It’s not an ‘all or nothing’ approach; instead, it enables you to flow workloads into your own infrastructure, as well as outside sets of infrastructure. So, you can complement your existing IT assets with Web based services. And by having applications available across the Internet, you can help ensure the experience is consistent across all devices.
The three principles of the Microsoft cloud computing strategy:
• On-premises, off-premises, or a combination of both based on business need.
• Enterprise-class services with no compromises to availability, reliability, or security.
• Consistent, connected experiences across device or platform.
Microsoft cloud services offer you greater financial flexibility in how you fund your IT resources. Reducing the need for on-premises resources, reduces the maintenance and operational overhead, including hardware and facility expenses. And at the same time, you can simplify and accelerate application updates and deployment.
Microsoft cloud services provide an elastic infrastructure that enables you to address needs as they arise, with the confidence that you always have the ability to do so. That means your team can stay connected and stay on top of business challenges, regardless of the device they’re using, or where they’re using it. And your organization as a whole can be more responsive, help ensure faster time to market, and as a result, be even more competitive.
