Microsoft acquisitions and investments


Infographic showing the acquisitions and investments of Microsoft, done as a tube map with each coloured line representing a different industry for each acquisition or investment.  Where stations meet is where industries overlap, the bottom key displays information about the locations on the map of stations (or companise) along with the year of acquisition or investment.  It was the most hair pulling exercise I have undertaken, however totally rewarding when it came together.

I close up showing how the different industries flow out and link together. Created as part of a series which includes Ebay – shown here and Google – shown here (note this both are from last year and require updating).
