Azure Cloud Computing – Business Application Systems

AZURE CLOUD COMPUTING

We’ve transitioned hundreds of customers to move from an on-premise software solution to the cloud. In particular, we’ve moved them to the Microsoft Azure Cloud. It doesn’t matter the size of your company or your industry; everyone benefits from the cloud, especially a secure cloud platform such as Azure.

WORKING WITH US

Not sure if cloud-based solutions will fit your organization? We have experience working with clients, sorting through requirements, and deciding what cloud approach will work. Our infrastructure teams can then help configure your Azure instances and keep your systems monitored and running smoothly. We’re dedicated to consulting, implementation and support best practices that will give you an edge.

As an award winning Microsoft partner, we offer the service and expertise needed to make your implementation and support a success.

Case Study: CORNWELL QUALITY TOOLS

For 100 years, Cornwell Quality Tools has been a manufacturer and distributor of automotive hand tools. They brought in Sikich to help them upgrade to 20th century technology, starting with Microsoft Office products. Later Sikich helped them implement Dynamics AX. After the company developed a mobile app for their employees out in the field, they wanted to move their hosting to the cloud. Cornwell chose Azure since it was the most reliable and most robust host they found for those services.

HOW AZURE IMPACTS YOUR OPERATIONS

In the past, expensive hardware upgrades was a part of doing business as usual. With virtualization, the face of computing and how businesses managed growth changed overnight. Microsoft Azure is a growing collection of integrated cloud services—analytics, computing, database, mobile, networking, storage, and web—for moving faster, achieving more, and saving money.

Deploying resources to fit the exact size of your business at any given time.

USE AN OPEN AND FLEXIBLE CLOUD SERVICE PLATFORM

Azure supports the broadest selection of operating systems, programming languages, frameworks, tools, databases and devices. Run Linux containers with Docker integration; build apps with JavaScript, Python, .NET, PHP, Java and Node.js; build back-ends for iOS, Android and Windows devices.

Azure cloud service supports the same technologies millions of developers and IT professionals already rely on and trust.

EXTEND YOUR EXISTING IT

Some cloud providers make you choose between your datacenter and the cloud. Not Azure, which easily integrates with your existing IT environment through the largest network of secure private connections, hybrid database and storage solutions, and data residency and encryption features—so your assets stay right where you need them.

And with Azure Stack, you can bring the Azure model of application development and deployment to your datacenter. Azure hybrid cloud solutions give you the best of both worlds: more IT options, less complexity and cost. It’s why it’s one of the best cloud computing services available.

SCALE AS NEEDED, PAY AS YOU GO

Azure’s pay-as-you-go services can quickly scale up or down to match demand, so you only pay for what you use. Per-minute billing and a commitment to match competitor prices for popular infrastructure services like compute, storage and bandwidth mean you’re always getting unbeatable price for performance.

PROTECT YOUR DATA

We know some organizations are still wary of the cloud. That’s why Microsoft has made an industry-leading commitment to the protection and privacy of your data. Azure was recognized by the European Union’s data protection authorities for our commitment to rigorous EU privacy laws.

Microsoft was also the first major cloud provider to adopt the new international cloud privacy standard, ISO 27018. Azure Government, a stand-alone version of Azure, was designed to meet the rigorous compliance requirements of U.S. public agencies.

RUN YOUR APPS ANYWHERE

As the best cloud service from Microsoft, Azure runs on a worldwide network of Microsoft-managed datacenters across 22 regions—more countries and regions than Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud combined.

This fast-growing global footprint gives you lots of options for running applications and ensuring great customer performance. Azure is also the first multinational cloud provider in mainland China.

MAKE SMARTER DECISIONS

Azure’s predictive analytics services, including Machine Learning, Cortana Analytics and Stream Analytics, are redefining business intelligence.

Make smarter decisions, improve customer service and uncover new business possibilities from your structured, unstructured and streaming Internet of Things data.

“We’ve got a long relationship with Sikich and they’ve been excellent partners of ours. Sometimes we take the word partner for granted, but they really are our partner, and they’ve got my back in a lot of areas. The good thing about Sikich is that they’re consistent, they’re professional, they’re reliable. It’s just been a great relationship.”
