At July 2007’s Financial Analyst Meeting Steve Ballmer presented on “Driving Shareholder Value“. Steve Clayton and Long Zheng referred to the “FY08 and beyond” slide as it effectively provided a roadmap to many of Microsoft’s products – this is no mean feat for a single slide.
You can view the entire presentation yourself though you may find as I did that the text is a little small hence I’ve re-worked it below and included links to each of the technologies too. There’s also an on demand webcast too – Click here for Steve Ballmer’s session – to hear Bill Gates click here
Note: In the interest of clarity I have not included the prefix “Microsoft” for the product names.
