Iain Mobberley, OCSL's Technology Director discusses the changes at Microsoft, how the new leadership team are finding their feet and how the world of Cloud and Mobile is redefining Microsoft as a business.

For anyone that knows me, you will know that I do not really appreciate the finer points of football.

However, when the opportunity presents itself to spend time with a senior leader from Microsoft, Dr. Helmut Panke, nonexecutive Director of the Microsoft Board since November 2013, in a social setting, (read bar) and watch Germany against Argentina I found it hard to resist!

Of course it was a 115 minutes of tense end to end football and five minutes of nail biting while Germany defended their 1-0 lead. What was really interesting was how even one of the world’s senior industrial leaders is grounded by something no more than a game!

It was a real pleasure to spend time discussing the changes at Microsoft, how the new leadership team are finding their feet and how the world of Cloud and Mobile is redefining Microsoft as a business.

Follow OCSL at #WPC 2014 on Twitter this week whilst we are in Washington attending the WorldWide Partner Conference.  I’ll be seeing who else I bump into !
