Will Microsoft Survive until 2018?

Probably many of the readers of this post will read it because of the title. Provocative titles such as:" IT does not Matter" (Nicholas G. Carr, MIT), "The End of Corporate Computing"(Nicholas G Carr, MIT), "The End of the IT Department" (Neil MacDonald, Gartner Group) attract readers attention and sometimes trigger emotional reactions. By using provocative title you can make sure that your opinion and your arguments are read, noticed and commented at. Many readers are probably sure that Microsoft will be a dominant market player on 2018; however my opinion is that the probabili... (more)
