“We are Kinder Than Them.” Trump and Modi Don’t Reflect the Spirit of Gujarat.

President Donald Trump is due to make the first ever visit by an American head of state to Ahmedabad, the biggest city in the western state of Gujarat. It is the state that Narendra Modi, now Prime Minister, ruled for 12 years. It’s also where where generations of my family have lived. A big reason that Trump chose Ahmedabad is that the largest number of Indians in the U.S. – and the most fervent supporters of Modi – are Gujaratis. Trump is hoping that, by showing up in Ahmedabad to declare...

Will Low-Code and No-Code Platforms Revolutionize Programming?

In a new article in Forbes, a Business Technology professor at the Villanova School of Business argues that the way we build software applications is changing: If you're living in the 21st century you turn to your cloud provider for help where many of the most powerful technologies are now offered as-a-service. When your requirements cannot be completely fulfilled from cloud offerings, you build something. But what does "building" mean? What does "programming" mean...? You can program from scrat...

20 Years After Dot-Com Peak, Tech Dominance Keeps Investors on Edge

As Wall Street approaches the 20th anniversary of the piercing of the dot-com bubble, today's decade-old rally led by a few small players shows some similarities that cautious investors are keeping an eye on. From a report: March 11, 2000 marked the beginning of a crash of overly-inflated stocks that would last over two years, lead to the failure of investor favorites including Worldcom and Pets.com and take over 13 years for Wall Street to recover from. That bust ended a 1,000% decade-long Nasd...

We did the math to calculate how many hours it takes America's top CEOs to make what their workers earn in one year

While it's not surprising that CEOs make a lot more money than their employees, the massive extent of that pay gap can sometimes be overlooked. US companies are required to publish their chief executives' annual compensation, as well as the ratio of that compensation to the annual pay of the company's median employee. Using those ratios, we calculated how long it took CEOs at 19 of the biggest companies in the US to make what at typical employee earned in a year. Several CEOs, including Disney...

Read the email Satya Nadella sent to Microsoft employees on his first day as CEO: 'Our industry does not respect tradition — it only respects innovation' (MSFT)

Satya Nadella took over as Microsoft CEO six years ago on Feb. 4, 2014.

Even as Microsoft Azure revenue grows, AWS’s market share lead stays strong

When analyzing the cloud market, there are many ways to look at the numbers; revenue, year-over-year or quarter-over-quarter growth — or lack of it — or market share. Each of these numbers tells a story, but in the cloud market, where aggregate growth remains high and Azure’s healthy expansions continues, it’s still struggling to gain meaningful ground on AWS’s lead. This has to be frustrating to Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, who has managed to take his company from cloud wannabe to a st...

Microsoft's Windows business just had its best quarter since Satya Nadella became CEO, and it's thanks to the demise of Windows 7 (MSFT)

Microsoft's overall Windows revenue increased 18% in its most recent quarter from the same period the year before. That makes it the best quarter for Windows in terms of growth since Satya Nadella became CEO in January 2014. The increase is due in large part to Microsoft ending support for its popular Windows 7 operating system and encouraging users to buy Windows 10 — or new PCs that automatically come with the newer Windows. Microsoft expects Windows revenue growth to slow after this big Win...

Microsoft's top healthcare exec says one of CEO Satya Nadella's biggest innovations was to 'violate the horizontal nature of Microsoft' and go after more specific customers (MSFT)
