Seventy percent of the 40000 people who work on software at Microsoft are in some way working in the
cloud internet, CEO Steve Ballmer said in a talk to comp sci students at the University of Washington. “A year from now, that will be 90 percent,” he said. Ballmer also said that Microsoft wants to help foster the development of different cloud internet-computing services, both private and public. All Microsoft products including Windows, Office, Xbox, Azure, Bing and Windows Phone are driven by the idea of being connected to the cloud internet.
