Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) announced its fiscal second-quarter results on Tuesday, exceeding analysts’ expectations. The increase in demand for artificial intelligence played a key role in driving growth in the tech giant’s cloud computing segment.

Despite the positive report, Microsoft experienced a 1% decline in pre-market today.

The company posted earnings per share (EPS) of $2.93 with a revenue of $62 billion. These figures surpassed the EPS of $2.77 and revenue of $61.14 billion anticipated by analysts polled by Investing.com.

A significant contributor to Microsoft’s strong performance was its cloud business Azure, which saw a 30% growth, exceeding analyst predictions of 27.5%.

Additionally, Microsoft’s productivity and business processes sector reported a 13% increase in revenue, reaching $19.25 billion. The personal computing segment also witnessed a notable rise, with revenue increasing by about 19% to $16.89 billion.
