Fortune 500

Briefly in April, Microsoft’s valuation topped $1 trillion, making the enterprise technology giant the third U.S. company after Apple and Amazon to pass the milestone. It’s another feather in the cap for CEO Satya Nadella who has pushed Microsoft to focus on its fast-growing Azure cloud computing business rather than its legacy Windows operating system. The cloud pivot has paid off well for Microsoft, which had $110.4 billion in revenue during its fiscal 2018, a 14% gain from the previous year.
