When PowerPoint was released by Forethought, its initial press was favorable; the Wall Street Journal reported on early reactions: The New York Times reported: Forethought makes a program called PowerPoint that allows users of Apple Macintosh computers to make overhead transparencies or flip charts.
Forethought would remain in Sunnyvale, giving Microsoft a Silicon Valley presence. Forethought was first to market with a product in this category. This was at first an alternative to overhead transparencies and 35mm slides, but over time would come to replace them.
Please assume that we stay ahead in integrating our family together in evaluating our future strategies—the product teams WILL deliver on this. The move from bundling separate products to integrated development began with PowerPoint 4.
Succeeding versions of PowerPoint introduced important changes, particularly version New development techniques shared across Office for PowerPoint have made it possible to ship versions of PowerPoint for Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, and web access nearly simultaneously,[ citation needed ] and to release new features on an almost monthly schedule.
Jeff Raikes, who had bought PowerPoint for Microsoft, later recalled: PowerPoint was used for planning and preparing a presentation, but not for delivering it apart from previewing it on a computer screen, or distributing printed paper copies.
Robert Gaskins, one of the creators of PowerPoint, says he publicly demonstrated that use for the first time at a large Microsoft meeting held in Paris on February 25,by using an unreleased development build of PowerPoint 3.
Although the PowerPoint software had been used to generate transparencies for over a decade, this usage was not typically encompassed by common understanding of the term. In contemporary operation, PowerPoint is used to create a file called a "presentation" or "deck"  containing a sequence of pages called "slides" in the app which usually have a consistent style from template mastersand which may contain information imported from other apps or created in PowerPoint, including text, bullet lists, tables, charts, drawn shapes, images, audio clips, video clips, animations of elements, and animated transitions between slides, plus attached notes for each slide.
A smartphone remote control built in to PowerPoint for iOS optionally controlled from Apple Watch  and for Android  allows the presenter to control the show from elsewhere in the room.
In addition to a computer slide show projected to a live audience by a speaker, PowerPoint can be used to deliver a presentation in a number of other ways: In practice, however, presentations are not always delivered in this mode.
In our studies, we often found that the presenter sat at a table with a small group of people and walked them through a "deck", composed of paper copies of the slides.
In some cases, decks were simply distributed to individuals, without even a walk-through or discussion. Other variations in form included sending the PowerPoint file electronically to another site and talking through the slides over an audio or video channel e.
Another common variation was placing a PowerPoint file on a web site for people to view at different times. They found that some of these ways of using PowerPoint could influence the content of presentations, for example when "the slides themselves have to carry more of the substance of the presentation, and thus need considerably more content than they would have if they were intended for projection by a speaker who would orally provide additional details and nuance about content and context.
In an analyst summed up: How come PowerPoint is everywhere? Robert Gaskins, who was responsible for its design, has written about his intended customers: I did not target other existing large groups of users of presentations, such as school teachers or military officers.
I also did not plan to target people who were not existing users of presentations Our focus was purely on business users, in small and large companies, from one person to the largest multinationals.News • 40 Years After Reform: Advocating for Sustainable Trade in China amfori participated in an international forum on China’s reform and opening-up and discussed on improving the business environment with new changes of the globalisation.
