    Microsoft owns no less than 40% of the world, the IT world that is. The Redmond based software maker is no longer limited to the Washington state in the U.S. and has grown to the point where its global presence can easily impact the international IT market. Microsoft’s oscillations have the potential to reverberate and influence the IT market at a global level. This because the Redmond company, together with the ecosystem of partners built around its business have a massive footprint on no less than 82 countries around the world.

    According to an independent study performed by IDC and
    commissioned by Microsoft, the Redmond company and its ecosystem account for no less than 14.7 million jobs worldwide. Now Microsoft itself has approximately 80,000 employees, and in this context, the rest of the workforce is connected to its partners. At this point, it is important to understand that the Microsoft ecosystem is composed of all companies that build, sell or distribute solutions designed to integrate with the software maker's platforms.
