Satya Nadella's next speaking event is April 15th, focus on big data

Satya Nadella has been on a public appearance push over the past few weeks. With his first stop, the announcement of Office for iPad and then partaking in Q and A at BUILD, Nadella is not shy about taking to the stage to talk about Microsoft.

The next leg on his speaking road-trip will take place on April 15th at 10am PT / 1pm ET. The topic? Nadealla and Kevin Turner (COO) will meet with customers and discuss Microsoft’s vision for "big data" and show off examples as well.

There will be a live-stream for the event, which you can watch here, and of course, if any announcements are made, they will be posted to Neowin too.

To no surprise, Azure is a major component of Microsoft’s enterprise, and potentially its consumer strategy for the next generation of software. With nearly everything moving to the cloud these days, Microsoft is making strategic plays into the cloud markets to build out it’s next generation platform.

Big Data is one of the focuses of Nadella’s discussions and as more and more of our daily processes move to online segments, data mining is becoming a massive industry and we expect Nadella and Turner to focus around these markets along with other business based themes.

Livestream: April 15th, 10am PT / 1pm ET

I don't expect it to be an exciting presentation. Steve Ballmer would at least jump and scream "It's time to turn Big Data into Bing Data!"

Since "big data" is oriented to the business community, how about fixing the Windows OS to be much more business community friendly? Don't mean to sound bitter, but Windows-8 and its host add-ons just isn't "cutting it." Windows-9 with a choice of UIs could fix the problem.
