That scenario is now continuing to be done and still be effective in current’s digital information technology world. Gates had calculated measurement before Microsoft recommended, instead of spending $8 billion to acquired Slack, they should make a clone application to kill them, latest tech news informed.
Today, tech world waves at the news that Microsoft had launched a new chat application named Microsoft Teams – a product are suggested by main chairman Bill Gates. Not long ago, the media reported that Gates had intervened to prevent the intention to acquire Slack of Microsoft with $8 billion and suggested the company create a similar application based on the platform Skype had acquired since 2011.
It seems that Microsoft has obedient to follow the advice of the founder. Microsoft began testing a new product called Skype Team for group chat, and now officially renamed the Teams in 2016. In fact, Microsoft Teams was a personification of Bill Gates – may himself be one of the first to register for an account. Microsoft is expected to use his power to crush rivals Slack – a favorite application of tech companies.
Since the 1990s, Bill Gates has been honored the Borg – cyborg character in the Star Trek series to describe the destruction of his utopia. When Gates was operating Microsoft, the giant software maker is often known as a company that always wants to win at all costs. If Microsoft is not acquired the rivals, they would find a similar product design or identical to competition by attaching them to the Windows operating system and then distributed to the majority of their customers.
Presence all over the place Microsoft Office 365 now owns 85 million monthly users, almost all of which are paying customers and are allowed to access Microsoft Teams as soon as this product officially was launched in 2017.
his is really a tremendous strength for Microsoft Teams, where the customers of the product infancy were at other perennial rivals can only dream about. Microsoft also owns several other resources, including corporate customers and a solid security stronghold that the startup of the same kind still has headaches everyday battle.
More important is the repository synchronized Teams Microsoft Office applications – the standard software working of millions of people for many years. Overall, Microsoft has always owned fundamental advantage.
With the Windows operating system and Office suite tools, the platform is almost no separation with PC users, the synchronization is deep into a new product and introduce them to all user groups are always easy a lot easier for the Redmond giant. Although available on an ecosystem of developers designing applications for the platform and its chat bot, but Slack will remain difficult to compete with Microsoft’s product line.
In other words, Microsoft is gradually turning Office into a weapon destroyed startups in the field of application performance. And similar to the way Bill Gates beats rivals in 90s, now Microsoft can continue to use the tip with many other technologies.
Unlike in the era of Gates, office users can choose the innumerable tool and it is not necessarily to use Office bundles of the entire company. Microsoft can be confident to reach large customers, but if Teams cannot prove its attraction than the opponents, the user still willing spinning heel, even for products that can be fastened to the Office 365 to go matter.
