Microsoft’s Global Business Hailey Staab October 10, 2017 M4A2 – BUS201 1
Microsoft is such a huge name nationwide but also globally. Some investors have doubted that Microsoft has anymore room to grow despite their amazing surge over the years. In the technology sector there are always plenty of opportunities to grow, such as AI, Cloud and IoT for Microsoft at the moment. “One way to grow its business is by way of acquisition, as the company did not too long ago when it acquired LinkedIn. Accelerating growth with LinkedIn is a top priority for management. It will try to drive this by the redesign of its desktop and by creating more value for both members and customers. So far progress already is being made with LinkedIn as it marked an important milestone by exceeding 500 million members with more than 10 million jobs posted.” Microsoft has many other opportunities in the Office365 and the Dynamics365. While Microsoft has many opportunities the company also faces some major risks that investors take into consideration. One of those is that the PC market is on a downward slope with the use of tablets and smart phones. More people have a tablet in their home and use that than people do with desktop computers. Microsoft also has a free competitor that offers many of the same applications, this is called Apache Open Office.
