THE PER­CENT­AGE DROP IN NEW OF­FICE 365 SUB­SCRIP­TIONS THAT MI­CROSOFT EX­PE­RI­ENCED IN 2016. Mi­crosoft re­cently an­nounced that the sub­scrip­tions to the com­pany’s pro­duc­tiv­ity suite had reached nearly 25 mil­lion. But ac­cord­ing to the num­bers crunched in the four years since the launch of Of­fice 365, new sub­scribers were hard to find in 2016, hav­ing dropped by 62% in com­par­i­son with the pre­vi­ous year. Mi­crosoft CEO Satya Nadella said that the Mi­crosoft suite at­tracted only 4.3 mil­lion new sub­scribers in 2016 (com­pared to 11.4 mil­lion in 2015), but rev­enue from the con­sumer-re­lated Of­fice prod­ucts had in­creased by 22%.
