Alignment to the Azure Platform
Orbus Software believes that the cloud-based Azure platform will be a key growth driver for Microsoft going forward, as companies around the world are looking to lower costs by adopting cloud-based services.

While server products and cloud services revenue grew by 12% driven by growth in MS SQL Server, adoption of the cloud-based azure platform resulted in 93% growth, in its revenues.
