According to Microsoft, Azure is an ever-expanding set of cloud services to help your organisation meet business challenges. It’s the freedom to build, manage, and deploy applications on a massive, global network using various tools and frameworks.

From DevOps to business analytics to the Internet of Things, Azure is designed to have users up and running quickly with a scalable, cost-effective solution that works with your existing investments.
