In about a couple of hours, Satya Nadella, Microsoft’s freshly minted CEO, will be holding a webcast that will be broadcast on Microsoft’s site. As part of Nadella’s introduction to the world, he’ll be hosting an Internet webcast today at 12 p.m. PT/3 p.m. ET, where he’ll no doubt be speaking about his background, his vision of Microsoft, and his plans for the company now, and for the future.

Nadella’s first letter to Microsoft employees as CEO included shed some light on his vision for the company. In the letter, he said “The coevolution of software and new hardware form factors will intermediate and digitize — many of the things we do and experience in business, life and our world. This will be made possible by an ever-growing network of connected devices, incredible computing capacity from the cloud, insights from big data, and intelligence from machine learning.”
Nadella expanded on his points by noting that “This is a software-powered world.”
Nadella is a 22-year Microsoft veteran, having initially been hired to work on Windows NT. Since then, he’s risen through the ranks, holding positions like VP of the Business Division and leading Research & Development for Microsoft’s Online Services Division during his time with the company.
Most recently, Nadella was the Executive Vice President of Microsoft’s Cloud and Enterprise Group. Nadella’s background in cloud services could serve the company well, especially considering that the industry is moving in that direction ever so swiftly.
Needless to say, it’ll be interesting to see what Nadella has to say when the webcast starts up.
