 Dear Friends,

Sometimes it feels like old news, but Microsoft beat analyst expectations yet again during their second fiscal quarter.  They continue to demonstrate impressive growth in the cloud, and are steadily eroding the market share of AWS.  At Emerset, we see an increasing number of organizations using the Microsoft cloud, whether for their Office 365 subscriptions, or by utilizing Azure or other cloud services.

We would like to use our quarterly newsletter to announce that our CCO and company co-founder, Daryl Ullman, will periodically provide content on Computerworld.com, a leading online magazine serving an audience of 12 million enterprise-level IT managers in 47 countries.  Daryl’s extensive knowledge and experience in the software industry make him uniquely qualified to provide insights and perspective on a wide range of topics.  He has written two blogs to date, which can be found below:

Why is Microsoft so successful?

We hope you enjoy the reading and look forward to future articles by Daryl on Computerworld.com.

Is Azure™ the King of the Cloud?

We have been predicting for some time that while AWS is considered the market leader in cloud computing, Microsoft has a tremendous advantage with Azure and Office 365 among enterprise customers.
