Modernize & Innovate with Azure Cloud
Whether you’re new to the cloud, considering cloud or already loving the cloud, our Microsoft-certified experts are here to consult and collaborate with you, so you understand the best way for your organization to leverage cloud capabilities, securely and cost-effectively.
Microsoft Azure provides a comprehensive collection of cloud-based alternatives to onsite hardware and services, and is a powerful, constantly evolving solution offering a broad portfolio of tools to build and develop apps, store and secure your data, or run an internet-hosted enterprise.
This is all without the cumbersome job of installing and managing hardware or server software. Plus, with its pay-as-you-go and pay-for-what-you-use model, you can set predictable costs and put the expensive hardware refresh cycles behind you.
What are the Benefits
What are the Benefits of a Public Cloud like Azure?
While there are many, many reasons to migrate your business to Azure, here are some of the most impactful benefits:
Security is of extreme importance in the world of cloud services, and Microsoft Azure knows this. Azure helps identify new threats and responds quickly with services that are informed by real-time global cybersecurity intelligence delivered at cloud scale. The platform also offers built-in controls and services to help manage identity, data, networking, and app access.
Scalable & Flexible
Data use is not always consistent. Some days you maximize data use, and other times you use a minimal amount. Azure allows you to manage the computing power you need when you need it, making it simple to scale up to accommodate for contractors and seasonal employees or scale down in the slower months. It also allows you to upgrade and remove the services easily, so you only pay for what you use.
The Microsoft Azure platform offers an end-to-end cloud cost management and optimization solution to help customers make the most of cloud investment across multiple platforms with specialized tools to refine availability, performance, security and receive tailored cost recommendations along the way. Azure also offers cost-effective ways to manage and store infrequently accessed data for backup and archiving.
Communication Services. Add voice and video calling, chat, and SMS text message capabilities to mobile apps, desktop applications, and websites all with just a few lines of code. You can also enable end-to-end communication scenarios with both inbound and outbound calling, eliminate unsolicited calls or texts through Azure’s verification services and integrate into existing, on-premises equipment and networks with SIP. And, the great thing is, these capabilities can be used on virtually any platform and device.
With built-in AI, Azure empowers organizations of all sizes to protect their most sensitive assets with a broad range of security tools — from user behavior analytics alongside threat intelligence for Azure Sentinel; multi-cloud security posture management; to Double Encryption for data at rest and transit (just to name a few) — your organization is poised to keep bad actors and data thieves where they belong: out, so you can direct more energy in, and focus attention towards the things that matter most.
From brand new spatial analysis capabilities through Azure Cognitive Computer Vision Service (which uses advanced AI models to gain insights into head counts, distance between individuals and more) to achieving agility and resiliency via Azure Cognitive Metrics Advisor with the power to capture potential network device failures and run root cause analysis, customers now have the ability to build powerful, custom machine learning models without data science expertise.
With remote work at an all-time high, being able to connect, communicate and access shared platforms, wherever you are, is more important than ever before. Azure Arc provides the flexibility to innovate anywhere with Azure. Azure Arc does two key things. One, it brings Azure management capabilities to any infrastructure, and two, it enables Azure services to run anywhere. Azure continues to add more innovation to its global access, including enabled data services, allowing users to seamlessly organize and govern Windows and Linux servers across their multi-cloud environment, all via the Azure portal.

What Can You Do With Microsoft Azure?
The possibilities are endless.
While we’ve already touched on quite a few of its powerhouse capabilities, here’s a slightly deeper dive into a few of the Azure service offerings and tools:
Azure Windows Autopilot
Windows Autopilot streamlines the process in which devices are deployed, reset, and repurposed, reducing the time IT spends on deploying and managing devices, minimizing the infrastructure required to maintain the devices, and maximizing ease-of-use for end users of all kinds.
Azure Site Recovery
Azure Site Recovery helps keep your applications running during both planned and unplanned outages, allowing you to quickly deploy replication, failover, and recovery processes so you don’t miss a beat. You can also test your compliance, business continuity and disaster recovery plans without interrupting production workloads.
Collect, analyze, and act on telemetry data received from your Azure and on-premises environments. Azure Monitor helps you better understand how your applications are performing by proactively identifying issues in seconds so you can maximize the performance and the availability of your applications
Host your entire infrastructure: servers, applications and services entirely on the cloud, further empowering productivity with a virtual desktop experience, and delivering efficiency with centralized security and management capabilities.
Azure storage provides fully managed file shares in the cloud that are accessible via the industry-standard SMB and NFS protocols and can be cached on Windows Servers with Azure File Sync for fast access.
Providing migration tools and guidance for planning and implementing a shift to the cloud, Azure Migrate provides a centralized dashboard to check progress and evaluate insights for key migration scenarios across servers, data, databases, web apps, and virtual desktops.
Azure Active Directory (AD)
The Azure Active Directory is an identity management solution which provides single sign-on and multi-factor authentication to help protect users from 99.9 percent of cybersecurity attacks. Whether employees are on-site or remote, Azure Active Directory provides seamless access to all their apps so they can stay productive from anywhere, while the single-identity platform allows users to engage with internal and external more securely.
Azure SQL Database is a cloud-based, relational database service, offering server less compute and Hyperscale storage options which automatically scale resources as needed, so you can focus on building new applications without the need to stress about storage size or resource management.
Azure Advanced Threat Analytics
Azure Advanced Threat Analytics is an on-premises platform which shields your data from advanced targeted attacks by automatically scanning, analyzing and cataloging entity (user, devices, and resources) behavior so it’s able to differentiate between normal and abnormal entity activity behavior. Azure Advanced Threat Analytics also identifies configuration vulnerabilities, integrates security posture management assessments with Secure Score, and provides real-time insights and data.
Azure Backup is a secure, one-click backup solution that’s scalable based on backup storage needs. The centralized management interface helps to easily define backup policies and protect a variety of enterprise workloads, including Azure Virtual Machines, SQL and SAP databases, and Azure file shares.
With Azure PowerPlatform you can achieve more with less…less code that is. Whether it’s managing solutions through DevOps or quickly clearing out app backlog, PowerPlatform provides an array of options for rapid development and seamless integration all while reducing costs.
