Microsoft Azure

Analysts have a bullish outlook this year for Microsoft’s cloud business, fresh off its surprise JEDI contract award as part of the DoD’s digital modernization strategy for the military -- a big win over perceived frontrunner AWS.

Wedbush believes while No. 1-ranked AWS clearly won the first phase of cloud spending, Microsoft Azure is poised to win the next wave and will significantly narrow the gap with AWS in the coming years. Wedbush said it’s already seeing a stronger-than-expected Microsoft Azure deal flow in the field, and Azure is experiencing an acceleration of enterprise spending for public and hybrid cloud deployments, “especially with the momentum through its all-important partner channel.”

“Redmond remains in an enviable position heading into 2020 on the heels of its cloud success, as it continues to fire on all cylinders around Office 365 and its Azure strategic vision,” Ives said. “Redmond is poised to win the majority of the next phase of cloud deployments versus the likes of Amazon. To this point, we continue to believe the ripple effect from Microsoft's landmark JEDI deal victory…will be felt for years to come on both the government and enterprise fronts, and thus indicates a seminal moment in the cloud battle between these two stalwarts.”

Microsoft’s partnerships with Oracle and VMware announced last year are seen as key moves to make Azure appeal to a larger segment of the enterprise market.
