Microsoft is likely to bring more attention to its cloud services under Azure with Nadella's visit. Earlier this year, Microsoft posted $11.6 billion profit mainly driven by growing demand from customers seeking a shift from computing tasks to cloud-based systems. Over the years Azure has evolved to integrate smarter Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning features.
As we all know Microsoft is one of the top company investing in quantum computing. To refresh the memory the Indian government had proposed Rs 8,000 crore over the next five years to push domestic research in quantum computing in its Union Budget 2020.
Nadella's visit to India coincides the visit of US President Donald Trump. As of now, we don't know whether Nadella will hold meetings with the Indian leadership or not.
