Microsoft’s Office 365 Remains the Consumers’ Favorite
Microsoft Office 365: A Constant Bestseller
Software giant Microsoft and its Office 365would never rest in reaping success after success in sales. This became more evident in the advent of its recent technology, the Microsoft Cloud. The fact is that it will most likely continue further in generating vast profits because it had been very smart in its business moves in the 1990s. While revolutionizing the software market, it also made sure that it will dominate and remain a household name. Applications like Word, Powerpoint, Excel, Outlook, and Windows have been very common even in the generic dictionaries from all over the world and more so in various operations implemented by BPOS. This is highly impressive, considering the gigantic barriers it took for Microsoft to hurdle in reaching the top. Here are the facts and figures for Microsoft’s fourth financial quarter. It generated revenues of $69.94 billions and made a net profit of $23.15 billions. Revenues were up by 12 percent compared to the same quarter last year. Net profit was up by a rather healthy 23 percent.
Microsoft Office and the Cloud
Although it is being burdened by the Google strain, it managed to sell 100 million licenses for Office 2011. Businesses are grabbing it like hotcakes, which is good news for Microsoft because it just proves that they are well tied-up to different enterprise systems. Even the latest Windows 7 has been gaining a lot of good reviews lately. Its server products also fared well in sales by growing at 12% and climbing. Microsoft even claims that its search engine, Bing, is doing pretty well and its entertainment division had reported a 30% growth in the last quarter. The software giant’s COO also reported that its cloud is doing well, too. Microsoft’s move to cloud services continues with the release and impetus of the Office 365 and growth in Windows Azure.
