Yesterday, there was quite a bit of buzz about Microsoft after a Goldman Sachs analyst downgraded Microsoft from “Buy” to “Neutral” and lowered their target share price by US $4. As reported in the article, the analyst highlighted Microsoft’s continued weakness in the mobile and tablet space as factors in the downgrade.
Microsoft’s future is a bit of a conundrum. One one hand, Microsoft is having success with newer versions of its established offerings such as Windows 7, SharePoint 2010, Exchange 2010, Windows Server 2008 R2 and others.
But what about new growth opportunities in the mobile space and in Cloud computing?
I will join my colleague, John Pescatore, in interviewing Steve Ballmer live on the main stage on Thursday morning, October 21st at Gartner’s upcoming US Symposium conference in Orlando.
So, what would you ask Steve Ballmer?
Do you believe Microsoft has lost its relevance in a world of mobile devices connected by Cloud-based services?
