Dalian Watson won from Microsoft $5 million of investment, this is Microsoft after August $20 million investment wave, September soft $20 million investment of China’s software after the third investment enterprise. Relative to the first two times, the investment amount is small, Microsoft had to throw 10 million, and as long as the 5 million huaxin. And the investors and investee showed what a variety of, also quite worth thinking the whole industry. Microsoft software market this year China frequently make moves, intent? Who will be the next Microsoft investment goals?
Who will be the next one?
Let us first to see Microsoft in China investment and cooperation of the track, Microsoft this years in China’s development experience in China make it twists in the market to be more and more intelligent honed in its China to seek win-win investment and cooperation with many worth ponder way of the place.
First is good at of the rhythm of the investment cooperation. Microsoft and dalian the investment project should be huaxin Microsoft with the national development and reform commission signed in 2000 RMB 6.2 billion of cooperation part of the project. In 2000, Microsoft framework agreement signed that investment in China after the sincerity of cooperation, and the large number of money no rush to vote in, but first start training and outsourcing the performance of the contract, the cause was the industry to Microsoft "play virtual" criticism of the way. In fact, the software industry in China for funds, technology and talents, experience a also cannot little. After signing with the development and reform commission, Microsoft began large-scale Chinese software talents training plan, lasted for several years, from software developers, software architect at various levels of training to information supervisor, at the same time bring outsourcing orders, and China’s each important software enterprise to technology project cooperation and so on also made a very considerable performance. In the training and cooperation in the process of gradual, Microsoft on one hand supporting the related enterprise, as promoted the whole software talents for the industry environment of the mature; On the other hand also slowly found out the strength of the relevant domestic enterprise and enterprise character, so as to further determine the strength of cooperation and means. Until the second half of the year in 2005, Microsoft just started the massive infusion of funds: wave is $20 million, $20 million, dalian soft huaxin $5 million and so on. From training, the project cooperation to mass infusion of funds, until finally a community of interests, Microsoft is progressive, in China the mode of operation of the market environment is also with the change of market changes and maturity to constantly adjust. And in today’s market background, Microsoft has realized that, for the government and industry market sourcing, and domestic software enterprise form community of interests is their best choice.
Microsoft’s practice appeared everywhere a commercial company’s smart: is that a blueprint for cooperative sincerity, and also in the rhythm of cooperation and operating the guarantee that their interests. And in a market only cooperation both sides achieve a win-win situation, it will be possible to long-term development down.
The second is Microsoft’s cooperation object choice. In 2005, Microsoft in China’s cooperation entered the overall fund intervention period. According to relevant information revealed that Microsoft in China investment would amount to 100 million dollars. This is a very good news, but to expect the China investment enterprise software Microsoft it and not optimistic blindly. Microsoft every investment enterprise is a rational and careful, because the server has a strong wave market and industry and the advantages of application of Microsoft chosen; China is the national team soft software, industry market unique background, especially noteworthy, the two companies and Microsoft in the.net platform have years of cooperation history. Even have the advantage of a certain area, can give Microsoft bring new growth space software enterprise, Microsoft also need to undertake long time won’t be the understanding of the "combination". At this point the dalian Watson is a good example, with the Microsoft had not worked together, although dalian is China’s largest huaxin software export enterprise, China "software industry international demonstration city" sign enterprise, and cooperation is ministry of information industry "do media", the dalian municipal government to give support to help, and Microsoft has experienced two years of understanding and many break-in, finally and Watson formal alliance. So for the cooperation of other Chinese software to enterprise that, in addition to their own unique advantages outside, "love" is also inevitable stage, so vigorously for first and Microsoft "love" is also very important. And who will be the next phase of the Microsoft investment objects, can be in Microsoft has worked with strength software enterprise in search for answers.
Chinese software companies need???????
In an interview, dalian LiuJun huaxin general manager said the Microsoft’s investment they only receive half the money, on the one hand, the hope that more holding, on the other hand also hope in equity structure, keep several foreign companies investing proportion equilibrium.
Dalian Watson was established in 1996, is domestic earlier into Japan, Europe and America international market software enterprise, the original shareholders include the NEC, NTTDATA, Hitachi software three Japanese enterprise, overseas shareholders are all Japanese background. Microsoft to capital injection huaxin structure more reasonable, but the fund is not they expect all, they are more hope that through the Microsoft technical strength and brand influence, improve the competitiveness of the outsourcing market. A Microsoft do shareholders, for their competition order undoubtedly is compelling.
The reporter interviewed another outsourcing enterprise of dalian assistant to the general manager, she thought for outsourcing software enterprise that, order and talents are they two of the most important link. Relative to character, money is not the most need. So in and Microsoft’s joint venture, huaxin "money degree" handle more measured, on the one hand, actively, on the other hand, not much.
Reporter recently interviewed wave software CEO WangBaiHua, wave using Microsoft’s software technology and money for wave software product structural readjustment and transformation to the reporter made a deep impression. The software industry of China in the bigger and stronger international process, each facing the problem of each are not identical, but Microsoft and China several software enterprise use of joint venture and cooperation have performed mature and wisdom, already more and more comforting.
