  • Hi everybody.Thanks for making time to come and hang out with us today.I know what people think when they hear Microsoft. Frankly, it’s kind of hard not to know what people think when they hear Microsoft. That’s why I started with that video. But I want to tell you today, that we always have and are continuing to change.The technology world is at a point of significant transition and Microsoft has been a leader of each of the major technology transitions over the last 30 years.From mainframe computers, huge computers that where the size of this room to PCs, the personal computer.CLICK:From PCs to client/server, a world where multiple machines could access the same data from a single source.This was the big transition when I was coming of age and in college.CLICK:In 2000, the network internet took shape into what it is today. This was the big transition you experienced as you were coming of age and now your generation is driving the next big transition.T: The transition of mobility and cloud
