Microsoft Corporation is engaged in developing, licensing, and supporting a range of software products and services, by designing, manufacturing, and selling devices, and by delivering relevant online advertising to a customer audience worldwide. In addition to selling individual products and services, the company offers suites of products and services. Its products include operating systems for computing devices, servers, phones, and other intelligent devices; server applications for distributed computing environments; productivity applications; business solution applications; desktop and server management tools; software development tools; video games; and online advertising. The company also designs and sells hardware, including PCs, tablets, gaming and entertainment consoles, phones, other intelligent devices, and related accessories. The company offers cloud-based solutions that provide customers with software, services, and content through the Internet by way of shared computing resources located in centralized data centers. Cloud-based computing services that the company offers include Bing, Microsoft Azure, Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online, Microsoft Office 365, OneDrive, Skype, Xbox Live, and Yammer. The company also provides consulting and product and solution support services, and trains and certifies computer system integrators and developers. The company conducts research and develops advanced technologies for future software, devices, and services. Segments The company’s segments include Devices and Consumer (D&C) Licensing, D&C Hardware, D&C Other, Commercial Licensing, and Commercial Other. D&C The company’s D&C segments develop, manufacture, market, and support products and services designed to increase personal productivity, help people simplify tasks and make more informed decisions online, entertain and connect people, and help advertisers connect with audiences. The company’s D&C segments are made up of D&C Licensing, Computing and Gaming Hardware, Phone Hardware, and D&C Other. D&C Licensing The principal products and services provided by the D&C Licensing segment are Windows, including original equipment manufacturer (OEM) licensing (Windows OEM) and other non-volume licensing and academic volume licensing of the Windows operating system and related software; non-volume licensing of Microsoft Office, comprising the core Office product set, for consumers (Office Consumer); Windows Phone operating system, including related patent licensing; and certain other patent licensing revenue. The Windows operating system is designed to empower individuals, companies, and organizations to simplify everyday tasks through operations across the user’s hardware and software. The versions of Office included in the company’s D&C Licensing segment are designed to increase personal productivity through a range of programs, services, and software solutions. Growth depends on its ability to add value to the core product set and to continue to expand the company’s product offerings in other areas, such as content management and collaboration. Office Consumer revenue is impacted by sales to customers that buy Office with their new devices and by product launches, as well as the transition to Office 365 Consumer, its subscription-based cloud service that provides access to Office plus other productivity services. Office 365 Consumer revenue is included in the company’s D&C Other segment. The Windows Phone operating system is designed to bring users closer to the people, applications, and content they need. Windows Phone revenue associated with this contractual relationship is reflected in D&C Licensing. Windows Phone revenue also includes revenue from licensing mobile-related patents. Competition: The Windows operating system faces competition from various software products and from alternative platforms and devices, primarily from Apple and Google. Competitors to the versions of Office included in D&C Licensing include global application vendors, such as Apple and Google. Windows Phone operating system faces competition from iOS, Android, and Blackberry operating systems. Computing and G
