1. Getting more out of cloud practice
Better applications, better business
Whoever thinks about innovation in today’s economy, nine chances out of ten, looks up at the sky and aims for the cloud. Businesses continue to find ways to differentiate themselves by optimizing their services with cloud technology, with the help of IT partners that can pinpoint opportunities and bring clarity.
It’s therefore very encouraging that Microsoft has announced a continuing focus on getting customers and partners to build, run and modernize applications. Microsoft Intelligent Data Platform is obviously a key catalyst we have been excited about since it was announced in May. Our own cloud practice team at Xylos has defined App Modernization as a key focus area from day 1.
Of course, not everything in this world is cloud native, so the attention Microsoft has confirmed to continue directing at migration of infrastructure and mission-critical workloads with the Azure Migration and Modernization Program (AMMP) is something we are really happy about too.
Great news for the public sector too
There was also great news for the public sector. It goes by the name of Microsoft Cloud for Sovereignty. Public sector organizations often have to deal with particular requirements on the level of compliance, security and policy. Of course, that doesn’t mean they couldn’t benefit from cloud flexibility as much as private organizations. They sure would and with Microsoft Cloud for Sovereignty, their IT staff will now be able to build customized workloads.
The digital fitness of our public sector, from healthcare to public finance, is paramount for our society to flourish and resilient when challenges come along. Obviously, we are eager to help them with wield the power of public cloud, making solutions more scalable, agile and cost-effective.
