The Future is Soon

At the Bub.bilicio.us blog, Brian Solis observes the current state of affairs at Microsoft. Today, virtually every company is dependent upon Microsoft products, and especially upon Windows. However, throughout the years, while Microsoft has continued to dominate the market, they have failed to listen to their consumers. Brian makes a prediction that due to the up and coming in the clouds software, the dominance of Microsoft will be a thing of the past. With the debate between Microsoft and Yahoo still raging, Brian thinks that it would benefit Yahoo the most to be baught by Yahoo!.

So, with the future coming, and software evolving by the day, will Microsoft truly be able to keep up with the needs of the Enterprise? We’ve seen the fall of the main stream music industry in the matter of ten years. One concept came along (mp3s) and obliterated the key source of revenue. Due to lack of reaction, major music labels are still struggling to keep up. Microsoft should take note from another major industry. Configure now to what your customers want, or you’ll be left struggling to float when the inevitable happens. After all, Brian Solis thinks it could be 2011.
