DARKReading: Assessing Cyber Risk (Aug. 25th)
Microsoft News

Our annual partner conference, Microsoft Inspire, just concluded. The conversations I had with Microsoft's partner community echo those I have had recently with leaders from both established organizations and earlier-stage enterprises

Leaders across industries share a commitment to innovation as the only path forward through uncertainty in global markets, especially as they continue to strengthen their security posture, reduce their carbon footprint, inject more visibility into their supply chains, and promote more inclusive prosperity in the communities where they operate.

I see this shared commitment as part of a trend I call digital perseverance. It is the ability of organizations to thrive despite risk when they harness and wield digital technology to achieve their business goals and do more with less. Here are examples of organizations that have embraced digital capabilities to persevere in collaboration with Microsoft.


Microsoft Corp. announced the following results for the quarter ended June 30, 2022, as compared to the corresponding period of last fiscal year:

  • Revenue was $51.9 billion and increased 12% (up 16% in constant currency)
  • Operating income was $20.5 billion and increased 8% (up 14% in constant currency)
  • Net income was $16.7 billion and increased 2% (up 7% in constant currency)
  • Diluted earnings per share was $2.23 and increased 3% (up 8% in constant currency)

"We see real opportunity to help every customer in every industry use digital technology to overcome today's challenges and emerge stronger,' said Satya Nadella, chairman and chief executive officer of Microsoft. 'No company is better positioned than Microsoft to help organizations deliver on their digital imperative - so they can do more with less.'
