ABSTRACT
The article reports on the plans of Microsoft to broaden the availability of its online services for e-mail and collaboration software. Microsoft also decided to offer a free download of a software called Search Server 2008 Express that allows companies to search files and documents inside their network which will directly compete with rival Google's Search Appliance. The steps taken by Microsoft are efforts to prevent Google, Salesforce.com and other start-ups from aggressively targeting Microsoft's traditional business customers with web applications.
