As the cloud computing platform at the forefront of providing flexible, scalable hybrid cloud infrastructure to businesses looking to leverage the power of the cloud – and with 120,000 new subscriptions per month and 90 percent of Fortune 500 companies trusting their business to Microsoft Azure – it’s clear Azure is in demand.

But, with such a broad range of services, many businesses are struggling to identify the capabilities that will meet their needs. We’ve, therefore, created an eBook – 9 signs your clients need Azure and how to win business – that looks at nine common business pain points and how specific Azure services can address them.

The first issue we address is the frequently voiced, "We want to increase profit and minimise spending".

With Azure, organisations pay for what they need, when they need it. They reduce CAPEX, and have the ability to grow, faster – able to scale without limit. Businesses can also reduce spending on infrastructure, and can automate routine management tasks – freeing IT teams to focus on more value-add work. And, of course, with moving away from on-site systems, your customers reduce the risk of downtime and the damaging knock-on effect to their business – Information Technology Intelligence Consulting cites a survey reporting 98 percent of organisations estimating that one hour of downtime costs $100,000 (£75,000).

The eBook also explores how Azure can help businesses address problems including those caused by out-of-date, legacy infrastructure, and fears for security – download a copy to see the full list.

Alex Hazeldine, Vuzion Channel Account Manager, says, "The excitement and uptake for Azure from our partners has been incredible this past year, helping us to become the fastest growing Azure Indirect CSP Provider in the UK.

"With the help of this guide and the free Azure training and workshops we provide, I’m confident we’ll be able to help our Vuzion partners grow their Azure potential and earnings even further."
