what are the margins? 2%
a few years from now doubt they will have made any headway. When they seen the infrastructure costs, client aquisition costs and finally the margins they will bail.They are doing this only to gain usershare. The cloud is not a profitable industry, I would open up a 7-11 first as it would bring greater returns. Hiding this loss with acquisitions and layoffs over the year is commonplace and the expected path for the next few years.

Pricing Model
"Microsoft announced a raft of enhancements Wednesday to its cloud portfolio, including new storage and machine learning capabilities for Azure and a revamped set of Office 365 Business subscription plans."

Michael, they know that their business model is success. That's why they have changed the pricing model with hike in price.

Re: Delve?
Interesting question. Maybe it's more accurate to say that Office Graph is the machine learning technology, and that Delve is just an app that relies on things Office Graph can do.

Delve?
Does Delve really qualify as a machine learning tool? It sounds more like a way to set up user-specific interfaces.

Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
