Our technical team have been out and about across the UK meeting with software companies, talking about Azure and the journey to cloud. The briefings we have run have explored the various aspects of the journey that many people have encountered in their to move to the cloud:
- Lift and shift to get onto Azure quickly and easily, using virtual machines and our Infrastructure as a Service offering
- Make small changes to reduce running costs and enhance scalability and availability using our Platform as a Service capabilities
- Undertake some elements of redesign to start harnessing the power of serverless computing via Azure Functions, Logic Apps and Power BI
- Explore the next wave of technology innovation such as Machine Learning, AI and Bots.
In the sessions we explore architectural design and best practices. You can find the slides here.
Here are some of the briefings we have coming up, aimed at software companies:
Azure, Data and the Intelligent Cloud
London,November 9th, 2017
Are you collecting and managing all the data from your applications and systems that could give you better insights into their usage? Do you think you could learn more from the data you have? Do you want the power of machine learning and AI in your hands without the cost of a dedicated AI team? Come along for the day and learn how you can process and act on events and telemetry, and run machine learning models and deep learning on Azure in a fraction of the time of starting from scratch. We will show how to leverage services as Azure Event Hubs, Data Lake, Workbooks, Machine Learning and more.
How to Deploy, Manage, Support and Operate Azure Based Services
London, November 16th, 2017
This technical briefing will explore how you deploy, manage, support and operate Azure based services. What are the tools, tricks and services that you can employ to help your solution get up and running quickly and smoothly on the Azure platform? Our technical experts will share the secrets, based on a wealth of real life implementation scenarios, of what to look for and what to avoid.
