Cross-functional opportunities thrive with cloud innovations

At the beginning of this month, Microsoft announced its latest game-changing developments to its cloud-based platform, Azure.

Microsoft’s Corporate VP of AI & Research, Joseph Sirosh, announced ‘new milestones’ when he unveiled the official public preview of Microsoft’s Custom Vision Service, on its Azure Portal, as well as updates to its search capabilities.

In the announcement Joseph led with, ‘at Microsoft, we believe everyone—developers, data scientists and enterprises—should have access to the benefits of AI to augment human ingenuity in unique and differentiated ways. For years, Microsoft researchers have been pushing the boundaries of computer vision, making systems able to more accurately identify images. The following milestones represent one of the many examples of how we’re integrating our research advances into our enterprise services.”

This latest announcement is just one in a long line of developments which demonstrate Microsoft’s commitment to being a cloud-centric business.

Similarly to Google, it is no surprise that Microsoft continues to invest, as it witnesses growth and profitability of the cloud. Microsoft said, “Azure again saw the most significant margin improvement this quarter” and Azure premium services revenue grew more than 100% for the fourteenth consecutive quarter (Tech Republic).

Microsoft’s development of .Net Core (a new lighter .Net) was the start of its push to be the main platform for complex containerised cloud-based apps and microservices. By refactoring .Net for the new opensource and microservices world, Microsoft delivered an appropriate platform for new app architectures, with a decade of developer experience (Infoworld).

While advancing and evolving into the world of microservices, Microsoft also had to venture into the world of open-source to keep pace with its competitors AWS and Google. Now Microsoft is not only one of the largest open source software contributors in the world, but also a keen advocate. In 2017, Microsoft was second only to Google in the top contributor of open source code to GitHub (Tech Republic).

Microsoft is a “deeply open source company’ and ‘strongly believes in the philosophy of opensource – it’s a community” according to Microsoft Azure’s CTO Mark Russinovich (Banking Tech).
