This infographic is one I came across in late 2012 that has been used by the Microsoft recruitment team to show the wide and varied careers available at the company. Whether it's search, cloud, social, NUI, gaming, developer tools, phones, Windows, Kinect - there is something for everyone at Microsoft. Check out careers.microsoft.com for more.
To embed this infographic on your blog simply copy and paste the code below. A higher res PDF version is also available [update] and I just added a link to the high res JPEG from the image above...which a few peeps had pointed out I'd missed ;)

Apparently Microsoft doesn't make any server products anymore... Or is that just not where the cool kids go?
TBD - a good catch, Windows Server isn't on there but Azure is. and as for cool kids, check out this project blogs.msdn.com/.../running-weather-research-forecast-as-a-service-on-windows-azure.aspx
"Windows 8 Phone", not Windows Phone 8? Also, "IE9 makes experiencing the web fast..." -- not IE10?
How can I get a printed poster of this?
Microsoft doesn't believe in server products anymore. That's why it's not on the map. They want to push everyone to the cloud. That's also why Steve Clayton's response wasn't about server products. Just like WPF/SL, the Windows desktop, etc. server products are dead. Microsoft won't invest in these technologies much anymore because that's not the direction they think the world is going. Too bad their efforts with Windows Phone and Windows 8 haven't shown they've made the right choices nor listened to their customers. Of course according to them it's just a matter of their customers not liking change.
@notsurprised - we don't believe in server products? one look at the annual report would tell you how wrong that statement is.
can you qualify/clarify this statement? "according to them it's just a matter of their customers not liking change"
@randy - grab the PDF, should be high enough res to print
Very nice, though I agree with other posters that it's surprising to see the absence of Windows Server, SQL Server, and other enterprise technologies. I'd love to see Microsoft's PR or recruiting department keep this up to date ("Windows Phone 8 release in the fall"?) and publish it on a regular basis.
very happy to read such informative blog about Technology....Thanks for sharing such interesting blog:-)likewise www.youtube.com/watch has also mentioned lot of stuff regaridng technology.
This graphic does a great job of capturing the essence of Microsofts design ethos. Maybe if they let a few products from the competition on campus people would be exposed to simple, clean and easy on the eyes.
This is the old logo of windows Azure!
And not a single line about the Dynamics product range? :-)
The infograph is great, except it missed the 4th largest Microsoft product: SQL Server. www.microsoft.com/.../details.aspx
