Microsoft Azure 

Microsoft Azure is Microsoft’s cloud computing platform. It offers a wide range of services that companies, organizations, and individuals can use to host, manage, and deploy their applications. Microsoft Azure includes various cloud-based services such as infrastructure services (IaaS), platform services (PaaS), and software services (SaaS). 

Key features of Azure include:

  • Software Services (SaaS): Azure includes a range of software services such as Office 365, Dynamics 365, and Microsoft 365. These services enable users to benefit from cloud-based software in areas like office productivity, business process management, and customer relationship management. 
  • Data and Analytics Services: Azure offers data and analytics services including database management (SQL databases, Cosmos DB), big data processing (HDInsight, Data Lake Analytics), data storage, and analytics. 
  • Security and Compliance: Azure provides comprehensive services for security, authentication, access control, and compliance. This allows users to securely store their data and manage business processes in compliance with standards.
