The platform powers all of Microsoft’s key businesses – including Azure, Microsoft 365, Xbox, and the Windows Store. The platform also powers the licensing business for millions of customers, enabling them to use Microsoft software and services across cloud, on-premises, and hybrid scenarios. Whether renting a movie, buying a game on Xbox LIVE, purchasing an app on a Windows, signing up for a Microsoft 365 subscription or paying for Azure services, you are using the Core Commerce Platform.
