Things are changing, both at Apple and Microsoft. These companies are opening up and signaling the dawn of a new era that involves unsaid partnerships to benefit their businesses. A week ago, Apple brought Microsoft Office chief at the new iPad Pro launch event and then we witnessed another similar development.
Recently, at Salesforce’s annual Dreamforce conference, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella used an iPhone onstage and gave a demonstration of Microsoft’s cross-platform mobile apps. Using the iPhone, Satya Nadella said, “I’m going to first start on this iPhone, and it’s not my phone, but it is an iPhone,” and everyone chuckled.
Further, Nadella showed that the iPhone he was holding in his hand, had all the Office apps and Skype from Microsoft, and thus it makes the iPhone a “pro” device. Showing off the Outlook app, Nadella said that Outlook is an email client, but it’s the best email client on iOS for Exchange and Gmail.
But, on the stage, Nadella made sure that people know the fact that he uses a Windows Phone and used it to demonstrate the Groups application from Microsoft.
All this development shows that this is the “new Microsoft” we are witnessing and it was impossible few years ago. Also, few years ago, Salesforce and Microsoft used to criticize each other publicly- but things have changed under Nadella.
