Microsoft Cloud Platform and Services

The Microsoft Cloud Platform approach allows IT to achieve all the benefits of scale, speed, and agility while still protecting existing investments. This means that IT can now rapidly build and deploy applications, manage IT services flexibly, and support real-time analytics across all forms of data.

Microsoft Azure, formerly known as Windows Azure, is Microsoft’s public cloud computing platform. It provides a broad range of cloud services, including compute, analytics, storage and networking. Users can pick and choose from these services to develop and scale new applications or run existing applications in the public cloud.

Cloud Computing

  • Azure VM: An Azure virtual machine gives you the flexibility of virtualization without having to buy and maintain the physical hardware that runs it. However, you still need to maintain the virtual machine by performing tasks, such as configuring, patching, and installing the software that runs on it.

  • Windows 365: Windows 365 is a cloud-based service that automatically creates a new type of Windows virtual machine (Cloud PCs) for your end users. Each Cloud PC is assigned to an individual user and is their dedicated Windows device. Windows 365 provides the productivity, security, and collaboration benefits of Microsoft 365.


  • Power Platforms: The Microsoft Power Platform is a powerful set of applications that allow you to automate processes, build solutions, analyze data, and create virtual agents.

  • Azure Functions: Azure Functions is a serverless solution that allows you to write less code, maintain less infrastructure, and save on costs. Instead of worrying about deploying and maintaining servers, the cloud infrastructure provides all the up-to-date resources needed to keep your applications running.

  • Logic Apps: Azure Logic Apps is a cloud platform where you can create and run automated workflows with little to no code. By using the visual designer and selecting from prebuilt operations, you can quickly build a workflow that integrates and manages your apps, data, services, and systems.

  • Azure docker and kubernetes
    • Docker: Docker is a popular container management and imaging platform that allows you to quickly work with containers on Linux and Windows.
    • Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) offers the quickest way to start developing and deploying cloud-native apps in Azure, datacenters, or at the edge with built-in code-to-cloud pipelines and guardrails. Get unified management and governance for on-premises, edge, and multicloud Kubernetes clusters. Interoperate with Azure security, identity, cost management, and migration services.

Office & Businees Applicatioms

  • Office Suit in Microsoft 365: Microsoft 365 is a cloud-based productivity solution that brings together your favorite office applications, cloud services, device management, and security to enhance your collaboration.

Web Portal

  • SharePoint: Organizations use Microsoft SharePoint to create websites. You can use it as a secure place to store, organize, share, and access information from any device. All you need is a web browser, such as Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Chrome, or Firefox.

  • Microsoft Power Pages: Microsoft Power Pages is a secure enterprise-grade, low-code software as a service (SaaS) platform for creating, hosting, and administering modern external business websites.


  • Dynamics:  Dynamics 365 is a suite of next-generation intelligent business applications that help you manage your customer relationships, streamline processes, run your business, and deliver greater results through predictive insights.


The Microsoft data platform brings AI to your data so you gain deep knowledge about your business and customers like never before. Only Microsoft brings machine learning to database engines and to the edge, for faster predictions and better security.

AI and IoT

  • AI: Azure AI platform, services, and solutions. Innovate and accelerate with powerful tools and services that bring artificial intelligence to every developer.

  • IoT: The Azure Internet of Things (IoT) is a collection of Microsoft-managed cloud services that connect, monitor, and control billions of IoT assets. In simpler terms, an IoT solution is made up of one or more IoT devices that communicate with one or more back-end services hosted in the cloud.


  • One Drive: Microsoft OneDrive is a file hosting service operated by Microsoft. First launched in August 2007, it enables registered users to share and synchronize their files. OneDrive also works as the storage backend of the web version of Microsoft Office.

  • Azure Storage Services: The Azure Storage platform is Microsoft’s cloud storage solution for modern data storage scenarios. Azure Storage offers highly available, massively scalable, durable, and secure storage for a variety of data objects in the cloud.


  • Azure Active Security: Azure Active Directory (Azure AD), part of Microsoft Entra, is an enterprise identity service that provides single sign-on, multifactor authentication, and conditional access to guard against 99.9 percent of cybersecurity attacks.


  • Microsoft Family Safety: Create a safe and healthy environment for your family with digital content filtering, screen time limits, and location sharing.

End Point Management

  • Microsoft Intune:
