The Transformation of Microsoft

Microsoft has been going through a transformation over the years. It has been slow, but the changes are dramatic if you haven’t been paying attention. Microsoft no longer makes a ton of money on the Windows platform. Far from it. Just take a look at the areas where Microsoft made the most money this past year based on revenue.

  1. Server and Cloud Services (Azure)
  2. Gaming (Xbox)
  3. Microsoft Office
  4. Windows OS

Windows OS is only 10% of Microsoft’s total revenue, and it grew a paltry 5% despite the Windows 10 release last year. Sales on Azure on the other end, grew a whopping 140% more than last year.
