An unexpected change occurred on Wednesday (21st of January 2015) when Microsoft bounced back! Not in a small way but in a HUGE way….
People have slated Microsoft for years and like other companies they just haven’t see the bigger picture! These people are screaming and shouting how amazing Google and Android are but they are stuck in this Eco-System closet!
Microsoft are now defining themselves as “One Product – One Family” but the people I am talking about above are seeing what “One Family” means….
Just look at what has happened over the last 18 months with regards to this family…..
Who is this family?
We have seen over this period what many would see as enemies or competitors aren’t seeing this family are seeing – they are….
We seen companies that offer the same services in certain areas really connecting and linking together to share services and products to create “Frienemies” where what could previously be seen as enemies now been friends and this family is…..
Apple, Dropbox, IBM, LinkedIn, Microsoft, Yahoo
During 2015, we are going to see more and more connectivity between this family and how it will come together and really move your business forward…..
So we have Windows10 going to be appearing across all devices like Desktop, Laptop, Tablet, Phablet, Mobile and xBoxONE and the same with office2016 – how powerful is this?
Then you are seeing these companies using each other’s back office services, sharing their services and App’s on each other’s platforms and then cross selling each other’s services their own stores as well as sharing Intellectual Property too…
So, combine this 3D and 4D Printing, AI and VR and BOOM – the business world is exploding but is business ready?
And before you laugh – people did this when Microsoft launched the Smartwatch back in 2003 and then cancelled the project in 2008, hang on a minute, all these Smartwatch makers today, are copying this design!
And now they are bringing Hololens and Holostudio – so get ready to have your business turned on it’s head…..
So, buckle up, jump on board and get ready…..
As the future is coming….
Is your business ready……
