Has the internal integration of LinkedIn into Microsoft been a success so far?

It took a while, but it seems like the answer is now Yes.

It appears revenues went a bit sideways after the acquisiton — but then re-accelerated:

So they went to no growth (pretty bad in SaaS) in the quarter right after the acquisition to 37% annualized growth in less than 2 years (very, very impressive). 37% is a very high growth rate at $5b ARR and significantly faster than LinkedIn grew as a stand-alone company before (23%).

It looks like a bumpy integration that struggled at first, but came out strong on the other side.
