Presenting slides in front of a big audience is just one application of PowerPoint, and probably not the one that is most commonly used. Here are a few others:

  • Corporate knowledge database
  • Product catalogue
  • Project management and planning tool
  • Word processor
  • Story boarding tool
  • Group brainstorming tool
  • Animation editor
  • System design tool
  • To do list and meeting minutes recording tool

A 1980s presentation design tool ended up being the operating system that power most communication inside a company.
