As many people are still working from home, the need for software that makes their lives easier is overwhelming.
Microsoft suffered various disruptions with its Office 365 tools and #Azure Cloud, disabling users for multiple hours. The only ones affected were those who tried to log into the systems, not those already connected.
According to the company, the #Office 365 problem was caused by a software change. After the disruption, the software was restored to a previous version. However, the quick fix failed to restore the service. After a couple of hours of mitigation steps, users started noticing improvements.
In the middle of a pandemic, social services and platforms that support remote working are essential to all kinds of workers and companies, especially those offered by Microsoft, whose #Teams app had 75 million daily active users, as reported in April.
Following the news, Microsoft stock price traded 0.11% lower.
