It’s results time again and Microsoft released earnings for Q4 FY17 on July 20. As always, there are nuggets to be minded. The billions of revenues generated by Azure and Office 365 are the highlights for me, even if Microsoft did not update the number of Office 365 users.
Microsoft’s Q1 FY17 results contain the news that the annualized revenue run rate for commercial cloud products is now over $13 billion. Perhaps even more interesting is the news that the new official figure for Office 365 monthly active users is 85 million. At this rate, the 100 million barrier will be cracked in early 2017.
