Steve Ballmer may be on his way out, but he’s just as excited about the future of Microsoft as anyone. The groundwork his executive team laid out to analysts discussed the concept of “One Microsoft” as well as other initiatives they hope will bring the company back to the top of the technology world.
Top executives from Microsoft held a gathering on Sept. 19 in Bellevue, Wash., to discuss the company, its vision and the state of its operations with financial analysts.
While preparing to retire from the company he helmed for 13 years, Ballmer indicated that Microsoft has already begun to lay the groundwork for ensuring the software giant not only survives the post-PC era, but also thrives in it. On July 11, Microsoft announced a sweeping reorganization effort to speed up the transition from a software company to a provider of devices and services.
