“Just as Microsoft employees joined the company to make a difference in the world, so did LinkedIn’s employees – and together, I believe we can have an even greater impact in the future,” he wrote.
We take a look at what Nadella had to say about his day spent at the LinkedIn campus:
What an amazing day on the LinkedIn campus.
For a few months now, Jeff Weiner, Reid Hoffman, Qi Lu and I have been dreaming about what Microsoft and LinkedIn could do together. It was clear early on that both Microsoft and LinkedIn are centered on a common mission – to empower people and organizations. This sense of purpose and mission is palpable all over campus.
I witnessed first-hand the LinkedIn team’s relentless focus on delivering value to its members – something that will never change. We also know that by bringing together the world’s leading professional cloud of Office 365 and Dynamics with the world’s leading professional network of LinkedIn, we can deliver new delightful and intelligent experiences.
This morning in a public presentation, Jeff and I outlined how we will reinvent new ways to help professionals be more productive and also reinvent selling, marketing and talent management business processes. Think about it – how people find jobs, build skills, get work done and ultimately find success requires a connected professional world.
It requires a vibrant network that brings together a professional’s information in LinkedIn’s public network with the information in Office 365 and Dynamics. This combination will make it possible for new experiences such as a LinkedIn newsfeed that serves up articles based on the project you are working on and Office suggesting an expert to connect with via LinkedIn to help with a task you’re trying to complete.
Of equal importance to this deal, is the distinct sense of purpose and culture that will define our path forward. Just as Microsoft employees joined the company to make a difference in the world, so did LinkedIn’s employees – and together, I believe we can have an even greater impact in the future.
