Founded in 1975, Microsoft is among the largest enterprise-technology companies in the world and is the largest enterprise-cloud vendor in the world. It has been #1 on the Cloud Wars Top 10 rankings for more than 2 straight years. Playing at all 3 layers of the cloud—IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS—Microsoft is able to address what it calls “the entire digital estates” of its business customers around the world. Since Satya Nadella become CEO in 2014, Microsoft has surged to the top of the cloud-computing industry by combining a broad and deep product lineup, an early and totally uncompromising commitment to hybrid-cloud computing, and highly innovative go-to-market strategies. Those include some unprecedented situations in which Microsoft first helps its corporate customers build unique applications or other solutions around Azure, and then helps those corporations sell their unique IP to other companies, thereby turning IP into revenue.
