Microsoft ruled personal computer world for more than two decades, no doubt about it. But what next? Does the company losing its existence in the technology market? Here is the breif analysis.
Technology means Microsoft
Even a couple of other operating systems existed in the field of technology before Microsoft DOS, and Windows entered into the market, for the regular PC user Windows played a crucial role. Desktop users widely adopted IBM PCs with Microsoft Windows installed on them. Later the momentum shifted to Laptops,
Mobile usage changed the fate of Microsoft
Even though mobile usage started from 2001 with Symbian series 60 and UIQ series operating systems, it triggered to the next level after Android operating arrival in the year 2008. Microsoft has a great chance to compete Android at that time. But major strategic failures caused the company to lose its existence in the smartphone market.
Windows, What next?
Last year Microsoft decided to stop the version numbering after Windows 10 release. Earlier PC users used to wait for the Windows latest versions time to time. But now Windows also lost the craze and curiosity in the PC users. Even though Microsoft releasing periodic updates to the Windows 10 people are least aware of the new changes taken place in the latest updates.
Microsoft has to follow a proper plan to keep the desktop market share it is enjoying right now. Otherwise, nobody thinks about Microsoft.
Microsoft is spending more resources on Artificial Intelligence and few other upcoming technologies. But there is also an intense competition from the rivals in this area also. For example, the company is focusing on Cloud services, but there is a strong competition from Amazon web services and other players in cloud technologies. This is the right time for Microsoft to future-proof their ideas. Otherwise, it may be wiped out from the memories of the users.
