Benefits of Azure for Small to Medium Business

In today's fast-paced business landscape, staying ahead of the competition requires efficient and effective solutions. According to Microsoft’s Work Trend Index, nearly 70% of employee report that they don’t have sufficient time in the day to focus on “work”, with more time being spent Communicating than Creating.

Microsoft 365 Copilot is designed, with Microsoft’s cloud trust platform at its core, to allow for employees to both be more productive, reduce the time spent searching for information, performing mundane tasks, and other low-value activities.

Benefits of Azure for Small to Medium Business

As a small to mid-size business owner, you may have been slow to embrace cloud-based services. Understandably, you may be guarded about issues like accessibility to your network, safety concerns, and control of your customer data and intellectual property. What you may not realize is that maintaining on-premise servers can put a significant IT burden on you as an owner, and potentially makes you more vulnerable to all of the concerns listed above.

One proven alternative to on-premise architecture is Azure, Microsoft’s public cloud computing platform. Azure can help you address a broad spectrum of your daily network needs, such as routine system back-ups, data storage and analytics, and security provisions targeting people inside and outside your company’s network. And while Azure’s capabilities are vast, they are also cost-effective and easy to implement.

Here are some high-level benefits of implementing Azure into your IT operations:

  • Increased Flexibility: With Azure, you pay based on your organization’s needs and required functionality, and should those needs shift with market dynamics, you can adjust your scope of service.

  • Azure is Agile: Should you decide to engage with a cloud service such as Azure, the deployment, operation, and scalability are immediate, reducing downtime and the training cycle.

  • Tight Security: Azure data centers and servers servers have Fort-Knox-Like security measures — two-tier authentications, proxy card access readers, hand geometry biometric readers, and a global incident response team.

  • Analytics In Place: Azure offers significant, built-in analytics capabilities that can analyze vast amounts of data and return actionable insights in real-time.

  • Disaster Recovery: Should something go wrong, Azure has you covered on the back end so that your data is recoverable and always secure, even when your larger network may not be.

  • Automated Updates: Azure ensures that you are always running the most current, efficient, and effective cloud service for your business. Automated updates take place in real-time so your infrastructure and applications are always at peak performance.

  • Access From Anywhere: Because Azure is cloud-based, you can access your data from anywhere, anytime, on any device.

  • Storage As Needed: Azure allows you to store your data based on your immediate and growing needs, but it also increases the speed by which you access stored information and enables you to share your data across multiple platforms, machines, and devices.
