On-premise technology can be inefficient with under-utilized hardware, inflexible licensing and a platform that grows only in steps in response to business needs. Cost reductions from elimination of hardware and often inefficient on-site licensing is only part of the benefit of moving to Windows Azure. Microsoft developed the Windows Azure platform to be completely, and easily scalable, meaning it can grow as your business does and in a more linear fashion. Having a more efficient and responsive IT foundation can help you react to change and opportunities faster, scaling up your technology platform is no-longer a project but turning up the tap.
Increase Efficiency with Mobilized Workflows
Your business is fighting for growth through innovation and expansion. First mover advantage in global markets can be the difference between success and failure. Exploiting opportunities and innovation should not be hampered by waiting for technology to facilitate. Head count needs to increase by 100? New application needs servers for implementation? New overseas office set up? With Windows Azure press the button and you get the resources you need fast. You can expand and contract your platform on-demand; pay for only what you use. Don't kill opportunities with inflexible IT; your competitors won't be.
Improve customer service
How much time and resource does your organizationinvest in maintaining its baseline IT services? Servers, licensing, maintenance, projects to implement change; they all suck in huge amounts of time, money and employee focus. What if you didn't have to worry about any of that baseline infrastructure anymore? What could you achieve with that extra time and resources that would be freed up? Windows Azure gives you your platform - your IT foundation, completely scalable, robust and secure, without the drain on your resources. Your technology team can now spend more time using its skills to improve business results, exploiting opportunities and working on positive change not mundane maintenance.
