‘I don’t hear of businesses looking to their IT budgets or digital transformation projects as the place for cuts,’ Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said Tuesday on the company’s earnings call.

On AI, GitHub, Power Platform

In AI, we continue to see strong usage of Azure Machine Learning. The number of monthly inference requests increased 86 percent year over year with companies like PepsiCo using the service to predict which products are most likely to sell.

And our Azure OpenAI service brings together advanced language models with the enterprise capabilities of Azure, helping companies like CarMax turn customer reviews into customized content for shoppers.

Now to developer tools. From Azure DevOps and GitHub to Visual Studio, we have the most comprehensive and loved developer SaaS (software-as-a-service) service.

Increasingly, every new developer project starts with our tools. Visual Studio has more than 31 million monthly active users, including most of the Fortune 500.

And GitHub usage is increasing among both independent developers and startups, as well as the world’s most established enterprises. Ninety percent of the Fortune 100 use GitHub.

In fact, Mercedes-Benz, for example, is using GitHub Enterprise to provide a unified development platform for more than 20,000 employees to build, ship and maintain software.

Now on to Power Platform. Power Platform has become the leading business process automation and productivity suite for domain experts in every industry.

Power Platform surpassed $2 billion in revenue over the past 12 months, up 72 percent year over year, making it one of the fastest growing businesses at scale.

Power Apps is the market leader in low-code, no-code app development. And Power BI has more than 200,000 customers.

And our acquisition of Minit adds new process mining capabilities helping organizations identify bottlenecks and opportunities for operational efficiency.
