In their most recent earnings call, Microsoft beat revenue expectations but posted the lowest rate of revenue growth in five (5) years. Microsoft’s FY23 Q1 total revenue was $50.1B, up 11%. Microsoft Cloud revenue grew 24% to $25.7B, and for the first time exceeded 50% of Microsoft’s overall company revenue. Their go-forward success will continue to be directly tied to Microsoft Cloud, which includes Azure, Office365, LinkedIn, Dynamics 365, Power Apps, and other cloud solutions.
In this podcast, our Microsoft Practice Leader, Adam Mansfield, discusses how customers can leverage Microsoft’s clear focus on getting more adoption and utilization of Microsoft’s cloud, security solutions, Teams, Dynamics 365, and LinkedIn. He also explains why more customers should push for the more costly all-in cloud bundle, Microsoft 365 E5. Lastly, he covers what customers need to do to ensure they appropriately prepare for their upcoming renewal negotiations.
