p Microsoft is doubling down on the cloud, using its BUILD 2017 developer event to hammer home the idea that in a mobile- and cloud-first world, data crunching comes first.Hopes of new Surface hardware were dashed at day one of the annual conference, with the software behemoth instead focusing on Cortana, Artificial Intelligence, the IoT, and how best to organize the cloud when the levels of data being generated are growing exponentially.The day one keynote kicked off with Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella announcing that there are now 500 million active Windows 10 devices being seen every month.The milestone comes as Office 365 sees 100m monthly active commercial users; 90-percent of the Fortune 500, Microsoft says, now runs on the company’s cloud.The traditional paradigm of cloud computing, Nadella points out, has been data getting shuttled from wherever it’s created – be that a factory floor, your car or home, or a hospital or farm – up into a centralized server somewhere.Microsoft’s next phase, though, is a more intelligent cloud, recognizing that often the data wants to stay where it’s created.
