Profile on Satya Nadella – CEO of Microsoft and Keynote Speaker at Envision 2016

We’re getting very close to the inaugural Microsoft Envision Conference, set to take place in New Orleans, LA on April 4-6, 2016. Registration for the event is now open on the Microsoft site. Envision has evolved from Convergence to become an event geared towards anyone charged with making key decisions in their company. Kicking off Envision will be Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft, as the opening keynote speaker.

Nadella was named CEO in February 2014 after working at Microsoft since 1992. His most recent role before becoming CEO was executive vice president of Microsoft’s Cloud and Enterprise group, leading the transformation to cloud computing. His previous titles at Microsoft throughout the years ranged from Program Manager in the Windows Developer Relations group to President of the Microsoft Server and Tools Business.

Born in India in 1969, Nadella received degrees in both engineering and computer science, going on to earn an MBA from the University of Chicago. An adept multi-tasker, he earned his MBA while working at Microsoft, regularly flying back and forth from Redmond to Chicago. Driven by an intense curiosity about the world, he says he signs up for more online classes that he can attend and purchases more books than he can finish reading.

Nadella was one of the few Microsoft employees who brought forward the concept of cloud computing to the company. As executive vice president of Microsoft’s Cloud and Enterprise group, Nadella and his team delivered Microsoft’s next generation backend platform; “Cloud OS”. Leading the transformation to the cloud infrastructure and services business, the OS outperformed in the market and took share from the competition, increasing revenues of cloud services from $16.6 billion to $20.3 billion.

We hope to see you at the opening keynote at the first ever Envision on April 4-6, 2016! If you have not yet registered, download this form and contact us to help guide you through the process.

“Be passionate and bold. Always keep learning. You stop doing useful things if you don’t learn.” – Satya Narayana Nadella
