Microsoft possibly about to announce biggest amount of layoffs since 2009
Just last week, Chief Executive Officer Satya Nadella issued a mission statement, calling for more focus and efficiency. What exactly the new CEO has in mind for future operations is yet to be unveiled later this month, according to his words.
Nadella's memo also calls for further emphasis on mobile devices, cloud-computing and productivity software. In an interview last week, the CEO said that with the new cloud methods of building software, developers are able to test and fix bugs on their own, omitting the need for a large chunk of testers. When asked whether this implies job cuts, Nadella declined to reply.
