Microsoft Azure, a powerful Cloud computing solution, is designed to propel your business forward.
Discover how Azure can boost connectivity, productivity, security, and more for your organization.
Today’s technology is evolving at a lightening-faced pace. In this ever-changing environment, Microsoft Azure is used for meeting business challenges and goals with specific resources that allow companies to choose the tools they need and the level of flexibility they prefer.
Microsoft Azure is used for productivity, security, and integration to help companies build and maintain the resources they need to meet business challenges and goals. It’s a great way to connect different systems while maintaining uptime and protecting data and resources in a secure environment.
In an era where cloud-based solutions are not just an option, but a necessity for streamlined operations, businesses are increasingly turning away from the burdens of in-house infrastructure management. With advancements in cloud services like networking, security, and analytics, on-premise servers are becoming a relic of the past. Companies are now seeking cloud service providers who can shoulder the complexities of backup, disaster recovery, ongoing maintenance, version updates, and robust security measures.
Enter the realm of Microsoft Azure, a comprehensive cloud computing service that delivers a wide array of cloud solutions, encompassing computing, mobile, web, storage, analytics, the Internet of Things (IoT), and more. Azure stands out in the ERP landscape, offering seamless ERP implementation and reliable ERP project recovery options.
Azure empowers businesses with its versatile offerings:
Because Azure is so flexible, it can used for a wide variety of use cases, from integrating specific services to functioning as a replacement for on-premise servers.
Let’s take a look at five common use cases that put Azure to work.
Azure Use Case #1: Host and Develop Applications
When a mobile or web application goes down, it can mean loss of productivity, revenue, and customer trust. Azure Web Apps and Mobile Apps make it easy to host, scale, patch and sync their sites and apps so they can keep critical services up and running. Users can build an app inside Azure using .Net, Ruby, PHP, Python and a variety of other languages. Azure also supports both Windows and Linux, and can integrate commonly-used development environments like GitHub or Visual Studio.

Azure Use Case #2: Manage Identity and Security
As remote work has become more widely integrated into the workplace experience, employers need a reliable system that can be accessed by a geographically dispersed workforce while keeping sensitive data secure. Azure Active Directory protects the online environment with multifactor, single sign-on authentication so employees can access everything they need, while providing rock-solid protection against cyber-attacks. The user experience is seamless and convenient, making it possible to manage all applications through conditional access that gives employees visibility and control over resources as needed.

Azure Use Case # 3: Build Internet of Things Industry Solutions
With thousands of partners in the Microsoft Cloud ecosystem, the Azure IoT Hub makes it possible to build and manage IoT applications that help you serve customers and connect IoT assets. Azure IoT gives full control over solution architecture as well as underlying services, enabling customization, management, and scaling as needed.

Azure Use Case #4: Automate Workflows with Logic Apps
Quickly build, scale, and automate business processes and workflows that integrate all your data, apps, and services. Azure Logic Apps makes it simple to connect legacy and Cloud solutions without programming any code. Workflows and processes are configured in a web portal with easy administration, built-in triggers and actions, and enterprise integration. With hundreds of connectors available, users can pay for only the triggers and actions they need, plus storage.

Azure Use Case #5: Cloud-Based ERP Hosting and Dynamics 365 F&O
Critical ERP systems require reliable uptime, security, and scalability. With Azure, companies can host ERPs using the Azure Platform as a Service (PaaS) offering, like the web and mobile app service. Microsoft Azure also hosts Dynamics 365 F&O, Microsoft’s own SaaS ERP solution. Either of these options enable companies to manage their ERP environments securely while providing the flexibility to scale as needed.
