2022.01.26 02:06 AdRepresentative7600 Microsoft`s Challenges in Office Product Development
Introduction Microsoft is one of the most successful companies in the world today. It is among the few companies that have reported profits year after year since their foundation . However, the company faced many challenges in designing and developing its flagship products Office 4.0, Office 95, Office 97, and Office 2000 . Microsoft had to address these challenges to guarantee better products according to the customers’ tastes and preferences. The subsequent products had to be on schedule unlike the first products . Analysis The major challenge Microsoft faced when working on office 4.0 was the failure to keep schedules. The developers worked to attain certain features and functions of the software without considering the time factor and schedule . In addition, the different teams had various goals. This complicated the entire company vision. It is theoretically and practically impossible for a company with diverging visions within to achieve its corporate vision . In the case of office 95, the teams working on the application disagreed frequently slowing the development process . Microsoft came head-on with a potential competitor as well. In 1992, Lotus Corporation introduced the Smart Suite that was a plausible threat to Microsoft office applications . In addition, windows shifted its bit architecture to 32-bit from 16-bit bringing up a possible compatibility challenge to development teams. Microsoft office 97 faced the same predicament in addition to the relatively larger size . The office 97 application was 30 megabytes larger than its predecessor, office 95 was . The application took a lot of hard drive space. For Office 2000, the major challenge Microsoft had to bypass was the internet . Microsoft felt that the internet was a threat to its products. Customers Satisfaction Microsoft had to address the above challenges to keep the customers satisfied . The company worked on several strategies. For office 4.0, Microsoft upgraded customers’ old application versions free of charge when new versions were launched . Microsoft emphasized keeping the set schedules for application development and launch . To achieve this, Microsoft developers decided to re-architecture previous versions of the applications. In this case, the developers just added new features and functions to the previous programs . In addition, Microsoft did surveys to understand the customers’ tastes and preferences. This assisted the company to make drastic changes during office 97 development . The design and development of all applications were done in one place. In addition, Microsoft introduced well-defined common goals, applicable to all design and development teams . Microsoft also changed the design and development process to meet specific schedules for the design, development, and launch of the applications. Quality Development Microsoft introduced the milestone concept to develop quality applications on schedule . Developers were to write codes and compare them with the master code every day. The developers did simple tests on the codes to confirm each part was okay . It was now possible for the developers to work within the stipulated deadline . The disadvantage of the milestone concept is that it was possible to waste because of the many checks. Office 2000 The milestone concept was a good idea for Microsoft to manage the design and development of office 2000 . This guaranteed better design and development of the application. However, it seems that all the preparation in design and development was faulty. The office 2000 failed to meet the client expectations and the set schedule . It is therefore certain office 2000 failed. If the milestone strategy was well planned and rolled out, office 2000 would be more successful.

2022.01.26 02:06 DaMilkiness 23 [M4R] had an extremely rough day and cannot sleep. Was hoping someone could take my mind off it.
2022.01.26 02:06 ymsoldier420 Wits end, please help, any advice is appreciated.
Our little guy is 11 months old and has hit an absolute wall of sleep issues over the last 2 weeks.
Babe was sleeping through the night most of the time and was usually very easy to put down. Supper, bath, pj's, stories, small night feed, cuddle, put down drowsy but not quite fully asleep.
Now putting him down is completely out of the question and he throws full blown tantrums for 2-3 hours crying/screaming hysterically until we pick him up and rock him to sleep, immediately wakes and starts the tantrum again when we set him down.
He is and always has been a very restless/flippy floppy sleeper. Bedtime at 6:45-7pm wake up at 7-7:30am...
we have been trying to transition to 2 naps from 3 over the last month or so but it's been very hit and miss as lots of times he only naps for 45 mins to an hour which starts a cycle of overtired so he ends up with 3 short naps more often then not.
Honestly have no idea what to do/try at this point, wife is very against cio (and I dunno if I could do it either lol). I feel like the short 3x naps is a problem at this age and he should be down to 2x bigger naps but he barely ever stays down for longer then 45-60mins (partially because he always seems to poop during nap and wakes up from that).
Literally any advice would be appreciated.

2022.01.26 02:06 sasori_irl Eu odeio minha "precisosa "
é a cherolaine mais feia que eu já vi. Ela é mais escura que minha pele, é tão gorda que marca qualquer calça justa que eu coloque e o "negócio " ainda é grande, fora os lábios pequenos que não são pequenos. Sério, é a parte mais feia do meu corpo tanto que quando transei com meu ex ele riu. Eu me sinto horrível pq a cirurgia que existe pra deixá-la menos feia é uma fortuna e tô sem um puto no bolso. Não consigo usar biquini/maio na praia. Quando eu tô acima do peso ela fica maior ainda. Pra piorar achei uma pequena bolinha nela e tô me preparando psicologicamente pra me "abrir" pra alguma ginecologista.
Eu odeio o meu corpo

2022.01.26 02:06 Key-Rabbit-5515 I watched a picture of Jesus materialized on my garage wall. There was an evil presence very strong in my home during that time… also I was not making the best choices in life. Today I’m very Christian. I’m just wondering what does that mean when that happens? What is it called? Is evil? Or godly?

2022.01.26 02:06 Elegant-Matter4515 Life is labor; what’s your labor of love?
Being alive takes work. If you could follow your bliss (vs being coerced by capitalism) what kind of ‘work’ you would put your mind/body/spirit towards to keep life thriving here on earth? I love food and plants. I’d love to one day work full time practicing permaculture, living with the land, and feeding myself and the people in my community. That kind of thing takes hard labor but I know I would be happy.

2022.01.26 02:06 AngleWyrmReddit Determining the weight of an unfair coin from observations
I was watching this video, supposedly part two of a three-part series, but the author never did get around to making the final part which he advertised as answering the question set up in part one. The question asked "2 defects found in 100 samples; what can we say about the probability of a defect?"
He got as far as "What's the probability density function that describes the value h after seeing a few outcomes?" but that was two years ago.
