The number one asset in your business is undoubtedly its staff. Every employee has spent months and years steering the direction of the firm and moving its goals and ambitions forward week by week. It can be detrimental then to find your staff spending the majority of their time “fire fighting;” i.e., working to solve mundane problems and tasks as they happen within the business. Azure’s Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud platform has the power to transform your business and put your staff in a more commanding role of the day-to-day.
In a sentence, IaaS allows your firm to respond more quickly to constantly changing conditions. Whether responding to internal innovation or external factors such as security, stability, or scalability, IaaS is structured precisely to allow your expert staff to handle key business issues in their own domain with efficient ease.
Used across multiple industries, common uses of IaaS include:
It is self-evident to IT departments and technically savvy personnel that cloud solutions can benefit tech departments by adding computing power while improving stability and reliability. What is less evident are the improvements Azure IaaS can bring elsewhere in the firm too.
Financial and legal departments benefit from Azure services just as much as IT, development, and test. Data stored on the Azure environment is done so in full compliance with up-to-the-minute regulations. The privacy and security demands of industry catered to by IaaS provides peace of mind and takes one critical component from the organization’s plate.
One of the common misconceptions of the cloud is its lack of security or loss of control by moving data from one location to another. The reverse is far truer. Microsoft’s data centers in locations around the globe protect data with two-tier authentication, biometric controls, and incident response teams that react to unfolding events as they happen. Very few alternate options have the security and dependability as Azure cloud services.
The cloud computing marketplace is more competitive now than it has ever been. Multiple providers each have competitive business offerings with their own features and benefits. Below are some of the key features which make Azure IaaS stand out ahead of its competition.
The most powerful, flexible, and valuable resource your business has access to is its staff. Azure IaaS provides them the tools and technologies to do more and fulfill their full potential on projects that matter.

Since the dawn of business, users have looked for three main components when it comes to data: Search | Secure| Share. Now let's talk about the evolution of data over the years. It's a story in itself if one pays attention. Back then, applications were created to handle a set of processes/tasks. These processes/tasks, when grouped logically, became a sub-function, a set of sub-functions constituted a function, and a set of functions made up an enterprise. Phase 1 – Data-AwareExplore
Practitioners in the data realm have gone through various acronyms over the years. It all started with "Decision Support Systems" followed by "Data Warehouse", "Data Marts", "Data Lakes", "Data Fabric", and "Data Mesh", amongst storage formats of RDBMS, MPP, Big Data, Blob, Parquet, Iceberg, etc., and data collection, consolidation, and consumption patterns that have evolved with technology.Explore
Enterprises have, over time, invested in a variety of tools, technologies, and methodologies to solve the critical problem of managing enterprise data assets, be it data catalogs, security policies associated with data access, or encryption/decryption of data (in motion and at rest) or identification of PII, PHI, PCI data. As technology has evolved, so have the tools and methodologies to implement the same. However, the issue continues to persist. There are a variety of reasons for the same:Explore
Finding Hidden Patterns and Correlations Innovative technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) and natural language processing (NLP) are transforming the way we approach data analytics. AI, ML and NLP are categorized under the umbrella term of “cognitive analytics,” which is an approach that leverages human-like computer intelligence to identify hidden patterns and correlations in data.Explore
What Is an SQL Query Engine? SQL query engine architecture was designed to allow users to query a variety of data sources within a single query. While early SQL-based query engines such as Apache Hive allowed analysts to cut through the clutter of analytical data, they found running SQL analytics on multi-petabyte data warehouses to be a time-intensive process that was difficult to visualize and hard to scale.Explore
