Microsoft has joined other big tech companies in turning to layoffs to overcome the more challenging times. It announced cutting over 10,000 jobs and posted on fiscal second quarter earnings exceeding the Wall Street estimate.

According to the reports, Microsoft's solid financial results depend heavily on the cloud side of its business. Also, the most recent quarterly results are no exception. As per the reports, out of the total $52.9 billion recorded, 22.1 was from the 'Intelligent Cloud' segment. It is the highest figure of the third quarter so far, translating to $9.5 billion of operating income.

Microsoft’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Satya Nadella commented – "The world's most advanced AI models are also coming together along with the world's most universal user interface that is the natural language which will create a new era of computing." He added that Microsoft Cloud is the platform of choice which help customers get the most value from their digital spending and innovate for the next generation of AI.

Older reports indicate that the third-quarter revenue forecast in the cloud business would be $21.7 billion to $22 billion. It is just below the analyst average forecast of $22.14 billion, as predicted by Refinitiv. And in the second quarter, the revenue in that segment will almost beat expectations at $21.5 billion.
