The Cloud Is the Future
Ray Ozzie is all about the cloud. When he joined Microsoft, he believed that the cloud would rule the day eventually, and the onus was on Microsoft to lead the way. But the software giant didn't do that. And in the process, it stuck with products that it knew would deliver the highest short-term gain. It eventually came around with Azure, but Microsoft's move to the cloud has been slow, to say the least. And when it gets pushed out of the cloud, it will only have Ballmer and other top-level executives to blame.
