Important Notice: Microsoft to Eliminate 18,000 Jobs! What Does This Mean for Your Business?

Microsoft Layoffs 18,000Each year, around this time, Microsoft tends to announce some sort of restructuring and changes to the way they do business. Last week, many of our peers attended the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference in Washington, DC. Microsoft and their partners leverage this event to showcase the technology solutions that they’re developing and bringing to businesses like yours!

At the moment, Microsoft employs over 130,000 people globally, however, they’ve announced that 18,000 people will be laid off, including 12,500 associated with the Nokia Devices and Services team acquired earlier in 2014. Ultimately, this is a small sliver of their total workforce. And although it’s unfortunate, the layoff may allow for new growth to occur.

What Does This Mean for Your Florida Business? We’ll Find Out in the Next Year or So!

As the layoffs will occur in the next year, we’ll find out soon enough what this means for your business. But as of today, Microsoft is shifting their core focus from devices and services. In fact, Microsoft’s CEO, Satya Nadella, has given employees a new mission to focus on – and it’s all about productivity and platforms.

While moving away from their original mission of a “PC on every desk,” Microsoft appears to be switching gears and making digital work and life experiences it’s main focus. And this can only mean good things for all businesses around the world!

According to Satya Nadella, the layoffs are occurring to help the company realign itself, allowing it to pursue its goal of innovating in terms of mobile computing and the cloud. But we’ll have to wait and see what happens.

Clients Feedback

After switching to Pulse, we were pleased to know that our IT service bills were consistent and fixed fee each month. This part was huge because finally we could plan and budget for our IT service expenses. We also appreciated the fact that Pulse would dispatch experienced technicians based on the issue at hand resulting in faster resolution of problems that arose. One of the most valuable parts of working with Pulse is that I know there will be a quick and appropriate resolution to any issue that we experience. This process gives me peace of mind because like most small businesses, we need quick and efficient responses to any and every system issue we may face. Pulse’s consistency and dependability in service is unparalleled to providers we’ve had in the past.
