Microsoft's 16 billion-dollar businesses
As part of a set of stats Microsoft published this week, the company revealed it now has 16 different businesses currently at an annual $1 billion (or more) run rate.
(This doesn't mean businesses with $1 billion in profits; it means businesses contributing $1 billion or more in revenues.)
In 2010, Microsoft had eight billion-dollar businesses: Xbox, SQL Server; System Center; Unified Communications; SharePoint; Developer Tools; Dynamics (ERP & CRM); and Online display and search advertising. Last year, SharePoint crossed over into the $2 billion per year category. And the Server & Tools business claimed six of Microsoft's billion-dollar babies.
