Congrats, Satya Nadella. In just five years, you've turned Microsoft from Neutral Evil to, er, merely True Neutral

The hits, misses, and axings by the newish CEO Stepping into the sweaty shoes of Steve Ballmer was never going to be an easy task. Satya Nadella’s first five years as third CEO of the software giant has brought pain to fans of Microsoft's consumer tech but delight to investors.…

The rise of Satya Nadella, the CEO who totally turned Microsoft around in 5 years and made it more valuable than Apple (MSFT)

Five years ago, Satya Nadella became CEO of Microsoft.  In that timeframe, Microsoft has been rejuvenated — it's enjoyed a stretch as the most valuable company in the world, beating Apple for the first time since 2010.  More than anything, Nadella has gotten a ton of credit for overcoming Microsoft's once-cutthroat corporate culture, and getting everybody on the same page.  Here's how Nadella went from a rank-and-file Microsoft engineer, all the way up to CEO. When Satya Nadella first took th...

Amazon Web Services is experimenting with a new way to charge customers that makes it look a lot like an old-school tech company (AMZN)

Amazon Web Services recently launched WorkLink, a service that helps employees securely access their corporate apps from a smartphone.  The service is unusual because of the way Amazon is charging for it: per user. Amazon has typically charged based on how much of its cloud services you use, not on how many users try it.  Per-user pricing is a very old school business model, and it could be a slippery slope for the cloud computing giant. Amazon recently introduced a new service called WorkLi...

After 5 years, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has transformed more than the stock price

Five years ago today, Satya Nadella took over as CEO at Microsoft, and by most any measure has been wildly successful. It’s common to look at the stock price as the defining metric of Nadella’s tenure, but the stock price triumph has followed something more fundamental and harder to measure, how he changed the culture of the entire organization. Nadella’s term at Microsoft has paralleled my own here at TechCrunch. I started in April of 2014, and in one of my first posts, I wrote about the dif...

Microsoft is making the right moves to fix its past mistakes and topple the PlayStation with its next game console

When Microsoft introduced the Xbox One in 2013, it was still the industry standard-bearer in video game consoles with the Xbox 360. In the course of a few months, Microsoft torpedoed its goodwill with its most dedicated fans, while Sony repeatedly dunked on Microsoft with the introduction of the PlayStation 4. But Microsoft has been repositioning its Xbox business in smart ways, introducing programs that people love and paving the way for a future that sounds promising. Meanwhile, Sony has mad...

Microsoft Azure revenue growth slows in Q2

Microsoft announced its quarterly earnings today. For the most part, those earnings came in around Wall Streets expectations, without any major surprises and a total revenue of $32.5 billion. Given the company’s bets on cloud computing, what’s maybe most important, though, is that Azure recorded revenue growth of 76 percent. That’s the same growth the company booked in the last quarter and still respectable growth, but depending on your perspective, you can also read it as growth flatting out. “...

The head of healthcare at Microsoft lays out the 3 ways AI will actually transform healthcare

Peter Lee, the corporate vice president of Microsoft Healthcare, has a pretty straightforward thesis when it comes to tech's involvement in healthcare.  "For me, it's fundamentally a question of what right do we have as a company like Microsoft to be participating in healthcare," Lee said. With that in mind, he sees three areas in healthcare where artificial intelligence can benefit the work being done. DAVOS, Switzerland — For Peter Lee, the bar for big tech players like Microsoft to be in t...

A huge health insurer is teaming up with Apple in a bet that an app and a smart watch can make you healthier

Aetna, one of the largest health insurers in the US, has teamed up with Apple to build an app that tracks and rewards the health plan's members for being healthy.  The app, called Attain, launches in the spring.

Artificial intelligence could improve the expensive, slow process of developing drugs.  Novartis is investing in AI, which executive Jay Bradner calls the "next great tool" for making new medicines. But the technology also isn't quite there yet, Bradner said.  Bradner, who leads Novartis's drug research and development, spoke with Business Insider at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland last week.

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez calls out big tech on climate change controversy

The newly minted social media star congresswoman is wasting no time in tearing into tech companies. In a recent letter, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez joined Maine representative Chellie Pingree in calling out tech companies for supporting an event they believe to be inconsistent with big tech’s ostensibly climate-friendly attitude. Ocasio-Cortez is a noted champion of a Democratic package of sweeping environmental reforms called the Green New Deal — a term we can expect to hear a lot more leading int...

Microsoft's head of healthcare thought it was a 'career-ending move' when Satya Nadella offered him the job. Here's why he says he's now completely sucked in (MSFT)

The feud between Amazon's cloud and Oracle may have its roots in a failed meeting between their leaders in 2013 (ORCL, AMZN)

Amazon CEO Andy Jassy does something that no one else at Amazon every does: he publicly, and regularly, trash-talks a competitor. That competitor is Oracle, and Oracle's founder Larry Ellison — who is, himself, the king of trash talk, and not shy about his disdain for Amazon.  The acrimony has its roots in the fierce competition between the two companies. But it may also have been inspired by a meeting around six years ago between Jassy and Oracle's then-president Mark Hurd, reported by the In...
