At Microsoft our mission has never wavered, and today we continue to help people and businesses around the world reach their full potential. It's a tremendous challenge, because what we create has to be the best for every business owner, family, IT manager, developer and partner... not for just a few. But it lets us drive a scale of innovation unmatched in the world.
We know that unless we're tuned in to what our customers and partners care about, we can't create products and services that help them get where they want to go. And getting there needs to be easy, intuitive and familiar. By building products that simplify the way people's lives work takes a lot of the work out of everything they do - creating and connecting, on the job or at play.
We're involved in the world beyond desktops and code, though. Improving and extending access to education, supporting job training and fostering innovation are all part of our work. We protect the online safety and privacy of individuals, families and businesses. And our decades-long, multi-million-dollar support of local and global charities remains strong.
Microsoft continues to raise the bar for ourselves, to deliver on bigger promises. As a result, more than a billion people choose us every day to be part of their dreams and daydreams, their successes today and tomorrow. It's more than we ever imagined... so just imagine what's next.
