General Our vision Microsoft is a technology company whose mission is to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more.

The mobile-first, cloud-first world is transforming the way individuals and organizations use and interact with technology.

Cloud computing and storage solutions provide users and enterprises with various capabilities to store and process their data in third-party data centers.
Mobility encompasses the rich collection of data, applications, and services that accompany our customers as they move from setting to setting in their lives. We are transforming our businesses to enable Microsoft to lead the direction of this transformation, and enable our customers and partners to thrive in this evolving world.
