Hyderabad: Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella today said that the tech giant would like to work with T-Hub to develop accelerators and startups.

He said this during his visit to T-Hub, billed as India’s largest technology incubator.

“Indian talent in the area is dramatically growing and we can see their dominance in the field,” he said while addressing budding entrepreneurs.

On a visit to Hyderabad, Nadella visited the facility located at the International Institute of Information Technology (IIIT), Hyderabad.

Nadella said Microsoft’s goal and dream are to empower local entrepreneurs to solve last mile connectivity.

He said that his energy comes from the interaction with entrepreneurs across the world.

“There are three points to success. concept, capability, culture. Learn more from day one… chase after your concept or idea. Improve your capability to chase the idea… Curate the culture,” he told the entrepreneurs in an inspirational talk.

To a query, he said the importance of failure lies in learning from it.

Telangana’s Information and Technology minister KT Rama Rao took him around the T-Hub and explained about various initiatives of the government.

Microsoft has joined other industry partners like Google and Intel to create the Confidential Computing Consortium, a new organisation that will be hosted at The Linux Foundation.

The consortium will include other founding members Alibaba, ARM, Baidu, IBM, Intel, Red Hat, Swisscom and Tencent.

In this organisation, the industry can come together to collaborate on open source technology and frameworks to support new confidential computing scenarios.

“The Confidential Computing Consortium will be dedicated to defining and accelerating the adoption of confidential computing,” Mark Russinovich, CTO, Microsoft Azure, wrote in a blog post on Wednesday.

Confidential computing technologies offer the opportunity for organisations to collaborate on their data sets without giving access to that data, to gain shared insights and to innovate for the common good.

“There are three types of possible data exposure to protect against. One is data at rest and another data in transit. While there’s always room to improve and innovate, the industry has built technologies and standards to address these scenarios.

“The third possible exposure — or as I like to think of it, the critical ‘third leg of the stool’ — is data in use. Protecting data while in use is called confidential computing,” Russinovich explained. (IANS)
