Cloud Services with Microsoft

The cloud has been called the next logical step in enterprise computing. No longer as much about managing infrastructure, enterprise computing is now more about managing information. It’s about having your storage, your application development environment, your applications, and your security available to you when you need them—all from an information technology grid.

In this complimentary webcast with Microsoft, Chief Architect Dan Craytor highlights why you should consider moving to a cloud model:

  • Greater business agility
  • Greater resource agility
  • Managed costs
  • Smaller carbon footprint
