Microsoft Azure in a nutshell

If you’ve heard about Microsoft Azure but aren’t sure what it does, or you want to know more about being an Azure technical consultant – we’ve got the lowdown.

What is Azure?

Microsoft Azure is a collection of integrated cloud services with capabilities for organisations of all sizes. Its products and services are used in combination to solve a multitude of business problems.

Azure includes:

  • Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
  • Platform as a Service (PaaS)
  • Software as a Service (SaaS)

Why Azure is the most popular platform

As the fastest growing cloud platform on the market, it’s secure, flexible, multi-functional, scalable and provides performance-efficient storage services.

Why customers love Azure:

  • Familiarity with Windows
  • No need to worry about hardware, as Azure uses Virtual Machines (VMs)
  • Cost-effective as you only pay for what you use
  • Rapidly scale up or down – increase or decrease users in an instant
  • Adaptable for hybrid models – integrates the cloud with on-premises infrastructure

What’s in it for you?

As an Azure technical consultant, you can deliver long-term value to customers with recurring revenue streams. It’s a fantastic business opportunity like no other.

Through Azure, you can:

  1. Make migration happen – help customers move and optimise their workloads in Azure.
  2. Provide long-term managed services for customers across infrastructure, platform and app life cycle, privacy, security, compliance, DevOps, and governance.
  3. Help customers plan, design, and develop digital transformation – for web, client, and mobile applications.
  4. Build a microservices-based, cloud-native architecture that makes it easier to develop and scale your applications.
  5. Harness the latest innovations from Microsoft in advanced analytics, machine learning, AI, IoT, blockchain, mixed reality, and e-commerce platforms.
  6. Develop repeatable vertical and line-of-business solutions and package them to create a new recurring revenue stream.
