Ray Ozzie Tell MS Needs to Plan for Post-PC World

Posted by at 8:44 am on October 26, 2010

Microsoft’s  Ray Ozzie has posted an  essay sending warning signs to Microsoft that its core Office and Windows businesses would eventually come to an end. He asked coworkers to get ready for a “post-PC world.”  He warned that the PC platform was getting too complex both for users and developers and would likely lead to a backlash towards simpler devices. He also acknowledged that Microsoft had wasted its opportunities in mobile and had let Apple, Facebook, Google and others get a clear lead.

The soon to be former Chief Software Architect called on Microsoft to rethink its entire interface and app delivery models. The company also couldn’t wait for inspiration from the outside and had to have it “emerge from within.”
