Why is Microsoft buying LinkedIn for $26.2bn? CEO Satya Nadella explains Monday, June 13, 20160

Why is Microsoft buying LinkedIn for $26.2bn? CEO Satya Nadella explains

Microsoft just announced that it is buying LinkedIn, the professional social network, for a whopping $26.2bn in one of the biggest tech deals in history. The news, announced on Monday afternoon, instantly sent LinkedIn's share price soaring by 50 percent. Microsoft said LinkedIn boss Jeff Weiner would stay in charge and report to Satya Nadella, for whom this is the first big deal since he became CEO. The two companies have closely aligned motives: to connect professionals and improve business processes. LinkedIn is a network of 433m global professionals, with 1.5 million users in Ireland alone. 

In a letter to staff, Nadella sums it up thus: "Think about it: How people find jobs, build skills, sell, market and get work done and ultimately find success requires a connected professional world." He suggests the two could be integrated, with a tailored LinkedIn newsfeed based on projects that are relevant to you, or Office suggesting LinkedIn connections.

In recent months, there has been a lot of talk about how small to medium-sized business owners can level the playing field with giant, global enterprises. The cloud has been one of the suggested methods of boosting profits and productivity. However, does the cloud equate to a lot of unsubstantiated hype or does it measure up to expectations? 

According to the recent Odin SMB Cloud Insights Report - The small and medium business (SMB) cloud services market will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.4 percent in the next three years from $25.2B in 2015 to $34.9B by 2018

The current cloud services market represents more than 7 million SMBs that spend, on average, $3,181 on cloud services annually. 

Let’s take a look at the main reasons for this dramatic projection of growth and usage?
