You can share your requirements and possibly, your preference of Microsoft product to be leveraged for the same, with the service provider.

Here’s a look at a few of the technologies that a Microsoft Technology Solutions Company can help you work with, for optimum cost and time efficiency.

Microsoft Azure: This cloud computing operating system enables “on demand” computing. It was created to build, employ and manage services and applications through an international network of Microsoft-managed data centers. It offers both Iaas and Paas services and may be tapped to utilize computing resources whenever required and for flexibility. Instead of buying extra hardware for the purpose of computing jobs, you can ask your service provider for help in offloading data processing tasks to the cloud. This will ensure that your business needs pay only for whatever it utilizes, thereby decreasing long term expenses. Microsoft Azure can also be tapped for novel cloud solutions that increase connectivity, minimize risk and optimize security.

Microsoft SQL Server: SQL Server can serve as the foundation of your business’s IT infrastructure. It is in fact the foundation of all Microsoft products that call for data storage. Ask your service provider for help with tapping business intelligence tools so that you get optimum value from your business data stores. Another service request may be to merge your dissimilar systems with SQL Server. SQL Server is suitable for the development of mission-critical applications utilizing in-memory security technology across data warehousing, business analytics, business intelligence and OLTP.

Microsoft SharePoint: This is a web application platform and framework comprising a bundle of web technologies that share one technical interface. SharePoint combines document management, content management and intranet. Its web tools are directed at non-technical users. Talk to your Microsoft Technology Solutions Company about evaluation, design, planning and execution.

Microsoft .Net: The software framework .NET offers language interoperability across a number of programming languages. It incorporates a huge class library termed “Framework Class Library” (FCL). FCL makes available data access, user interface, cryptography, database connectivity, network communications, numeric algorithms and web application development. .Net is a fundamental element of a number of applications that work on Windows. It offers a common functionality for the running of those applications. Using .NET, your service provider can do things like full-fledged migration to .NET, or development of tailored business applications, portals and/or eCommerce sites.

Office 365: Office 365 refers to a bunch of software plus services subscriptions which offer productivity software and associated solutions to its subscribers. With respect to enterprise and business users, the platform offers plans such as social networking and email by way of hosted versions of SharePoint, Lync and Exchange Server and Office Web Apps, access to Office Software and integration with Yammer.
