Interesting how the title turned out: Microsoft welcomes scrutiny of tech industry that has roiled its competition this year, says CEO Nadella. Easy for him to say. Kind of true as Microsoft was not in the focus of all the troubles this year but on the other hand, one could say that we learned our lesson from the Windows XP issues we had early in this century.
A few good quotes:
“Having the scrutiny is actually good, I think,” he said. The tech industry shouldn’t think of it as “attacks on us,” he added. “Anyone who is providing a very critical service needs to raise the standards of the safety of that technology and the security of that technology.”
And as I said:
Nadella, who has described security as “the most pressing issue of our time,” contrasted the hard lessons that younger firms like Facebook are learning this year with Microsoft’s own challenges.
I still think the industry as a whole has to mature..
