Microsoft’s acquisition of the startup Agile, which provides software development services to businesses, has created an ecosystem that is growing at a rate that would be impossible to track.
The acquisition of Agile’s cloud-based software-development platform has helped to make Agile one of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S. The company now has more than 600 employees.
The news comes on the heels of the announcement that Microsoft will acquire the startup Gearbox Software and the announcement of the acquisition of software-management company Agile Software.
The new Microsoft-Agile acquisition comes at a time when the cloud computing market is in a frenzy, with Amazon’s Amazon Web Services and Google’s Google Cloud Computing now offering cloud-hosted, scalable and free services.
But Microsoft is still in the early days of the cloud, and the acquisition makes clear Microsoft has its sights set on the space.
“Microsoft is investing in innovation in the cloud,” Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said in an earnings call on Tuesday.
“We’re working with cloud partners and partners across the globe to create a new, more secure and efficient cloud, which will enable us to bring more value to customers, improve productivity and increase our competitiveness.”
The company is also building its own cloud platform, Azure, which it plans to launch in the fourth quarter.
Agile has been developing and selling cloud-as-a-service software since 2012.
Its cloud service was originally a service that offered a platform for developing software on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.
But that platform has since been extended to support other operating systems and platforms, including Android and iOS.
The cloud platform has also been used for developing applications and software for businesses, including its own Azure Marketplace, which enables software to be deployed for free to employees, customers and third-party companies.
The Agile platform has been instrumental in building a growing ecosystem of software developers and developers-focused companies.
It is now the fastest growing platform in the world, according to StatCounter.
Microsoft bought Agile in October 2016 for $350 million, in what was a major acquisition of a startup.
Agilites founder and CEO, Scott S. Burd, says Microsoft has made it a priority to keep Agile open and open source software.
“I want to be clear that the Agile software stack is still a work in progress and will continue to evolve,” Burd said in a statement.
“However, it has been a core component of Agilite’s development process, and has helped create a significant number of successful businesses and businesses that we are excited to partner with to continue our progress.”
Agile is building on the successes of the Microsoft Azure platform, which Microsoft acquired in 2014.
Agili’s cloud platform was designed to enable cloud computing, as well as offer developers the ability to use Microsoft Azure and its offerings for their work.
The technology is similar to Microsoft’s cloud infrastructure for Azure services, but Microsoft has designed it to work with other platforms, not just Windows, OS X or Linux.
Agility has already helped to deliver many of Microsoft’s biggest business initiatives.
The Azure platform is one of Microsofts key business initiatives, with the company announcing in March that it will open up Azure to other businesses.
Microsoft also recently announced a new service called Agile Enterprise, which allows businesses to run Agile apps on Azure and other cloud platforms.
AgILE will continue on its current development roadmap.
Agiles Cloud Platform, which includes its Azure Marketplace service, will remain in development and will be available to companies at the end of the month, Microsoft said in the statement.
Microsoft will continue building Agile and working with other partners, including Agile developers and others, to bring Agile to businesses.
The announcement comes as Microsoft continues to take on the challenge of helping businesses build better and more secure applications.
The search giant is launching a new cloud-powered development platform called Azure Infrastructure for Developers, and it is planning to launch a new suite of apps that it says will make it easier for businesses to build cloud applications and services.
“With Azure Infrastructure, we are creating an open-source and open-stack development platform that is designed to empower developers to build a more secure, scalable, and resilient cloud, as opposed to relying on legacy software to build applications,” Microsoft wrote in a blog post.
Microsoft is not the only company trying to bring cloud computing to businesses in the same way it is helping them to build better, cheaper and more reliable software. “
Today, more than ever, companies need cloud solutions that enable them to work more efficiently and safely, but that also enable them build the best, most scalable, most resilient cloud applications that are open source, scalable with support for new and emerging technologies, and open to the community.”

Amazon has also announced plans to create an open source cloud service
