In a modern organization, data can be fragmented and scattered into thousands of silos, and most companies aren’t able to add up or even count their data. One of the biggest problems in many companies today doesn’t involve fancy analytics, but their inability to gather that data together and manage it in order to gain the benefits.

Aligning your analytics program with Microsoft Azure tools and programs will help you manage your data and increase your business knowledge and intelligence. Microsoft Azure is an ever-expanding set of cloud services; it gives you the freedom to build, manage, and deploy applications on a global network, using your favorite tools and frameworks.

Here are some of the benefits in using Microsoft Azure:

Developer Productivity. Using any tool, language, or framework, you’ll be able to turn ideas into solutions quickly, and increase your productivity with tools for both PC and Mac, such as Visual Studio and Visual Studio Code.
Consistency. Reduce the complexity, time, and risks of integrating cloud capabilities across your environment, including identity, applications, data, security, and management. Microsoft Azure is the only consistent hybrid cloud.
Intelligence. With Microsoft Azure, you can develop breakthrough apps with built-in intelligence. It includes a comprehensive set of services, infrastructure, and tools to build AI-powered experiences; you’ll be able to build bots that interact naturally with users and built-in advanced analytics tools to make faster predictions.
Trust. 90 percent of Fortune 500 companies run on the Microsoft Cloud today as well as governments and startups across the nation, and Microsoft leads the industry in establishing clear security and privacy requirements and in consistently meeting those requirements. Azure itself meets a broad set of international and industry-specific compliance standards. Third-party audits, such as those conducted by the British Standards Institute, have verified Azure’s adherence to mandated security controls.

As your data operations are made more efficient, growth will occur naturally within the company. Obtaining insights will be easier, and your opportunities for expansion will become more apparent. This growth, together with the forward trend in the technology sector, allows companies to integrate a greater volume of data with a wider variety of data sources. A Microsoft aligned analytics program will go a long way to increasing the efficiency of your data operations.
