Technology is developing rapidly and constantly, and Azure is the key to maintaining your business’ competitive edge, offering truly agile projects that develop in line with emerging technology. Driven by Microsoft’s blue-sky thinking, the infinitely scalable architecture of the Azure platform means that the possibilities are endless, and Azure is the perfect complement to Enterprise SharePoint development, providing an unprecedented speed of delivery of large, globally scaled enterprise SharePoint farms within mere hours.
Benefits of Microsoft Azure
Azure supports the broadest range of operating systems, programming languages, tools, frameworks, databases and devices, which ensures that any services and applications you create will work with and on any device.
Azure’s integrated tools, pre-built templates and managed services make the management of enterprise, mobile, Web and IoT apps faster, while still allowing you to use the skills and technologies you already possess and are familiar with.
Azure runs on a worldwide network of Microsoft-managed data centres across 19 regions, which offers a range of options for running applications and ensures great customer performance.
Microsoft has made an industry-leading commitment to the protection and privacy of your data, and was also the first major cloud provider to adopt the new international cloud privacy standard, ISO 27018.
Previously, if you wanted a reliable, robust and scalable hosting platform, you would need to purchase the hardware, have a suitably skilled and trained team and have constant ongoing support.
With Azure, you simply add services to a control panel and they are automatically provisioned for you. This means that minimal CAPEX is required to get even the largest projects off the ground, and cost benefits can be seen immediately.
Additionally, should a project prove not to be viable in the long run, it can easily be terminated without the need to write off expensive hardware or decommission large data centres. Further, Azure’s pay-as-you-go services can be scaled up or down in line with your usage requirements, so that you only pay for what you are using, thereby optimising cost efficiency.
