Who's Steering The Cloud Strategies At Amazon, Google And Microsoft?



Scott Guthrie, Executive VP, Microsoft's Cloud And Enterprise Group

Guthrie, a 17-year Microsoft veteran, moved into the role vacated by Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella in February. He previously was head of Windows Azure and has for years been a popular figure in the Microsoft developer community, known for wearing his distinctive red polo shirt in public speaking appearances.

At Microsoft's Build conference earlier this month, Guthrie presided over the launch of 44 new Azure cloud services and features, many designed to make it easier for developers to code mobile and Web apps.

He also unveiled the Azure Preview Portal, which lets cloud developers build and manage their apps in a single place.
