Another snapshot from last night’s Churchill Club interview:
Levy: What’s your competitive edge when it comes to cloud computing over other tech companies?
Ozzie. There are five reasons: 1. Technology-Microsoft Research has been doing tremendous things 2. Operating systems: 3. Storage investments because of search. 4. Developer edge-5-7 million developers working on Microsoft stack. It’s a great market opportunity. If we can prove to them that we have a great infrastructure for their software, they will deploy it. There’s also opportunity with partners-there are going to be lots of opportunity for partners, like hardware partners to make money. 5. Enterprise- Exchange and Sharepoint are great ways to save money.
