As Microsoft attempts to acquire viral video app TikTok's US operations, analysts speculated on a few other names that might be on the tech titan's shopping list. The list of 10 potential Microsoft acquisitions includes Dropbox, Slack, Twilio, Docusign and VMware, which Dell is considering spinning out, plus startups Mmhmm and Superhuman. Keep in mind, Microsoft's largest acquisition to date was its $26.2 billion LinkedIn deal, and while it appears Microsoft might be willing to pay more for TikTok, multibillion-dollar deals still are pretty uncommon for the company.

While Microsoft's bid to acquire viral video app TikTok's US operations may have come as a surprise, there are a few other big deals that industry-watchers think are a little more predictable.  Business Insider compiled a list of companies analysts say Microsoft could try to buy, based on which buys could bolster key Microsoft businesses such as its Microsoft 365 suite of business software applications, Azure cloud computing business, or Dynamics customer relationship management software. It's worth noting most of the companies on the list cost significantly more than Microsoft has ever paid to acquire any company. Microsoft's largest acquisition to date was its LinkedIn deal worth $26.2 billion. Morningstar analyst Dan Romanoff named big companies like Twilio and Docusign as potential targets, for example, but said he generally expects Microsoft to stick mostly to smaller deals. "I would really expect [Microsoft] to continue to do deals at $1 [billion] or less that generally won't mean much to casual observers," he said, "but will serve to add important functionality to one of its existing product areas." Here are 10 companies, aside from TikTok, that experts say Microsoft could acquire:Mmhmm Valuation: Unknown Mmhmm is building an app intended to allow people to virtually share their screen in a video call and remain in the picture at the same time, as Business Insider's Katie Canales writes, and was founded by by ex-Evernote CEO Phil Libin. The company is still very young, and just raised $4.5 million from investors including Sequoia Capital and cofounders of Instagram, Twitter, and Eventbrite. Creative Strategies analyst Carolina Milanesi thinks Mmhmm could be a good acquisition target for Microsoft to build out its popular Teams workplace chat app and "help with the huge number of kids who like to do videos while playing Minecraft." LoopUp Market cap at the time of this writing: $125.33 million (trades on the London Stock Exchange) LoopUp offers a subscription-based conference and remote meeting service. Raul Castanon-Martinez, a 451 Research analyst, told Business Insider the London-based company could help Microsoft bolster its Teams communications app. "Microsoft has been on the offensive in the past few years looking to counter the challenge from emerging [software as a service] providers such as Slack and Zoom that have disrupted the communications and collaboration space," Castanon-Martinez said. "A key area that could support this strategy is to expand the telephony capabilities in Teams." LoopUp recently launched a Microsoft Teams integration, and Castanon-Martinez said Microsoft could acquire the company to compete against key industry players like Cisco and RingCentral.   Superhuman Valuation: $270 million as of June 2019, per PitchBook Superhuman builds an app intended to help users empty their inboxes in what it bills as "the fastest email experience ever made." Unlike most other email apps, it's not free — rather, it requires a $30/month subscription to use. In return, users get access to all kinds of email decluttering tools, including a conversational view that makes email look like a text message, as well as powerful keyboard shortcuts. Creative Strategies analyst Carolina Milanesi said Superhuman could help Microsoft "modernize" its Outlook email app. Dropbox Market cap at the time of this writing: $9.62 billion Dropbox builds a popular cloud-based file storage service. Microsoft already has a similar service with its OneDrive – but it wouldn't necessarily be acquiring Dropbox for its features. "With over 500 million users, Dropbox doesn't necessarily add volumes to its current OneDrive capabilities, but it brings an enormous loyal user base and its revenues with it," Futurum Research analyst Daniel Newman said. Slack Market cap at the time of this writing: $16.96 billion Popular corporate workplace chat app Slack is a big competitor to Microsoft's own chat app Teams. "Teams has exploded and Slack has floundered a bit," Futurum Research Daniel Newman told Business Insider. "[Microsoft] could acquire it to grow its base, enhance Teams and block Zoom from becoming more directly competitive to the full [Microsoft] Teams suite." Still, there's a lot that makes a Slack acquisition appear unlikely. There seems to be bad blood between the two and tensions could be rising after Slack recently filed an antitrust complaint against Microsoft in the European Union. Not to mention that acquiring Slack might attract the wrong kind of attention from lawmakers amid broad antitrust scrutiny of the entire industry. Meanwhile, Amazon's cloud business Amazon Web Services and Slack just inked a big partnership, perhaps indicating that the two are cozying up. Crowdstrike Market cap at the time of this writing: $20.95 billion Microsoft could buy cybersecurity company Crowdstrike, RBC Capital Markets said in its 2020 software outlook report, and combine the company's products with its own to provide security to customers of all sizes, from small businesses to large enterprises. RBC in the report published in January said Microsoft could sell the combined security product on its own or as a bundle through the company's Office 365 cloud-based suite of productivity tools. Microsoft's security spending, RBC noted back then, has reached $1 billion annually. RBC analyst Alex Zukin confirmed the firm still believes Crowdstrike is a potential Microsoft acquisition target as of August. "Generally we think the company remains a very keen and opportunistic acquirer of very high quality assets at compelling price points," he told Business Insider. Microsoft, for its part, has recently taken big steps to renew its push into the cybersecurity market, positioning itself to take advantage of the boom in remote work by helping to provide tools to help secure and manage a distributed workforce. Twilio Market cap at the time of this writing: $37.29 billion Twilio builds a cloud communications platform intended help developers write apps that can send text messages and make phone calls. "Twilio makes a lot of sense because it is broad based with a seemingly endless array of use cases," Morningstar analyst Dan Romanoff told Business Insider. Microsoft could add "name brand" acquisition targets such as Twilio, Romanoff said, to its Microsoft 365 suite of business software applications, Azure cloud computing business, or Dynamics customer relationship management software. But with Twilio valued so richly at about $37 billion, Microsoft would likely have to pay a hefty price for Twilio. "It's hard to imagine MSFT doing a deal that big," Romanoff said. Twilio has been a favorite among analysts' potential Microsoft picks. RBC Capital Markets in a report earlier this year said that Twilio would be a good buy for Microsoft in order to embed Twilio's voice, messaging and email communication into Microsoft's consumer and business applications — and bring along the more than 7 million developers who use Twilio. Piper Sandler said around the same time Microsoft could acquire Twilio could enhance Microsoft Azure's developer ecosystem. Piper Sandler did not respond to a request about whether their view of a potential Twilio acquisition has changed since January. DocuSign Market cap at the time of this writing: $39.58 billion. DocuSign helps companies sign and manage agreements electronically. It's one of the companies Morningstar analyst Dan Romanoff says Microsoft could acquire and add to existing businesses such as Microsoft 365 suite of business software applications, Azure cloud computing business, or Dynamics customer relationship management software. "DocSsign makes some sense also given the greenfield opportunity and DocuSign's broad appeal," Romanoff told Business Insider. But the price to acquire DocuSign would be steep and likely more than Microsoft wants to spend on acquisition of this kind. Romanoff expects Microsoft will mostly do deals for less than $1 billion. Workday Market cap at the time of this writing: $42.55 billion Workday's human resources and financial management platform is used by 50 percent of Fortune 500 companies, according to RBC Capital Markets 2020 software outlook report. Buying Workday would "provide [Microsoft] entry into what we believe is going to be the most durable cloud growth market outside of the public cloud," which it said is cloud enterprise resource planning.  Analysts at Piper Sandler agreed earlier this year that Workday could be a potential acquisition market as Microsoft only has less than 5% of the so-called "human capital management" market that Workday is in. RBC analyst Alex Zukin confirmed the firm still believes Workday is a potential Microsoft acquisition target as of August, but Piper Sandler did not respond to a request about whether its analysts still see the potential for a deal happening between the companies. VMware Market cap at the time of this writing: $60.49 billion Dell is considering "a potential spin-off of its 81% ownership" of VMware, the software giant it bought in 2015 through a merger with EMC. Futurum Research analyst Dan Newman said Microsoft could consider swooping in and acquiring VMware. "With hybrid cloud being hot and VMware being one of the most utilized software suites to bridge on-prem and cloud, this could be a game changer for Azure and its hybrid cloud ambitions," Newman told Business Insider. VMware could be valued as much as $100 billion in a potential acquisition, Newman said, so "there won't be a lot of suitors."  The future of VMware is a hot topic, with Business Insider's Ben Pimentel reporting that it could be a good fit for Amazon, IBM, Oracle, or Google, too.
In-flight internet provider Gogo is trying to sell its commercial airline business as it continues to lose money during the COVID-19 pandemic, the company announced on Monday. CEO Oakleigh Thorne said on a conference call that the company has had “extensive discussions with multiple parties” and that he “feel[s] optimistic that a deal may happen.” A sale would be a huge change of course for Gogo, which pioneered in-flight connectivity. But the attempted sale comes as Gogo, like many other businesses in the air travel industry, is struggling. The company, which provides in-flight connectivity to major airlines like Delta, United, and Alaska, lost $86 million on $96 million in revenue during the second quarter of 2020. Its sessions per...

Uber and Lyft will have to treat their California drivers as employees rather than independent contractors, a judge ruled Monday. The two companies were sued by the California attorney general to enforce a new labor law passed earlier this year by the state that requires gig workers to receive the same benefits and treatment as full-time employees. Uber and Lyft both plan to appeal Monday's ruling. The companies have argued that reclassifying drivers as employees could wreak havoc on their businesses. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Uber and Lyft have to treat their California drivers as employees rather than independent contractors, a California judge ruled Monday. The ruling, first reported by Bloomberg, would force the companies to provide legally mandated benefits, including health insurance and sick leave to drivers. The California state legislature passed a law this year known as AB5 that requires gig-work employers to extend more benefits to workers. Both Uber and Lyft faced a lawsuit from California Attorney General to enforce the law after they denied that drivers classify as employees. Several other California agencies joined that lawsuit against the two companies, arguing that they were "willfully misclassifying" drivers to avoid paying higher wages. Rideshare Drivers United, a driver advocacy group, claims that Uber and Lyft owe more than $1.3 billion in payments to drivers in California pursuant to AB5. Driver advocacy groups that supported AB5 heralded Monday's ruling as a victory. "If the pandemic has shown anything, it's that all workers deserve affordable health insurance, paid sick leave, a minimum wage, overtime pay, and access to a social safety net. Today's ruling means Uber and Lyft must put an end to their lawless actions that deny benefits and protections to drivers who urgently need them," Uber driver Mekela Edwards, a member of driver advocacy group We Drive Progress, said in a statement to Business Insider. The two companies plan to appeal the ruling, which they said would put a strain on their revenue and potentially force them to shut down their apps in the state. San Francisco Superior Court Judge Ethan Schulman paused the injunction on Monday's ruling for 10 days to give the companies time to appeal. Californians will vote on a ballot initiative in November that would explicitly classify app-based drivers contractors rather than full-time employees if passed. In a statement to Business Insider, a Lyft spokesperson said the company believes that most drivers would prefer to be designated as independent contractors. "Drivers do not want to be employees, full stop. We'll immediately appeal this ruling and continue to fight for their independence. Ultimately, we believe this issue will be decided by California voters and that they will side with drivers," the spokesperson said. An Uber spokesperson said in a statement to Business Insider that the company plans to appeal the ruling. "The vast majority of drivers want to work independently, and we've already made significant changes to our app to ensure that remains the case under California law. When over 3 million Californians are without a job, our elected leaders should be focused on creating work, not trying to shut down an entire industry during an economic depression," the Uber spokesperson said. Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi has publicly acknowledged that drivers suffer from a lack of benefits, but asserts that drivers benefit from the flexibility afforded by independent contractor status. Khosrowshahi argued in a New York Times op-ed Monday that lawmakers should require gig work employers to provide some benefits to workers, but not the full benefits associated with full-time employees. "Our current employment system is outdated and unfair," Khosrowshahi wrote. "It forces every worker to choose between being an employee with more benefits but less flexibility, or an independent contractor with more flexibility but almost no safety net."Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: What makes 'Parasite' so shocking is the twist that happens in a 10-minute sequence

Advertising revenue for some influencers has taken a hit recently, as brands cut marketing budgets to save on costs and avoid appearing tone-deaf during the coronavirus pandemic. But the influencer economy isn't going away. Many creators have shifted their focus to alternative revenue streams that have allowed them to continue to earn a living, showing how much the influencer business has expanded in recent years. In an exclusive webinar with Business Insider, YouTube creators Ruby Asabor and Katy Bellotte shared how they had adapted their businesses during the pandemic and the ways digital creators are earning a living in 2020.  Asabor (176,000 YouTube subscribers) and Bellotte (477,000 subscribers) also walked us through how they built their multifaceted businesses into full-time jobs than span different platforms and content categories. "Right now, I have about 11 income streams altogether," Asabor said. When it comes to brand deals, the pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement have shifted the way influencers look at brand collaborations. Bellotte, for example, said that she was taking extra precaution when choosing what companies she wants to endorse.  "The first step to any partnership these days has been to do intense research on the brand," Bellotte said. "Of course I only want to be sponsored by brands and endorse products that I use and like, but then even if I like the product, if the brand itself doesn't have a strong foundation and doesn't have the values that I look for, I don't work with them."

Veteran tech executive John Chambers, once the longtime CEO of Cisco, said the coronavirus crisis which forced businesses to embrace a remote workforce has shown that working-from-home can lead to more productivity. But he also cautioned that the work-from-home trend can backfire for businesses that embrace it blindly, including through leading to less cohesive organizations. "When work from home gets carried to an extreme, most companies really struggle with it," he told Business Insider. Click here for more BI Prime stories. In the early stages of the coronavirus pandemic, former Cisco CEO John Chambers pivoted easily to working from his Silicon Valley home, adapting to back-to-back business meetings via video conferencing instead of in-person.  "It's fun learning how to do this with hundreds of people," he told Business Insider in an interview in March. "I'm pushing everybody to go digital and video everywhere. Because unfortunately, I think we're going to need that in this nation for a while longer than we anticipate." But six months into the coronavirus crisis, Chambers — who now leads the venture capital firm, JC2 Ventures — warns that companies need to be deliberate when approaching a more permanent shift to work-from-home. Tech giants have quickly embraced remote work, with Facebook, Twitter, and Atlassian even telling employees that they can work from home indefinitely. But Chambers cautioned that blindly embracing the trend on a permanent basis could weaken an organization's culture and even lead to less productivity. "When work from home gets carried to an extreme, most companies really struggle with it," he said in an interview in early August. Instead, he recommends a "blended version" of remote work where companies still maintain physical workplaces.  He envisions a system where employees are able to "pick a location where they can work and maybe come in one or two days a week." "One extreme or the other will probably not work," he said. The benefits of a remote workforce are undeniable, Chambers said: Many businesses thrived in a situation where employees and executives "no longer had to drive an hour to work" and videoconferencing has become a quick and convenient way to communicate, "For the first time, your customers and your partners were really accessible that way, whereas before if you wanted to do a video session with a partner, it was a work of art to get set up," he said. "So productivity did take off well." Wall Street analysts and investors have started tracking the shares of tech companies that benefiting from the pivot to remote work. The so-called "work from home stocks" coverage different tech players that have made it easier for businesses to adapt to remote work, including Microsoft, one of the dominant cloud platforms, Slack, the collaboration and communications platform, and Docusign, the virtual signature platform. But "culture and communications" are important in building a strong company, and this could be harder to do if most or all employees are working remotely. Chambers cited the experience of Cisco, the tech behemoth he led for two decades and which, during his time, allowed some employees to work remotely for extended periods. "It worked well for a period of time, especially if they were already Cisco employees into our culture," he said. "But after about two to three years, most of them did not work well. The people got further away. They weren't as familiar with the culture. They didn't get to know their peers. Then you get lonely." To be sure, companies have shown that it's possible to maintain a highly-productive workforce even if everyone is working from home. But Chambers said there's always a risk that some employees can feel disconnected from the rest of the workforce "where you don't see what your peers are doing." "Then I think for a number of these areas, productivity will drop," he said Other tech executives have voiced similar concerns about the working-from-home trend. "The tribe is really important," Nutanix CEO Dheeraj Pandey told Business Insider in a May interview, noting the importance of having employees routinely gathering in a workplace.  But he also noted how the work-from-home trend has taken off, saying, "Employees have tasted blood and they like what they see in working from home. They believe it's commute-free. They believe it's highly-flexible." Pandey said his company is exploring options "without drinking the Kool Aid of everything remote." Like Chambers, he cited what appears to be an emerging consensus around a "hybrid" model in which employees are able to work remotely while maintaining some workplace operations. It's the framework embraced by ServiceNow whose CEO Bill McDermott told Business Insider recently, "It's going to be a hybrid world." Got a tip about a tech company?
