Nowadays, Microsoft has created a history as a business conglomerate and all the techies, as well as the end-users, are agreed on the same point. Whoever has used Microsoft products is familiar with the name “Bill Gates”, a legendary personality who gifted us a fantasy world to enjoy and learn. Microsoft was founded by Mr. Bill Gates in association with Mr. Paul Alien in 1975 to sell BASIC interpreters.
Its mission is to enable people and businesses throughout the world in full potential by creating technology that transforms the way people work, plays, and communicates. The engineers develop and market software, services, and hardware devices that deliver new opportunities, greater convenience, and enhanced value to people's lives.
Microsoft’s products include operating systems for computing devices, servers, phones, and other intelligent devices like server applications for distributed computing environments productivity applications; business solution applications desktop and server management tools, software development tools, video games, and online advertising. Microsoft, headquartered in Washington, now offers various operating systems and software for desktop computers. This multinational company strives to help the worldwide business community improve efficiency and productivity.
Microsoft offers a wide range of products like Microsoft Office Live, which creates a paperless environment, and Windows Vista, which addresses the environmental concerns of businesses. Vista and Windows Server 2008 decrease, by half, carbon emissions and power consumption costs. We have examples of many companies whose products have changed, and even revolutionized the way in which we live, but it’s difficult to search one which has the global impact of Microsoft. In some cases, it has created opportunities, and even demand, while in others they were slow to respond or late to react.
Microsoft, with a clear vision, has a drastic market sell-off of its competitors and having aggressive sustained growth to thank for “the best” title. Its stock is progressively 20% up from the beginning of the year. As a result, we can see that consistency and credibility is always with the brand “Microsoft” and it will mark its monopoly in the future also.
