Microsoft Cloud Services strategies can be re-adjusted such that enterprise accounts can collaborate in new app creation. Microsoft with their Cloud Services has enabled senior management teams in enterprises help achieve what their customers expect most: give a face-lift to their app.

Azure also offers enterprises the option to use current relational SQL databases, analytics services and noSQL data stores when creating new cloud-based apps. Azure is built with the capability to support frameworks, architecture, coding languages and tools that enable different compatibility levels, with data stores, databases and analytics. Azure is great for enterprises having a considerable chunk of their legacy app inventory in .NET for building cloud apps. It is equally supportive to PHP, Node.js, Python and several other coding languages. Azure supports legacy Microsoft architectures that helped enterprises standardize their IT infrastructure years before, which puts it in the driver’s seat. Microsoft’s migration strategy for web services, APIs and coding tools help enterprises dish out cloud app roadmaps rapidly. There is a dev community too for building and releasing apps particularly aimed at cloud migration at the enterprise level. These factors make Azure a somewhat open cloud platform among enterprises.

Enterprises considering Azure are running pilots to assess the Azure Usage API, which enables subscribing services to generate usage data. This API can throw in reporting data at the hourly level, information on resource metadata and supports Chargeback and Showback models. In production and pilot environment, Azure deployed is using API to create dashboards and web services to assess and predict costs and usage.

Azure is offering assistance in how the long-term Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) will be, and are ready to pass on the cost-saving benefits they were able to achieve on their platforms. Their cloud-based subscription model of several apps, including Office365, is gaining popularity, as enterprises have started to migrate their workloads to cloud services.

Enterprises that have omnichannel and multichannel apps in the offing rely on Azure to simplify and streamline the customer experience and offer responsiveness in real-time which presents more compelling use cases of the latest apps in development stage. The interface of channel, services and custom on a single integrated platform delivers greater customer insights and rapid app development.
