Intelligent Cloud, Intelligent Edge

Nadella said one of his aims is to "express how we do things very differently" as a result of the move into the new era of "intelligent cloud and intelligent edge." What is common across the solution areas that Microsoft is focusing on -- including modern workplace, business applications, applications/infrastructure and data/AI -- is "this profound shift to a new way of doing things," he said. "Ultimately, though, we've got to measure ourselves not by technology for technology's sake, but [by] how are we empowering people? How are we helping organizations with their digital transformational outcomes? That's what this is all about." The "paradigm shift" that's coming, Nadella said, is "probably bigger than anything that's come before."

In part that's because "there are three things that are happening simultaneously," he said. "At the experience layer, we are moving to this people-centered experience. That means we're going to, in some sense, de-couple the experience from the devices"

In addition, "we're going to infuse everything with AI. It's going to have perception capability, language capability, and autonomy that's going to be built into the applications going forward," Nadella said. "And to power all of this, the one thing that's needed is a ubiquitous, distributed computing fabric."
