Mary Jo Foley wrote in March that Microsoft says it is adding 20,000 new SharePoint users a day:
“Microsoft has been adding 20,000 SharePoint users per day, every day for the last five years, according to Jared Spataro, Director of SharePoint product management. That means 7.3 million new SharePoint users every year.
Microsoft hasn’t gotten a lot more granular about SharePoint sales beyond that. We heard in 2009 that SharePoint was a $1.3 billion business for Microsoft and that there were more than 17,000 customers with a total of more than 100,000 million SharePoint users out there. The company isn’t releasing updated user totals or numbers of SharePoint servers sold. (I asked.)“
Wow, 100,000 million users (on a Microsoft Office population base of 600 million). Now I’m sure there’s a problem with that number …
