Executive Access Interviews Managing Director of Microsoft India
Executive Access interviewed Karan Bajwa, managing director of Microsoft India. In the interview Karan Bajwa discusses how he has been able to focus on team building while simultaneously driving business.
What are your major challenges that you face while the company transforms?
Bajwa: I believe that the true challenge that we face as we go through our journey of transformation is to draw and secure human attention, which is a truly scarce commodity in a mobile-first, cloud-first world where computing power is almost limitless. In this new world, there will soon be more than 3 billion people with Internet-connected devices, and while it may appear daunting, I consider this to be a huge opportunity for us as we focus on reinventing productivity and platforms to empower every individual and every organization to realize their full potential. I am a firm believer of the fact that tremendous opportunity abounds behind every challenge. India is home to 250 million Internet users but this accounts for under 20% of the total population of the country. The challenge before us is to extend the power of IT and affordable computing to enterprises and consumers alike. As the government seeks to empower the citizens of our country with the vision of Digital India, our commitment to the country’s accelerated growth remains steadfast. We have announced the availability of commercial cloud services through data centers in India, which would open new possibilities in e-governance, financial inclusion, healthcare and education, and will help us positively impact the lives of a billion people.
