Making Microsoft Office great again
A well written article from the WSJ on the Microsoft “rebound” under Satya. The part that caught my eye was that they promoted Javier Soltero (the guy who did the mail client Accompli on mobile) to head up strategy for all of Office.
Mr. Nadella soon put Mr. Soltero in charge of the entire Outlook business, one of Microsoft’s most widely used products. Last month, he promoted Mr. Soltero again, to oversee product strategy for the Office group, which includes Word, Excel and PowerPoint as well as the Skype messaging and Yammer collaboration services.
If you haven’t tried it, Accompli (now called Outlook) on mobile is great. If they can do the same thing for all of Office, that would be awesome.
