Microsoft Azure: Modern Workplace Solution
Word. PowerPoint. Excel. There’s no denying that Microsoft has made an indelible impact on business.
In 2010, the technology titan expanded its product catalog to include Microsoft Azure—a cloud-based platform that supports the creation, deployment and management of websites, mobile services, and other applications.
In the years since, Microsoft has refined Azure to seamlessly support the modern workplace and the company’s efforts are paying off. The number of subscribers recently doubled and sales show no signs of slowing down.
Microsoft Azure’s popularity can be attributed to the three benefits outlined below.
Focus on developing your business, not your app
Say you own a popular restaurant and you want to create an app that alerts people on a waiting list when a reservation has been cancelled. Building a mobile app from scratch typically takes four to six months. Building an app on Microsoft Azure takes a fraction of the time.
Perhaps the most time-consuming phase of app development is building the foundation infrastructure, or platform. Microsoft Azure provides all of that. The only thing you have to develop is the app’s functionalities. Streamlined development means your restaurant can be turning tables in two weekends!
Easily scales to accommodate your business needs
Your reservation app has generated a lot of publicity. Even more people have downloaded the app in the hopes that a table will open up and they can enjoy a meal in your restaurant.
Whether it increases steadily or skyrockets overnight, Azure has the capacity to support your growing user rate. An industry leader, Microsoft understands that you can’t afford to keep users waiting while you reformat your app. With Azure, upgrading is as simple as adjusting the settings.
Pay-as-you-go pricing keeps costs in check
Azure not only scales to accommodate your applications’ needs, it scales to accommodate your budget.
Microsoft’s pay-as-you-go pricing model greatly reduces the cost of building, testing, refining, and deploying applications. Subscribers are only charged for the computer processing time and storage space that they need—never for what they don’t. Azure is so cost-effective that you may want to consider opening a second location!
Microsoft Azure has made app development quick, convenient, cost-effective, and—best of all—accessible to small business.
