Seminar: Developing SharePoint 2013 Websites on Azure March 2013

Seminar Series

Wednesday, March 27, 2013


Cloud cover is expanding and enveloping the business world by the minute. According to International Data Corp, worldwide revenue from public IT Cloud services exceeded $16 billion in 2009 and is forecast to reach $55.5 billion in 2014.  Microsoft Windows Azure enables you to quickly build, deploy and manage applications across a global network of Microsoft-managed datacenters.

In this seminar you will learn from Microsoft and Envision IT experts why you should choose Windows Azure. We’ll explore the technical advantages of Windows Azure, namely:

  • The ability to build applications with any operating system‚ language or tool
  • Store data using relational SQL Server databases, NoSQL table stores and unstructured blot stores
  • Windows Azure draws upon Microsoft’s global datacenters to deliver a 99.95% monthly Service Level Agreement.

Envision IT will show real examples of SharePoint 2013 web sites hosted on Azure and demonstrate how: 

  • SharePoint on Windows Azure helps reduce your time-to-market with new web sites
  • Azure provides a full extensible platform for both internal and external web sites
  • Azure saves organizations money so that you only pay for what you need

Envision IT is an Azure Circle Partner, with specific capabilities and experiences rolling out SharePoint on Azure. Come and explore the different migration and deployment options available to you from Envision IT.
