When it comes to performance, Azure SQL Database is built for you, the developer. Azure SQL Database is designed to make your work easier and let you focus on other priorities. It scales on the fly, without downtime, with capabilities that make it great for building multitenant software as a service (SaaS) apps. Plus, it learns and adapts to your database workload, whatever that may be, using built-in intelligence to continually adjust and improve over time. That said, there’s more to a successful app than impressive performance. That’s why we built Azure SQL Database to be just as intelligent in other areas, such as availability and security, so that you won’t need to worry about those essentials either. Finally, we built Azure SQL Database to let you work the way you want, using the tools and platforms you prefer. It’s why we call Azure SQL Database the intelligent database for developers. Read on to learn more, and we’re sure you’ll agree.

At its Build conference in May, Microsoft took the wraps off Cosmos DB, the new incarnation of its existing cloud-based Azure DocumentDB NoSQL database. With a nod to the dramatic, Microsoft terms Cosmos DB as its biggest database bet since SQL Server; it is positioning it as its flagship cloud database, suited for use cases ranging from security and fraud detection, to IoT (consumer and industrial), personalization, e-commerce, gaming, social networks, chats, messaging, bots, oil and gas recovery and refining, and smart utility grids. Cosmos DB is a good example of how cloud platform providers are rethinking databases for scalable, elastic environments and commodity infrastructure. The platform that is most comparable is Google Cloud Spanner, but each of these databases is engineered for different purposes: Cosmos DB as a globally distributed operational database and Spanner as a globally distributed SQL-supporting OLTP database. The highlights of Cosmos DB include its flexibility in

If you’re like most developers, you spend about two-thirds of your time building and the rest of your time learning. Sometimes your research is proactive, based on personal interest or a desire to maintain your skills, but more likely it’s out of necessity—learning what you need to tackle your next big project. Not long ago, new projects assumed an on-premises or hosted approach, forcing you to spend considerable time on essential requirements like scalability, availability, and security. Today, you still must deliver on those essentials, but the apps you’re building need to do a lot more: support millions of users, span the globe, make sense of petabytes of data, and delight users in new ways. Cloud services not only deliver “built-in” scalability and availability, but also provide an unprecedented range of prebuilt functionality for driving innovation into your apps—ready to evaluate for your next project, without your having to worry about physical infrastructure and the related ove

When you’re in the software business, your resources can be spread pretty thin. You like to stay focused on building great software, but there are always distractions— from supporting sales opportunities to assisting with customer deployments and troubleshooting existing installations. With so much time spent maintaining the status quo, few cycles remain for modernizing your technology, streamlining internal operations, delivering new customer value, and broadening your customer base. More likely than not, your offerings are based on an on-premises approach, forcing you and your customers to spend considerable time on essential requirements like infrastructure, scalability, availability, and security.

Cloud computing has ushered in a golden era for software companies. The cloud’s low barrier to entry allows creativity to flourish, especially for software developers who are creating applications directly on cloud-based infrastructure. Cloud-based infrastructure enables developers to do what they love: solve business problems and bring innovative new ideas to life, using their choice of tools. In a Software as a Service (SaaS) model, applications can easily be deployed to a cloud service, and delivered to clients who appreciate the ease of access and low cost. The cloud model relieves the developer and the enterprise IT professional from the burden of managing or maintaining capital-intense infrastructure. But the cloud’s low barrier to entry also allows competing software providers to enter the market every day, from every sector. Independent software vendors, or ISVs, are pressured by increased competition to deliver their applications faster, with greater functionality and ease of

SaaS represents an opportunity for ISVs to fundamentally transform their business to deliver greater value to customers, sell software to a broader range of customers, and streamline their internal operations. The market for software is quickly changing to demand this mode of delivery, as software buyers start considering total ownership costs, ease of use, and flexibility in their purchase decisions. ISVs need to prepare for such a transition. This paper will discuss the benefits that stem from changes to an ISV’s business model (how it competes in the marketplace) and operating model (how the ISV executes on its business model) as well as suggestions on how to prepare for a SaaS transition, based on the experience of 20 ISVs who successfully transitioned from a traditional software licensing and delivery model to SaaS.

Cloud is becoming an essential ingredient to a successful IT infrastructure. Recent research by IDC has identified how the growth of cloud as a computing platform has magnified the importance of cloud skills to the success of the enterprise. Moreover, it is becoming clear that IT professionals with cloud skills are strongly influencing both the type of cloud infrastructure and the ultimate pace of adoption of cloud. This puts IT professionals with cloud skills in the driver's seat of their own career. In fact, IT professionals with certifications related to cloud development and operations have dramatically more influence over their organizations' adoption and expansion of cloud services than otherwise similar IT professionals have over the adoption of other types of technical solutions. Cloud skills accelerate the success and career path of IT professionals. The impactful cloud roles are diverse: Multicloud or hybrid cloud management, workload-centric management, and DevOps illustrate

In the two years since we first began working on Enterprise Cloud Strategy, much has changed. Cloud technology has evolved from being an “if” to a “when,” and across almost all enterprises, the cloud has now become an integral part of IT strategy. Further, there is now a growing realization that cloud computing not only represents a set of technical opportunities for efficiencies and cost savings, but also provides the potential to significantly transform the scope of enterprise computing. In fact, many enterprises are finding that cloud computing offers entirely new business models, revenue streams, and vehicles for customer intimacy. Few technological changes have the potential to so dramatically change to the way we do business. The last time we experienced such a tectonic shift was the with arrival of the Internet itself. Yet, as we noted in the first edition of this book, when briefing CIOs and senior IT executives at Microsoft, we are often told that migrating IT workloads to the

Imagine having a relationship with each of your customers that’s built on trust. If every one of your connections turned to you for help in solving their greatest challenges at every stage of the sales journey, what would that do to your bottom line? If you could provide every new prospect with relevant, useful insights that would make them more successful, how would your sales goals change? A new model is emerging in the sales landscape. The entire process looks vastly different than it did just a few years ago. Although that’s due in part to constantly evolving tools and technologies, the greater difference is in the mindsets of buyers. Understanding that mindset and catering to it is what catapults a successful seller into rock-star seller status. While this shift brings new possibilities, every stage of the selling process is also rife with new challenges. Greater access means more noise. Countless resources make it difficult to bring real value. These are just a few of the challen

EXPECTATIONS FOR CUSTOMER SERVICE CONTINUE TO RISE AROUND THE GLOBE Customers expect more from brands when it comes to convenience, resolution times, and agent expertise. Evolving customer preferences are tightly linked to innovations in digital technology, and brands must embrace both in order to keep pace with heightened expectations. The good news is that brands that can deliver on expectations are rewarded with higher rates of customer retention and loyalty. The Microsoft 2017 State of Global Customer Service survey polled 5,000 people from Brazil, Germany, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States. We continue to find commonalities along with distinct differences between locals. And though people in all age groups are embracing new digital trends, millennials especially are shaping the way brands need to think about the future of customer service engagement. Regardless of industry, service organizations are a customer engagement focal point for brands around the world. Our r
