Microsoft has reached a new milestone: more than half of enterprise devices are now powered by Windows 10.
In concrete numbers, there are now 200 million commercial Windows 10 devices. According to the Microsoft officials, this includes SMBs as well.
In 2009, Windows 7 was released; however, at the time, several enterprise customers decided against taking the leap. In some cases, they only started the transition process a couple months before Windows 10 was released in 2015.
Overall, the Windows OS is still a significant piece of Microsoft’s overall business revenue. Apart from that, Microsoft has also generated a sizable chunk of revenue from Surface, gaming, and advertising – the segment has brought in $10.7 for the quarter. Moving down the ladder, we have “Productivity and Business Processes”, which brought in $9.8 billion, followed by “Intelligent Cloud”, which brought in $8.6 billion.
According to a piece of information that came from a top company representative: allegedly, Microsoft’s cloud services are bringing in less than a quarter of the company’s annual revenue. Given the size of the spotlight their cloud services is getting, this would probably come as a surprise to many.
Interestingly, Dynamics ERP/CRM brought in $2.5 billion in revenues; half of that is from Microsoft Dynamics 365.
This quarter marks the 155 million mark for Microsoft Office 365 Commercial subscribers. On the other end, we have the Office 365 consumer subscribers, totalling 32.5 million. This quarter marks the growth of their server products as well as the growth of the company’s gaming revenue which increased by 44%.
