“Intelligent Cloud” Drives Strong Microsoft Fiscal Year-End

Recently, Perficient’s chairman and CEO Jeff Davis sat down with CRN to talk about Microsoft’s solid end to its fiscal year 2017 – which was driven strongly by the cloud. “Revenue from Microsoft’s intelligent cloud segment increased 11 percent during fiscal fourth quarter to $7.4 billion. That included Azure’s near doubling of sales—97 percent growth—during the quarter,” CRN reports.

“Their infrastructure roots have helped them become very competitive in the market and the plans they’ve committed to in terms of capital investment in global infrastructure. In addition, because they have robust applications, and have openly partnered with other app vendors to stand up solutions in Azure, they also have greater breadth and depth to provide Tier 1 support to cloud customers compared to other cloud vendors.” – Jeff Davis, Microsoft Finishes Strong In Fiscal 2017 As ‘Intelligent Cloud’ Takes Off
