Indian American Satya Nadella entered Microsoft in 1992 and has been successfully continuing his odyssey. Moreover, he is now one of the most important person in the software giant's pocket while his importance can be seen by the fact that he is being shortlisted for the forthcoming CEO's designation.

Nadella, 44, after joining Microsoft on early 90s served the company in various ways. At the moment, he is president of the Server and Tools Business. He was previously the senior VP of R&D for the Online Services Division (Bing, MSN and advertising) and has also led Microsoft's Business Solutions (Dynamics ERP and Dynamics CRM). In 2011, Nadella was back where he started, in the server and tools business, as its president. But again in July this year, he was handed the responsibility of the Cloud OS platform.

As he has been touching quite a bit of varied fields inside Microsoft, Nadella's diverse experience is currently giving him a strong chance to succeed Ballmer. There has even been a lot of talk about Ballmer wanting to position Nadella as his successor. Moreover, his experience with cloud makes his claim more stronger, given that cloud is now seen as the future of computing and almost all software giants including Google are working to make cloud based computing more efficient for future.
