New Server and Tools Chief Emerges

Get used to the name Satya Nadella. This native of India just took over Microsoft's Server and Tools division, which means he is in charge of the vast majority of enterprise products that includes all server apps and OSes, Visual Studio, Systems Center and Azure. Nadella replaces Microsoft two-decades plus veteran Bob Muglia.

Nadella is no stranger to Microsoft success, having taken over the Microsoft Dynamics business from Great Plains founder Doug Burgum.

Nadella also has some serious cloud chops, having been a senior vice president in the Microsoft Online Services Division.
