Microsoft’s emerging market expansion plan

Following my earlier blog about SAP’s expansion objectives, I hear Microsoft has announced its own plans targeting emerging market countries.

One analyst describes the what and why of the Unlimited Potential program. It certainly seems more realistic a growth plan than what SAP is hoping for.

As an aside, I see from the Microsoft announcement that Orlando Ayala is now part of an Emerging Segments Market Development group. He used to be part of the Dynamics group and I didn’t know until now that he had left. If it means he has left, then that is another departure that the Dynamics group will sorely miss, and shows that Microsoft’s focus is definitely off Dynamics and onto other areas, like Office and Search.
