Microsoft is also investing to ensure that Azure tooling is making developers more productive around artificial intelligence and machine learning, Nadella said. "One of the things that you'll see in agile ML advances is the no-code ML tools," he said. Meanwhile, "it's been fantastic to bring [the] same rigor of development and engineering and deployment to machine-learning practices," Nadella said.

When it comes to cognitive services, "we continue to take the breakthroughs that we have across all of the various cognitive services and make them available to developers," Nadella said. Key advances are being made in areas such as speech recognition, he said.

Meanwhile, "the other service that is really getting tremendous momentum is these conversational interfaces that are being built using Bot Framework," Nadella said. "In fact, 3,000 new bots, or conversational apps, are getting created using this framework each week."

Ultimately, it's of "strategic importance for every business out there to build their own conversational apps," he said. "Just like you build websites, just like you build mobile applications, [bots] become very important for every business out there, to be in control of their own destiny when it comes to this new platform of conversations."

The online customer conversation is "perhaps one of the most important pieces of data" for businesses and developers to harness, Nadella said.
