[Webinar] Considering Azure: What’s Next for Your IT Department?

Most people now agree that the cloud has become a core element of any enterprise’s technology strategy. Indeed, in the past few years we have seen the conversation around cloud adoption move from “if” to “when” and “how.”

Every organization, sooner or later, will become aware that running a large portion of their IT portfolio – perhaps even the majority of it – in the cloud makes sense from a variety of perspectives. Many of these organizations, though, don’t know when, where, and how to begin their cloud migration discussions.

Join us on April 26th at 2pm EDT for our webinar, Considering Azure: What’s Next for Your IT Department?

During this webinar, we will discuss many of the factors to consider as you evaluate a move to the cloud. Specifically, we will explore the Microsoft Azure platform and the technology solutions and capabilities it provides – including Microsoft Dynamics 365, Azure IoT, Mobile Apps, Machine Learning, and more.
