Microsoft is one of the worlds largest technology companies. Its core products are the Windows Operating System and Enterprise software. It has in recent times expanded into hardware in the form of the X-Box games console.
Recently the company has found itself struggling to keep up with the cloud and online environments.
Its search engine Bing, is largely ridiculed when compared to Google. It has also failed to take advantage of the social media platforms, instead keeping its MSN network running.
The MSN network lost ground to MySpace initially and then in later years to Twitter and Facebook.
The company has since retired the Hotmail brand, causing confusion as the webmail service is now called Outlook, the same as its desktop email client.
There have been strong indications that the company may separate into two, one concerned with enterprise software, the other focussing on the home market, including the Hololens and XBox.
