Kudos to Mr. Satya Nadella, Microsoft’s CEO, for confirming the long – time traveling rumors regarding a potential Microsoft Office suite for the iPad. Just as everybody expected, the much – awaited groundbreaking Microsoft product was officially presented yesterday morning during the press briefing held in San Francisco. Microsoft Office for iPad was unveiled as a strike of genius from Nadella’s part, not only because it confirmed the company’s detractors that Microsoft still has some aces down its sleeve and it can still bring innovation into this world, but also that Mr. Nadella is a powerful CEO and a visionary: although this is his first show – off product, it kicked off with a bang, proving that the future of Microsoft is in good hands.
Moreover, Nadella has announced the beginning of a new era for Microsoft, as he intends to take the glory beyond Windows based, exclusive products: he aims to spread the software and the services to everything portable that exists, be them phones, tablets, PCs and all web. If this was the first step that had to be made to reposition Microsoft among the game – changers in the tech world, it is more than welcomed.
So Microsoft Office for iPad was unveiled. What are Microsoft’s future plans?
The audience was impressed with the looks of the suite and the switch from the classic mouse – keyboard tradition to an easy to use touch screen. Microsoft’s investors were more than happy to see the new policy shift Nadella is starting to propel, as while the market is dominated (and a bit over – saturated) with Apple’s IOS and Google’s Android in terms of portable gadgets, Microsoft will have a tough battle to manage, as the competition is fierce and Microsoft is still swimming murky waters.
But Nadella dreams and aims big, as we will have another conference next week revealing other innovations and projects, or so the company’s CEO announced. Is Microsoft back on track? Well, if the iPad users jump to the new product, the future news might surprise even the most skeptic of Microsoft’s competitors.
