Microsoft’s Australia strategy is the latest example of Microsoft expanding into a new market.
Last month, Microsoft unveiled plans to expand its Australian business in 2018.
The strategy was part of a broader shift from the company’s main Australian operations to its new regional business in Melbourne, in partnership with online retailer Amazon.
The Australian division of the company was launched in May 2017 with a focus on small businesses, but the company also plans to launch an online store in 2019, the same year it aims to expand to a new area, Australia.
Microsoft is also looking to expand into new markets, including China and India, with a new focus on the Philippines and Brazil, according a spokesperson.
Microsoft has previously launched micro-service offerings in the US, but it has not expanded into Australia.
