Microsoft Aims to Reintroduce Itself to Wall Street
For the past little while now, Steve Ballmer has been calling Microsoft a “devices and services” company.
On Thursday, Microsoft will try to explain what that means for a company that most people think of as a software company first and foremost — and the world’s largest software maker, at that.
Microsoft is holding a four-hour analyst meeting in Redmond, starting at 1 pm PT.
Microsoft isn’t expected to have much of an update on the search to replace Ballmer, but it will likely clarify its shift to a devices and services business. In particular, the company is likely to revisit how it segments its businesses from a financial standpoint.
Expected to speak are Ballmer, CFO Amy Hood and operating chief Kevin Turner, as well as some of the company’s top engineering leaders.
