Microsoft's new CEO Satya Nadella's first public appearance was given a thumbs up by analysts, as the company unveiled Office for iPad.
Carolina Milanesi, strategic insight director of Kantar Worldpanel ComTech, said Nadella was very confident and a whole different character than Ballmer, much calmer.
According to PC World, Milanesi praised Nadella, saying he 'did a great job' in his opening remarks as he expounded on his 'mobile first, cloud first' strategy.
Ross Rubin, an independent analyst with Reticle Research, in a Friday interview, said Nadella made it clear that Office on iPad was only a piece of the overall strategy.
Rob Koplowitz, an analyst with Forrester Research, said he was very impressed with Nadella.
