His promotion and achievements are to be attributed to his sheer determination and never dying spirit.

Nadella seems to fit the envisioned role for the CEO of Microsoft perfectly, a company that is hoping to metamorphose from a software giant into a device and service company, a move taken by the acquisition of Nokia's mobile division. He believes that everybody can achieve his goal by using digital technology which fits to their business. 

The main aim of Microsoft is to empower every person and ograinsation on the planet to achieve more. Nadella says, "What we do is to provide digital technology and digital technology platforms so that others can do things, get things done, make things happen".

He explained for example, that even farmers are using connected devices to monitor production on a large scale in real-time. This in the future he hopes that, Microsoft can thrive in and it indicates that the term `enterprise market' means more to him than the IT department at our local bank or call center. If his vision is successful. Microsoft could achieve a great success. 

Satya Nadella managed to grow in his career because of his sheer dedication and hard work. He ought to remember that success is the result of years of hard work. Nadella's life story is an inspiration to all of us and it is hoped that India produces individuals like Satya Nadella, who are not only assets to an organisation but are assets to the entire world.
