity is the center of everything for the tech giant.
Nadella might have some important plans for the future and it seems that the company thinks big. Last week, Microsoft decided to increase the usability of Office on mobile devices. It announced free versions for the iPad, iPhone and Android tablets.
Nadella recently made an appearance at the Future Decoded event in London and praised national efforts to get more British children interested in science and technology. Microsoft’s CEO caused controversy when he claimed that women should not ask for pay rise, but only trust the system. He later apologized and said that he believes in equal pay and women should ask for pay rises where they feel they deserve it.
