Microsoft: $9.5 Billion for R&D in 2010.
Microsoft has traditionally reserved an extremely consistent and constantly increasing budget for research and development year after year, and 2010 will make no exception to this rule. According to Microsoft Chief Operating Officer Kevin Turner, who keynoted the CeBIT Global Conference in Hannover, Germany, on March 4, 2010, the Redmond company will spend no less than $9.5 million for R&D in 2010 alone. Still, the figure is only a part of Microsoft’s overall evolution strategy, which, according to Turner, revolves around a three-pillar vision involving three screens (mobile, PC and TV), the cloud, and on-premise solutions.
