Cloud platform Azure is a key component in the future strategy of Microsoft – not only as a place to store information, but also as a medium for software operation of large companies. Recently, Microsoft announced that it has made a huge leap in machine learning technology, and will deliver this service in Azure.

Next month Microsoft will release a preview version of the cloud services Azure Machine Learning, with which companies can deploy solutions for forecast analysis.
