Microsoft to buy Intentional Software

Microsoft office
Microsoft office
This new corporate acquisition aims to further improve Microsoft's capabilities and its ability to deliver new tools and services as a part of the company's productivity offering.
Codrut Nistor,

Microsoft continues its long stream of corporate acquisitions with Intentional Software, a company founded back in 2002 by Charles Simonyi. Simonyi worked at Microsoft in the past, where he oversaw the creation of a few products that are now flagship apps in the office sector of the market, such as Word or Excel.

According to the blog post published earlier today by Rajesh Jha, "This acquisition will build on the work we’re already doing to deliver the tools necessary to be productive in an information-rich world. Intentional Software’s technology and talent will enhance our existing capabilities and strengthen our ability to add new tools and services to Microsoft’s robust productivity offering."

As it usually happens when such agreements are signed, the financial terms of the deal have not been disclosed. Since this acquisition is subject to regulatory approval, we expect it to be finalized by the end of the year. We will get back to it once that happens, so stay tuned.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
