Global tech giant Microsoft ruled the roost in 2016 in the world of technology making acquisitions and profits all over. With hundreds of millions of devices running Windows 10, Microsoft had reportedly earned billions of dollars of revenue in the past year. Microsoft also made a big acquisition, LinkedIn along with a launch of the Slack competitor called Teams. But most importantly, after Satya Nadella took over as the CEO of the company, its focus on Cloud computing has reaped huge dividends and will continue doing so. Interestingly, once a closed software system, Microsoft also embraced open source in this period. The result can be seen in its amazing new product launches.

The $26.2 billion acquisition of LinkedIn can propel technology giant Microsoft to be the first tech company to attain a market value of $1 trillion, an analyst has said. A report in GeekWire on Monday quoted Michael Markowski, who writes for Equities, as saying that Microsoft will reach that threshold before other big companies like Amazon, Google, Facebook and Apple.

“Microsoft will do it by leveraging LinkedIn to become a leader in social media and the emerging crowdfunding industry,” the report said.

Microsoft is essentially backing up its promise made last year, of announcing the real-time collaborative editing feature on all of its desktop applications.

Microsoft will tie executive bonuses to workforce diversity goals after the company saw a second consecutive year of declines in the percentage of women employees, owing to its exit from the phone handset market. The percentage of women working at Microsoft fell to 25.8 per cent from 26.8 per cent of the company's workforce as of September 30, largely because the Nokia handset factories that Microsoft divested employed a larger number of women, said Gwen Houston, the company's chief diversity and inclusion officer.
