Microsoft posted a profit of nearly $ 11.7 billion. That was 8.4 billion dollars a year earlier. Turnover in the reporting period amounted to $ 36.9 billion, from $ 32.5 billion a year ago. All three of Microsoft’s operational pillars showed growth.
The growth of Microsoft in recent years mainly comes from the cloud services, under the name Azure.

The other major Microsoft branch, which focuses on software, saw sales increase to $ 11.8 billion.
