Microsoft to analysts: consumers are the gateway to Cloud, enterprise usage

At Microsoft's financial analyst meeting, executives outline exactly where Microsoft's successes originate.

  • Microsoft chief operating officer Kevin Turner opened Microsoft’s 2013 financial analyst meeting by disclosing that more than 55 percent of Microsoft’s revenue comes from the enterprise, a number that he said Microsoft rarely discloses.

  • More than 55 percent of Microsoft’s business comes from the enterprise, Turner said, with 20 percent from the consumer market, 19 percent directly from OEMs, and 6 percent from small and medium businesses. Turner said that each field employee generates a total of $2.7 million per employee, a new high.

  • In the past year, Microsoft increased deployed users of Office 365 by 350 percent, Turner said.
