Inside Microsoft’s Cloud OS vision

Building the unified platform for modern business

It’s a new day in IT. There are more apps, more devices, and now, more data than ever — all driven by the rise of cloud computing and the use of cloud services. With cloud technologies playing an expanding role in business, how can IT drive more efficiency and deliver new forms of value? With the platform wired for the cloud and built for modern business. Our vision of that platform is the Cloud OS.

Why Microsoft Cloud?

Turn IT pressures into opportunities

The converging trends of big data, modern apps, cloud, and bring-your-own-device represent real opportunities for IT to deliver more efficiencies and new value. To help you do that, the Microsoft Cloud OS brings together on-premises solutions with a cloud platform to create a hybrid, highly-responsive, and accessible solution.

With business intelligence tools built right into Excel, and supercharged by a powerful back-end data platform in SQL Server, Microsoft makes it easier for everyone to discover new insights and uncover new connections and relationships across data sets.
