What is Microsoft Azure?

Azure offers a lot more than Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) capabilities to your organisation. Azure is an expanding set of cloud-based solutions, services and applications that are designed specifically to help your organisation scale and grow to meet your digital and transformational needs and challenges.

Using a range of tools and frameworks, Microsoft Azure allows you to host, build, manage, optimise and deploy applications at scale for your organisation, in the cloud. By taking small steps or even big ones with Azure the world of bots, improved data analytics, AI and machine learning are all opened up to you and your digital transformation ideas. Let us help you explore.

Increase productivity and lower costs.

Azure enables you to efficiently develop and manage your applications. Moving to Azure will eliminate the expense and cost of setting up on-premises servers and data centres, so your organisation can focus its resources where they matter most.

Consistent application development.

With Azure, you can simplify the development and deployment of your business applications. Azure provides a consistent framework for programming, data services, app services and DevOps tools to support your organisation’s requirements.

Unified identities across your organisation.

Azure supports you in centrally managing all your identities, across your organisation, and is a key part of a well architected security model and approach and to protect against unauthorised access to your systems.

Operate seamlessly with Hybrid Cloud.
