Microsoft Loves It Some Cloud
Satya Nadella may not be a household name, but he is one smart son of a gun. A while back, Satya ran Microsoft's Dynamics business and while it is no SAP or Oracle, this ERP lineup is doing pretty darn well. Now Nadella is trying to get Microsoft's cloud initiative off the ground. He's not a bad choice for a cloud exec.
Nadella sees the cloud as a transition. He believes the transition is inevitable, but vendors and customers must deal with security first and foremost, as well as compliance (for larger shops) and reliability. He suggests making sure any data going over the wire up to the cloud and back is properly encrypted.
