These days, when we talk about digitization or any disruption in the technology. We ask each other “What’s the next big thing in techno space?” We have travelled so far in this techno-space that with every disruption in the technology we are coming one step closer to the era of Artificial Intelligence. The companies like Apple, Alphabet, Amazon, Facebook and many more are already mesmerizing the whole world with its unique innovation and attention-seeking products.
Now, another renowned company which has taken the digital industry by storm is none other than “Microsoft”. According to reports, Microsoft is going to be the first digital to be valued at US $1 trillion. More interesting is the fact that this techno-giant will cross this biggest mark before other equivalent players such as Apple, Alphabet, Facebook and Amazon.
The acquisition of LinkedIn has worked as a panacea for Microsoft to cross the US $1 Trillion dollars mark faster than other closest competitors. Exactly, that 26 billion all cash acquisition has reaped fruits for Microsoft and it has managed to pick up the pace in the industry. Though, presently Apple is leading the market with its market value of US $623 billion followed by Alphabet (US $550 billion) and Microsoft with its market value of US $495 billion is at the third spot. It will be quite surprising to see how Microsoft will capitalize the market. With LinkedIn on his side, it has already gripped the professional and business social media segment. Under the leadership of Satya Nadela, Microsoft has jumped up from $300 billion to $500 billion in the past 2 years. In this game of valuation and acquisition, ultimately, the world is at its comfort zone with some great disruptive products on the way.
