Microsoft (MSFT) has refreshed its cloud infrastructure software lineup. A service pack for Microsoft's System Center management software allows cloud apps/resources within to be centrally managed, and for different IT hardware resources to be simultaneously delivered - VMware is moving in a similar direction. Also, Microsoft's Azure cloud platform has been updated to support new monitoring and hosting services. Microsoft continues to make Azure's support for hybrid clouds a big selling point as it competes with the likes of Amazon and Salesforce.

    I dont think this is a game changer for MSFT... But I like MSFT at this price.

    Hi, I really didn't pay much attention to CRM as the price is way out of my range plus they don't pay a dividend. Today they are taking a beating on their stock. I'm retired (72) & was told to buy stocks that pay a good dividend & a Blue chip one @ that. SOOOO thats one reason I'm into MSFT INTC & CHU. I agree with you on price of MSFT(now) as I pd. more for it when I bought it. I guess we just have to wait & see right?? Have a great day. Kat.
