Make the most of the cloud

The Microsoft cloud platform, expertly managed

In a competitive business landscape, being able to innovate quickly and run day to day operations efficiently can give your business the edge. Moving your IT to the cloud can bring huge practical and operational benefits, but it can also help you deliver new services faster. To enable such agility, you need a cloud platform which can provide much of the heavy lifting and uses familiar tools and frameworks which can be adapted for your needs. Microsoft Azure is just that.

Azure is Microsoft’s cloud computing platform for business. It lets you move as much of your IT to the cloud as you require and also supports a hybrid solution, where part of your IT remains on your premises and part in the cloud.

Services can be scaled up or down as your business requires. The platform facilitates a range of IT essentials such storage, backups and identity management. It works seamlessly with Office 365 and many other applications.

Azure also provides an ever-expanding set of cloud services to help solve a whole range of IT and business challenges. It gives the freedom to build, manage and deploy applications using popular tools and frameworks. Services such as databases, data warehouses, identity management, security tools, use of Artificial Intelligence services and much more.

Simplify IT management and do more

Azure provides a suite of software, platform and infrastructure services, extending organisations a number of benefits:

  • Improves time to market – with Azure, the heavy development work has been done for you; you simply need to configure the services to your business needs

 

  • Decreases IT time – Azure’s platform-as-service requires substantial reduction in IT administration time, allowing teams to focus on application innovation rather administrative tasks

 

  • Cost optimisation – investing in new infrastructure is always a large investment of capital expenditure. With Azure this is no longer an issue. Instead of replacing your servers every five years you essentially rent your server from Microsoft for a smaller monthly operating cost. You also mitigate the on-costs of heating, cooling or powering your servers as Microsoft does it all for you.
  • Consistency and robustness – Azure delivers an application platform that ensures consistency and simplicity. Many IT tasks, like patching, updating, testing, networking, and others, are built in

 

  • Enhanced IT security – Azure is the only cloud service that offers continuous security health monitoring. Microsoft invests over a billion dollars every year in security, including the security of the Azure platform, so that your data and business assets can be protected

 

  • Support for hybrid cloud – Azure facilitates a hybrid cloud deployment. This way you can take advantage of your on-premise resources as well as the benefits of the Cloud.
