    Microsoft history: Beyond the Ticker

    From Windows and Azure to Word and Xbox, Microsoft’s (MSFT) products have made it a household name and tech powerhouse. In 2023 alone, the company generated over $211 billion in revenue, and currently boasts a market cap of more than $3 trillion, making it the wealthiest publicly traded company in the world. What led to that success? Beyond the Ticker takes a closer look at the company's biggest moments. 1975 Bill Gates and Paul Allen founded Microsoft in 1975 to develop software for the Altair 8800, an early personal computer. 1980 Microsoft signed a contract with IBM (IBM) to bundle Microsoft's operating system, an early version of its MS-DOS, with IBM computers. 1985 Microsoft announced the first version of Windows, an operating system composed of a graphical user interface running on top of MS-DOS. 1986 On March 13, 1986, Microsoft kicked off its IPO, raising $61 million at $21 per share. 1995 On August 24, 1995, Microsoft launched Windows 95. The software would go on to be wildly popular among PC consumers and enterprise customers. 2000 Steve Ballmer took the reins at Microsoft, succeeding Bill Gates as the company’s second CEO. 2001 The company jumped headlong into the console gaming wars with the debut of the first Xbox. 2008 Microsoft dove into the cloud computing space with its Azure service. 2014 Ballmer retired as Microsoft CEO, turning over the position to Satya Nadella. 2019 Microsoft’s market cap crossed the $1 trillion mark for the first time. 2023 Microsoft kicked off its push into generative AI with a $10 billion investment in ChatGPT developer OpenAI, and the debut of several generative AI products including its revamped Bing search engine and Copilot software. The company is now riding the AI hype train as far as it can, adding generative AI software to everything from Office to Windows and everything in between. From tech giants to retail titans, Beyond the Ticker is a historical series that takes a deep dive into some of Wall Street's trending companies and how they transformed into the financial icons they are today.

    Exclusive-OpenAI's Altman pitches ChatGPT Enterprise to large firms, including some Microsoft customers

    OpenAI Chief Executive Sam Altman has hosted hundreds of Fortune 500 company executives in San Francisco, New York and London this month where he and other OpenAI executives pitched AI services for corporate use, going head to head in some cases with financial backer Microsoft, attendees told Reuters. Altman directly addressed more than 100 executives in each city at the events, according to attendees who spoke on the condition of anonymity. At each event, Altman and chief operating officer Brad Lightcap offered product demonstrations, including ChatGPT Enterprise, the enterprise grade of its famous chatbot that generates text from simple prompts, software to connect customer applications to its AI services known as APIs, and its new text-to-video models.
