In a video message during the launch of Digital India initiative by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella pledged the company's support to help the government in efforts to transform the country through technological innovations.
Satya said that Microsoft is proud to be a part of Digital India launch and he believes that technology can uniquely support the government's initiatives in key areas including: rural internet connectivity, digital cloud services for all its citizens, and communications and productivity services for the Government.
He also highlighted the parallel vision of Microsoft and the Digital India initiative.
"At Microsoft, our focus is on empowering every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more. Likewise, the Digital India initiative is focused on harnessing the power of technology to help India transform."
The Microsoft CEO also reiterated that the company is bringing its marquee cloud services - Microsoft Azure, Dynamics, and Office 365 - to local data centres in India to accelerate cloud innovation and connect every Indian and every Indian business to the world through the global hyper-scale cloud.
