Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella recently announced that Microsoft is “in the lead” with new cloud-based AI workloads, positioning the company to lead the AI era. This focus on AI workloads has helped drive cloud growth for Microsoft, as evidenced by the company’s recognition as a Leader in the 2022 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud AI Developer Services.
Through the Microsoft AI Cloud Partner Program, the company is providing partners with a comprehensive portfolio of investments for all partner business models at every stage of the customer lifecycle. This is fueling partner growth and profitability in the era of AI, as Microsoft continues to lead the way in cloud-based AI workloads.
However, some analysts have expressed concern that Nadella’s “AI obsession” could slam Microsoft Cloud. Despite this, Nadella remains confident in Microsoft’s ability to lead the AI era, stating that “we will lead AI era”.
While Microsoft still lags behind Amazon in cloud infrastructure, the company’s focus on AI workloads is positioning it for success in the future of cloud computing. With Nadella at the helm, Microsoft is poised to continue leading the way in cloud-based AI workloads and driving cloud growth for years to come.
