Azure cloud services

Microsoft Azure can help businesses streamline their processes by hosting applications on one platform, accessible from anywhere.

What is Microsoft Azure?

Microsoft Azure is a set of integrated cloud services. Used by developers and IT professionals, it helps build, implement and manage applications and services through a network of data centres.

Why use Microsoft Azure?

Microsoft environment

Azure is part of the Microsoft environment and as such, Azure-based apps usethe same languages and technologies as Microsoft-based apps. This makes it easy to find developers who have the skills to develop Azure-based applications.


Apps can easily and rapidly be scaled to a larger user base – from ten to 10 million users! When an app needs to scale up to support a growing user base, one can simply change the settings to use more processors. With the pay-as-you-use pricing model, businesses only pay according to data needs.

Pricing model

The pricing model mentioned above also makes Azure a cost-efficient solution. By only paying for what you use, you save on on-premise storage space that your business may not need at present.


Microsoft designed Azure with security in mind, shaping its compliance framework around regulatory requirements. While identities are integrated using the .NET Access Control Service, applications use Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) to determine whether a user has access rights.

Faster development

Azure’s Public Cloud infrastructure allows agile teams to speed up the development process. While instances can be turned on and off on demand, the development data can remain in the Cloud for the next person to use. The allocation of data and infrastructure can be managed from a single database.
