In my interview with Dave Ducat of Slalom Consulting, I asked him what is the greatest value for him as a MS partner moving into the Cloud?
Dave said, "Microsoft has an integrated Cloud story and any workload you want to do with the cloud is there. Infrastructure, databases with azure, unified communications and collaboration with Sharepoint in the cloud, and device monitoring management with Microsoft InTune. These are all powerful solutions with an integrated approach. Microsoft is the only vendor who has this integrated service in the cloud and we are doubling down on the business because of it."
Consider Dave's message as it pertains to your business as you transition to the cloud. Microsoft cloud products provide a full integrated solution offering, that means simplicity in deployment and maintence.
