“Indian customers leapfrog to the cloud, and accumulate
significant cost savings. Azure is a powerful platform for the entire Indian
ecosystem of IT professionals, developers and start-ups to bring their
applications to market worldwide. It provides a unique opportunity for our
partners to scale their business.  I
believe the opportunities ahead for India with the Azure cloud platform are
tremendous,” Nadella added.

“Having grown up in India, the idea that I would have the
opportunity to talk to all of you as the CEO of Microsoft was beyond my wildest
dreams. My interests at that time were a bit more focused on cricket than on
technology,” he said.

Karan Bajwa, Managing Director, Microsoft India said, “India
is the fastest growing market for Azure. Windows Azure’s clients in India
include three leading private banks, five leading automobile manufacturers,
four leading health care organisations (including Fortis Healthcare) and three
leading media houses.”

ecosystem of IT professionals, developers and start-ups to bring their
applications to markets worldwide. It helps Indian customers leapfrog to the
cloud and accrue significant cost savings. I believe the opportunities ahead
for India with the Azure cloud platform are tremendous,” he said.
