Microsoft in the cloud thanks to the “cloud” – ICT news

Microsoft delivers good quarterly results in nearly every region the company is active in, but especially the “cloud” that makes the weather good.

Overall, Microsoft reported revenue of $49.4 billion in the quarter ending in March (up 18 percent year-over-year) and net income of $16.7 billion (up 8 percent).

Looking at the company’s different verticals, Microsoft stands out all over the place, but insists that it’s its cloud revenue that stands out, with a 32 percent increase to $23.4 billion. There is no doubt that there is a separate section here, given that Microsoft’s activities in the cloud relate to several segments.

More LinkedIn, more ads

The Professional & Productivity Solutions division (Office, LinkedIn, Dynamics) had revenue of $15.8 billion, representing annual growth of 17 percent. LinkedIn (34% higher turnover) and “server and cloud services” (+29%) stand out.

The “Most Personal Computing” division, which includes Windows, OEM Windows, Xbox, Bing, ads, and Surface, among others, generated $14.5 billion in revenue, up 11 percent. Here, the top highlights were “search and news ads” (+23 percent), the Surface (+13%) and “Windows commercial products and cloud services” (+14 percent).

Overall, Microsoft appears to have had an excellent quarter across the board, with even the declining sectors doing better than last year. CEO Satya Nadella claims that Windows 11 is running faster than its corporate predecessors.

However, these comments are all relative six months after launch. Until recently, Lansweeper said that only 1.44% of users (professionals) have migrated to Windows 11. This is not unusual because many companies have a habit of waiting before upgrading. But she cautions against allegations of rapid adoption.
